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

From the friendly welcome, the warm and comfortable room to the hearty, well cooked breakfast, this was a tremendously pleasant stay. A welcome antidote to modern chain hotels. I'll seek this peaceful haven out next time I am fortunate enough to sojourn in the lovely City of York.

We booked the Alhambra for a one night stay on a Saturday. Other city centre hotels were twice the price but we paid £85 for a double room as a last minute deal. The hotel is perfectly situated-a ten minute stroll and you're in the city centre- yet the street is very quiet. The carpark is a good size and... More

Not a bad place but would not stay again. Bed uncomfortable breakfast is tiny - expensive for what it is. We only stayed one night but was one of the worst nights sleep I have ever had! Staff are quite friendly though and they do try to make you feel comfortable.

It's difficult to get into this hotel as it get's booked up rather quick ( it seems that way anyway when we want to go there ). We have been in a number of rooms there over the year's and they have all been comfortable. The service is just as good and so is the food. Only 10 mins into... More
