A great little b and b so close to the convention centre. Colin and Brenda were great hosts and very helpful. We had a room at the top of the house and it got quite warm. Colin supplied us with a fan which made sleeping a lot easier. All the facilities were good and a nice quiet lounge too. Thank... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. As you say we are opposite the conference centre and as short walk from the centre of town. Your room was on the second floor, but as the weather had altered to extremely hot I delivered fans to the first and second floor to ensure sleep was possible in this very... More

We were so lucky to find this hotel. It was very close to the HIC and the town centre. A beautiful building, the owners were great and very hands on. We stayed in room 4 and the bedroom was excellent, the owners have obviously taken great care in the upkeep as it was fresh, clean and bright! There was attention... More

Thank you very much for your comments and high marks. All our rooms are decorated regularly by ourselves and we ensure that every room us decorated differently. The area is very quiet especially considering we are only a short walk into town and all the restaurants and wine bars. For breakfast we use fresh locally sourced ingredients which of course... More

We had a terrific stay at the Alvera Court this week. Colin and Brenda were really helpful, and the room was very comfortable. On our second day I forgot to pick up a parking permit and when I came back from the conference centre expected to find a penalty notice - in fact Colin realised what had happened and put... More

Thank you very much for your review and high marks.

Bit disappointed that Colin opted to help by carrying my wife's dress bag whilst I struggled with a heavy suitcase up three flights of stairs. Didn't get a good night's sleep on my first night as the standard double bed had a foot board. Being over 6ft 3ins caused a problem but I managed to overcome this for the next... More

We stayed at the Alvera for four nights bed and breakfast and used it as a base for travelling around North Yorkshire. We arrived early and knocked to enquire about parking in the vicinity. Colin said it would be no problem to park in the car park and directed us to the rear of the property. Asked to park between... More

We were greeted by the extremely friendly Colin after parking our car in the tiny carpark at the back. If you are looking for Victorian elegance this would not be for you. If you want, as we did, somewhere quiet, clean, comfortable and well situated, then you are in the right place. It is only minutes walk to the Conference... More

My wife and I were treating ourselves to a weekend away in Harrogate and came across Alvera Court. The reviews seemed good and so we thought we would chance it. We were not disappointed!

Great location. Very central with every attraction in Harrogate within easy walking distance. Beautiful building with period features. Colin is a perfectionist and the place is spotless. He was very kind when train delays meant a late arrival and welcomed me after usual hours and that was much appreciated. The single room I stayed in was good. Well equipped with... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us, and the great detail you have given for future guests. The reason we ask guests not to place anything on the radiators is because our radiators are painted with water based paint which would very quickly blister and look terrible. A dry towel wouldn't affect this. We are pleased you elnjoyed... More

We arrived quite tired and just wanted to have a shower and change of clothes and get out for a meal but Colin likes to chat. There was at least a 15 minute monologue in the hallway and then another long chat in the bedroom. The room was very pleasant and spotlessly clean. It was quite small and had 2... More

Thank you for your comments. Our rooms are different sizes and allocated depending on what amount is paid for them. I apologise for being too chatty and in your face, this is certainly not the intention. I try to make all guests feel at home and give them, if required information on the area and where the restaurants are etc.... More
