On a business trip and looking forward to my stay in Harrogate- been for a conference every year for 20 years- I was really disappointed compared to all my other experiences in this town. I found my room quite scruffy with holes in the wall and black dirty marks all over the walls, all the milk in the complementary tea... More

I apologised for the milk, I am sure that not all of it can have been out of date as I had a new housekeeper in February who has possibly been adding new milk on top of old. We have now checked every room and made sure the milk is checked on every departure. There are 2 holes in the... More

Stayed here for one night for a family occasion in Harrogate. Good location with the ability to walk into town and with it's own car park. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly, given our keys and were offered access to the free WiFi. Me and my partner stayed in one room in the main house and my parents stayed in... More

I am sorry you didn't like the UHT Milk... if you had asked me you would have been welcome to a jug of fresh milk. The water pressure in the main building has been a bit hit and miss, we are working on a solution with the plumber now. Kind regards Sandra More

We stayed in room 2 in February 2014. For only £82 bed and breakfast we considered it excellent value considering the free car park (I stayed in a hotel in Harrogate last summer which charged £5 per night for parking), the handy location (only a ten minute stroll down the hill into the centre of Harrogate), the tasty and extensive...

I was disappointed with my experience after reading all of the other reviews on here. The room was ok if not a bit on the small side but the bathroom was ridiculous. I'm 5ft 2 and couldn't stand up in the bath to have a shower or lie down fully to have a bath. It also wasn't as close as... More

We've just returned from a two night stay at Alexa House. We stayed in Room 2 with a comfortable king-size bed but the room itself was small and the en-suite very snug (although the shower itself was a good size). It was all okay but slightly dusty and with a strange dark pink chandelier in a green room and generally... More

décor is a matter of individual taste and I am sure you will be surprised to know that Room 2 is actually very popular. The water heater has now been attended to and the pressure difficulty adjusted. I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay Kind regards Sandra More

The accommodation was full of character and charm. It was very clean and in a brilliant location to walk into the centre of Harrogate. Sandra was lovely and welcoming and offered us many and varied options of places nearby for an evening tipple. We are not usually early risers at the weekend so breakfast until 9am was an effort but... More

All round a pretty crap stay. Checkin was mundane, my room was in the car park (no joke). The room itself was cold and a converted shed. With lights right outside the window. The shower head was encrusted in black mold and the water smelt disgusting. Mold in most areas of the bathroom. No wifi signal at all down in... More

I think you will find that full English freshly cooked breakfast is served until 9am as you are told when you check in and it does say on the back of your bedroom door. If you choose to come down for breakfast after 9am I realise that cereals are possibly a poor substitute but it was better than nothing. All... More
