We stayed here whilst attending a work party. The guesthouse is exactly that, a guest house. It is clean, well positioned, and the landlady was very courteous. The breakfast was good, the room was unfortunately a twin, but we knew that before we arrived. It was clean tidy and to be honest was better then some larger establishments I have... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night and had a little mini break in Harrogate. Alexa house was gorgeously decorated, warm and inviting. We had room 14 at the end of the corridor which was a lovely little room with the comfiest bed I've ever slept on! Everything was immaculately clean and the shower was great. Our one regret was...

Thank you so much for your kind comments. I am glad you noticed the super new high pressure hot water system and the fact that every room has just been decorated. It was a shame you missed your breakfast but I am sure you enjoyed the sleep in. Kind regards Sandra More

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

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

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

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