It's always nice to feel you can safely recommend somewhere to friends and family; Alamah, run by Judy and Sue, is definitely one of those places. My friend Jackie and I couldn't fault this smashing bed and breakfast situated on a leafy road just five minutes' walk from Harrogate's town centre. Some on-site parking is available at the rear.
We received a lovely warm welcome on arrival and lots of information about where to eat and how to find our way round town. The house is tastefully decorated and our room was spotless with high quality bedding and extremely comfy mattresses. All the usual things you expect from a 4 star as well - good choice of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and Harrogate Spa Water on the hospitality tray with cookies as well! A hairdryer, radio/alarm/iPod dock, wall-mounted tv plus reading lamps completed the extras. There was plenty of storage, seating and spare sheets/blankets for anyone too hot or cold. Sockets and mirrors were sensibly located and easy to reach - how many times have you struggled to find somewhere to plug in the hairdryer? They seem to have thought of everything.
Breakfast was served in the lovely dining room, the walls boasting many of Judy's photographs of the region. Tables were set with high quality tableware and breakfast was exceptionally good. Cereals, fresh fruit, juice, yogurt were laid out to help-yourself. I can't recommend Judy's poached eggs enough; she also did scrambled eggs for some guests and brought the pan in to check if they were done to their taste before serving!
Judy and Sue clearly love being amongst people and providing an excellent service. They are willing to go the extra mile for guests where needed, including doing internet research and offering lifts in the car! They clearly enjoy the chance to chat with their guests and seemed in no hurry to see us go! So all in all an excellent stay and I hope we get the chance to go back.
Keep up the good work girls!!
