I had emailed the evening before arriving to enquire about parking at the property, as we would be arriving earlier than the check-in time of 3pm. I received a quick reply and was informed we could park on the road and they would give us a parking permit (as was likely the car park would still be full). On arrival,... More

Thank you for your very informative review. We recently removed nets from our windows as we, and guests felt that these were too old fashioned now.

I was a bit concerned as we drove in as a lady came out looking rather serious and very curtly told us where to park. I needn't have worried as Brenda is a very nice lady and we had a chat to her before we left. Just needs to have a cheerful greeting. The room was of medium size but... More

Thank you very much for your review which certainly gives a great view of Harrogate and Knaresborough. It says so much in great depth which is ideal for our next guest. Thank you. Sorry you didn't enjoy our bacon, it is difficult to get something which everyone likes, but when we asked guests whether they would like smoked or unsmoked... More

Reading many of the reviews the following was not what we expected at all so I guess it shows you not to just go by reviews in selecting a place to stay!

Thank you for taking the time to comment and give a very in depth report. Your arrival at 10.30am in the morning was greeted and you were directed into our car park which hold six cars, and has turning space to exit.

Clean, comfortable rooms and the hotel so conveniently placed for the town centre. This was a friendly place to stay and nothing was too much trouble for Colin and Brenda who often anticipated our needs.

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.

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.

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.

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
