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 A cheerfully fastidious landlady Sandra, English cooked breakfasts, and comfortable enough if slightly outdated decor in some aspects.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

My husband and I has an absolutely brilliant weekend here. Sandra is such a lovely and welcoming person from our arrival on Friday 4th until we left on Monday 7th July 2014. The house is a lovely house. We stayed in one of the annex rooms at the back of the house. It was a lovely room with all we... More

Having arrived at Alexa House I had to wait 5 minutes as the owner was in fact not in & did not answer her mobile phone (which was on the front door) Later on in the evening I was unable to turn my shower on. With nobody in the Guest House whatsoever (it was 19:30 at this point) I had... More

I am really sorry about your shower valve You are right I have had it happen to other valves over the last week as I have just upgraded my water system to a high pressure one to give everyone much better shower pressure. It seems the old valves cant cope with this extra pressure. I have had them replaced as... More

Stayed here as they accepted dogs in the annex so this review is not based on the main building. Room large and well decorated, is in car park which gave some noise but not a problem. Easy walk into Harrogate.My cooked breakfast was fine but my wife felt the smoked haddock portion was a bit stingy. We were made welcome... More

Thank you for your review I am sorry you thought your fish portion was small, it is offered as a lighter option for guest who having had cereals and fruit do not want a full English breakfast. I am glad you found the room satisfactory for yourselves and your dog. Kind regards Sandra More

Back from a weekend stay at Alexa House. Most say the room was lovely - super comfy bed and fresh crisp bedding a delight to relax in after looking around all the sights. Breakfast was cooked to order in the morning which makes all the difference - nice and hot and just how we liked everything. Sandra then gave us... More

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...
