“Tip-top B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

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!!

Jackie and Jean

Says it all really. Wonderfully welcoming and friendly look no further if you want terrific Yorkshire hospitality in close proximity to Harrogate town centre. Judy and Sue run a spotlessly clean Guest House and make every effort to ensure a stay here is relaxing, pleasant and enjoyable. Great breakfasts too.

My husband and I stayed at the Alamah for 3 nights in June. Judy and Sue made us very welcome and we were able to check in earlier than the usual 5.00 p.m. which was very helpful.
Our room was very clean and the beds were comfortable and we had lots of storage and hanging space for our clothes. The breakfasts were really good and freshly made and kept us going for much of the day.
The location was ideal being just a short walk to the restaurants and shops.
We would certainly recommend the Alamah and would not hesitate to stay again should we return to Harrogate. Thank you Judy and Sue.

We stayed in the alamah 2 weeks ago in half term with our 5 year old. We received a very warm welcome from judy and sue who could not have looked after us better. The breakfasts (especially the scrambled egg) were fab and our daughter liked the relaxed environment where she could play with her sticker book while we has one more slice of toast and a cup of tea! Everywhere was spotlessly clean and the location was perfect, an easy walk to great shops, the spa or valley gardens, the best park in the world according to our daughter. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: There is a large family room

We are really pleased you enjoyed Harrogate, particularly "the best park in the world"! It was good to meet your family and it is always lovely when there are children in the house. Despite the weather you managed to pack so many places into your stay and it was really interesting hearing all about them. Thank you for reviewing the Alamah so positively and we hope you will return one day.

My wife a I have been extremely lucky to find the best Bed and Breakfast venue in the UK.
I am slightly disabled and have special needs and Judy and Sue are very understanding and helpful in making sure I am comfortable and have what I need. Our room was spotless and very spacious and comfortable and contained all that you would want with tea, coffee and hot chocolate available in the room. We have been guests at Alamah Guest House on a number of occasions and always receive a hearty welcome.
This is undoubtedly home from home and the breakfast is exceptional. Whenever we return to Harrogate, Alamah Guest House will be our first port of call.
Undoubtedly the best in the business. Chris and Lynette Backwell

Booked this as a birthday surprise for my husband and chose the Alamah based on the already good reviews it had received and how right they were. What a fab B&B. Judy and Sue are probably two of the nicest people you will ever have the good fortune to meet and they made our stay excellent, from the very warm and friendly greeting on our arrival to their serenading my husband with happy birthday as they brought in his breakfast - birthday candle and all...Brilliant. The location is perfect for exploring.Our room was spotless with the best stocked hospitality basket I've ever seen. Breakfast was a delight - what a choice. Going to Harrogate ? stay at the Alamah
