Super location, wonderful B and B, friendly owner, great breakfast, comfy rooms, lovely garden/front porch area. I can't wait to go back to Harrogate and stay there again. The house is historical and architectural.

Stayed here with my wife on a shopping trip to Harrogate. We are both doctors and feel that cleanliness and hygiene is really important. The place was absolutely immaculate. We were staying in one of the newly decorated rooms with a new bathroom and shower. I understand the lady hostess is updating some rooms and ours was fantastic. The welcome... More

Thank you so much for your kind comments Its very hard to choose where to become very boutique and look like a chain and where to keep the tradition of the building décor. The rooms are all being decorated now as you noticed and hopefully everybody will benefit from the super powerful high pressure hot water system. All food needs... More

On arrival no friendly greeting just told More early people, we only wanted to say we had parked the car in the car park.

Stayed at the Alexa House for one night and that was one night too many! Single room was very small, old fashioned and in desperate need of updating. Woodwork and wallpaper was dirty, even cobwebs on the wall. Our welcome on arrival was non existent. I didn't hold out out much hope for breakfast and indeed it was awful. It... More

Stayed 1 night in one of annex rooms. On entering there is a really strong musty/damp smell, quite overpowering ! In desperate need of refurbishment. Bedding however is crisp and clean. Ample good free parking. Helpful lady host. Superb tasty breakfast but put off by very dated and cluttered breakfast room.

Having just had a new high pressure hot water system fitted there were a few leaks which have now been sorted. All the rooms are being refurbished in during September and October. I'm sorry you don't like the style of my dining room but I do want to keep the more homely feel to the building. I am glad you... More

Very disappointed with the quality and service here for the price paid. Landlady very rude to me and other guests during breakfast. Tourist board rate 4 stars but very wrong in my opinion! My bedside table was a foldaway tv dinner table which was across the bedroom door. I am sure that this will be a fire hazard? Not happy... More

Alexa_HouseHarrogate, Owner at Alexa House, responded to this review

I think the small fold away table you are referring to is actually in the wardrobe to allow you to stand a small suitcase on it if required. It isn't a bedside table. You are of course at liberty to use it for this purpose. I am really sorry if you think I was in any way rude during breakfast.... More

On arrival we were welcomed into the main house. We were disappointed to discover that we were having to pay £50 each per night sharing a room for 3, £10 extra per night than we had expected. We were then told we had to go back out in the pouring rain to get to our room. When we entered our... More

I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay as part of what turned out to be a very noisy group.

If I had to describe a typical English B&B to someone I'd probably describe Alexa House. A cheerfully fastidious landlady Sandra, English cooked breakfasts, and comfortable enough if slightly outdated decor in some aspects. There are some nice details, such as provision of ear buds and cotton wool. The breakfasts here are good quality and with plentiful choice and quantity.... More
