“Ideal Location & Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

I recently had a weekend here as part of a small group and was very pleased with the hotel both in terms of its location and general ambience.

It's only a few hundred yards from one of the old city gates and about 10 minutes walk to the Minster and central part of the city. The hotel has plenty of free parking at the back of the building which is another bonus. My single (small double) room was very clean and nicely firnished and both the bed and pillows were very comfortable.

Service was very good and the reception staff were excellent. Breakfast was good and the evening meal was OK if nothing special (which is why I've only given 4 stars).

I'd very happy to stay there again.

Spent two nights here,dinner,bed & breakfast. Hotel in great location,only 5 minute walk through the park into the city. Hotel also has it's own car park to the rear.
Staff friendly and keen to please. Evening meal was part of our package. this like the breakfast was acceptable.
Hotel decor a little dated,but bedroom was clean and tidy. Usual tray of tea/coffee etc, only item missing was some bottled water perhaps.
Overall a pleasant stay.

Stayed for two nights at Alhambra Court and can highly recommend this hotel. Reception staff friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble, even to taking group photographs on the stairs. Public areas and bedrooms spotlessly clean and spacious. Breakfast was traditional fare and first class.
Good location to visit York attractions only 10 minute walk to York minster and other tourist areas.
Would definitely stay again.

Booked for a 2 night stay Fri & Sat. Room on the top floor was satisfactory if a little tired. Bathroom needed a little tcl - new shower curtain & loo seat - but otherwise fine. Breakfast was good traditional though unimaginative - sliced bread toast, no croissants, limited fruit. Staff were helpful & friendly. Easy walk into city centre, 7-8 mins to the Minster.

Had a nice stay at the Alhambra. The location is perfect for a weekend in York, just a short walk to the centre and train station. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakkie was good although being from Lincolnshire the sausages weren't up to my usual standards! Aside from this, very good and would definitely stay again.

Stayed here with two friends for a weekend and it was absolutely ideal. The staff are all super friendly and the hotel itself is clean and has a great atmosphere. The location as well is great at barely 10 minutes walk from the centre. Couldn't be happier really!

Wonderful place to stay to visit the Minster and other areas of interest in York. Comfortable, clean, quiet but also cheerful. We spent two nights and would certainly return on another occasion. The staff are friendly and accommodating, breakfast (the only meal we ate at the hotel) was excellent -- the place has a homey feel.
