What they’re saying

The Alexander centre made us so welcome as a tenant. We used this as a temporary beauty salon after experiencing a significant fire. We stayed for 15 months all of which we were very well looked after by the friendly helpful staff. It was a real struggle to leave and return to our original premises as we were made to feel so at home and nothing was ever too much trouble. Thank you Ali and team for all your help and support. I will be forever grateful and feel so privileged to experience working in an amazing beautiful building.
