Alhambra Court Hotel
Ranked #9 of 47 Hotels in York
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 24, 2013

This hotel is located in a quiet road close to one of the city gates. It is an easy walk to the historic parts of the city and the Minster. It is also a simple walk to the National Rail Museum. The hotel is decorated with an eclectic collection of ornaments that make it an interesting place in which to stay. In the lower ground floor there is a convenient restaurant serving very good food. Handy if it is wet and/or you don't wish to go into the city. There is also the big advantage of a reasonably sized car park behind the hotel. The room was very pleasant and the bed very comfortable but the bathroom was rather pokey. The only downside was the lack of hot water and poor water pressure in the morning (our room was on the top floor). Helpful staff. We would happily stay there again next time we come to York

stayed here a few times, really good for york, car park at the rear of hotel for parking which is good, also very near to the minster, so ideal for when visiting york to stay as only mins from town center.

Always enjoyed our stay when we have stayed here, breakfast sets you up for the day, hotel may seem a little old fashion in its style and design to some, but as all that you need in an overnight stay, all the rooms we have stayed in have been very spacious, and clean.

would always look to book here for anytime we where wanting a place to stay in york

My partner & I stayed here for 1 night on a weekend break to York.
All the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfy.
This is a 3 star hotel trapped in a 2 star rating by the tourist board, because they ask you to pre order your dinner, makes sense to me if this saves on wastage and good on them.
It is ideally located, just a 10 min walk to York Minster and the shops.
Our dinner was lovely and well presented, and service spot on, very attentive.
We had a good nights sleep and had our usual drinks in the morning from our brewing faciliies.
Breakfast was help yourself to juices and cereals and a good cooked breakfast served by the staff. All friendly and pleasant.
I would recommend this hotel and we would stay again if we were to stop over in York.

A very attractive hotel within easy walking distance of the main centre attractions. Dogs are welcome in this hotel. Friendly staff, good breakfast, clean rooms, nice and warm. Curtains were very thick, so room was dark and location quiet, so we had a good nights sleep. Only there for two nights but would like to return again for longer. Very good value.

Room Tip: Our room was on the front of the hotel but we found it quiet.

My husband and I have just returned from spending 2 nights in York. We stayed at the Alhambra and couldn't have been more pleased about our stay. The hotel itself is just a short walk from The Minster and all the usual sight seeing places.

As for the hotel we were very pleased and surprised with it, the rooms were airy and bright, although the bathroom was on the small side but nothing you couldn't handle, the beds were comfortable and the staff were so friendly and helpful , we took advantage of the restaurant on our last evening and the meal exceeded all out expectations the food was piping hot and cooked to high standard our congratulation to the chef. Breakfasts were equally as good with a choice of full English or poached or scrambled eggs plus cereals etc.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and if we had occasion to return to York would have no hesitation in staying there again
