Stayed here last week (7th April for 2 nights) and the hotel is lovely. Traditional decor, our room was large and well kept. The staff were very friendly. Didn't eat in the restaurant but the breakfasts were perfect to get you ready for the day ahead in York. Was good to be just outside the town centre, allowed us to... More

I really enjoyed my stay here - it was clean, the room was large, it was quiet and everyone was friendly. I am an extremely difficult person to please, however, and I have a minor grumble about the breakfast, so I did not give it the full five dots possible. The service is slow. They aren't good at reading body... More

We selected this hotel for its location and free on site parking. The hotel is located in a very quiet street, 5 mins walk from the Minster and the winding pedestrian streets of York. Fabulous location and really easy to find. The staff were so friendly and accommodating - they went out of their way to make us feel welcome.... More

The hotel provided a quiet place in a good location from Minster and railway station. Bathroom had a shower over the bath. Bedroom furniture was rather cheap although most importantly the beds were comfortable and clean, along with the towels. Breakfast had a rather dated feel with tinned fruit and rice krispies (other cereals were available) on offer. The quality... More

Another excellent weekend in York and our first time at this hotel.. A pleasant stay, very clean rooms and quaint decor. The staff were extremely friendly, efficient and plenty of them to ensure a pleasant stay. The double room was fairly spacious, small bathroom but clean and well serviced. Usual full English breakfast was a little greasy but the evening... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in March and have to say was very impressed by it all. Excellent location to explore the city Of York from. You are a short stroll from the Minster and have many shops and restaurants nearby. (Including a Sainsburys Local) also only a 10 minute walk from the train station. Most of... More

Just returned from three days in the beautiful and historical city of York, 21st to 23rd March 2015. The Alhambra Court Hotel is situated just outside the city walls and within easy walking distance of the Minster area of the city through Bootham Bar. The hotel benefits from an ample car park to the rear, and its postion in St... More

We ended up here at the last minute following a mix up with a booking elsewhere... Long story! It's a lovely hotel, full of character, all creaky stairs and uneven floorboards, which I love. There are a lot of stairs, but we discovered the lift and then our trek to the second floor was a lot easier! Food in the... More

A warm welcome awaits you at the Alhambra Court Hotel. Perfectly positioned for York Minster, Theatre Royal and the open top tour bus that you can jump on and off throughout the day. Rooms were comfortable and clean, and more importantly, quiet. Food is excellent and all staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The railway station is walkable if... More
