Great location Carole very friendly and helpful Great breakfast Comfortable bed Great facilities in the room
The staff were very friendly and helpful, and there was a great choice at breakfast time: traditional English, Mediterranean, vegetarian, etc. The wifi had a very strong signal.
Very Friendly Good Knowledge of the area excellent food convenient location for walking into the city Will visit again
Carole is very welcoming and shares great info about the city and things to do, breakfast was delicious, very clean room, calm location but close to the centre, everything ran like clockwork which meant we could just enjoy ourselves!
Nice room nice staff nice breakfast = excellent stay
Nothing. I couldn't fault a thing.
The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, room was lovely and breakfast was superb. Carole was lovely and very helpful.
everything was very good
found the room alittle small
Great breakfast choice, clean and comfortable accommodation. This guest house is in a great area on the 'Bishy Road' area which has a good selection of coffee shops, restaurants and local shops. It's only a 5 minute walk into York so it's very accessible.
Small double bedroom was a little too small and I think would be better as a good size single room. Storage space was limited.
Very friendly reception Spacious rooms Quiet central location
One of the best breakfast ever!
Location, breakfast (both awesome). Very friendly. Clean and well organised.
Not much I can say.
The shower was excellent, lovely and hot, the breakfast was superb with lots of different options available, with black pudding as well, marvellous
The radiator in our bedroom did not work so the room was slightly cold on an evening and through the night
The owner: a very pleasant and helpful lady. Gives useful background info to York at the start of your stay. The homely nature of the B&B: clean, well-maintained etc.
The housekeeping: The lady that did the cleaning had relocated quite a few of the things in our room...into drawers and cupboards etc. Spent ages trying to find things that she'd tidied away...this was hugely unsatisfactory. The breakfast: Great if you stick to the Full English. The other more international options are a pale imitation of what authentic foreign food is really like. The internet: Extremely patchy. The location: Not ideally situated...a fair bit of walking involved.
Easy walk from the Station and into the City. Very clean and well run with excellent staff. Room small but perfectly adequate although shower-room is tiny for a fat old man like me. Superb breakfast, freshly cooked in the morning.
location superb; walking distance from railway station and city centre; friendly, helpful landlady; comfortable single room, well-equipped with very good ensuite; light and spacious breakfast room and very good breakfast choices
Friendly and helpful hosts . Excellent breakfast.
Room needs sprucing up.
Amazing location and clean large rooms with excellent facilities and food. Lovely, welcoming staff. Nothing was too much trouble (including using their personal kitchen to heat milk for my baby in the middle of the night). Would recommend (and have already!) and use again next time we're in York.
Only slight issue for us was the lack of a sitting room as we had a young child so were keen to be out of the room while they went to sleep (we ended up sitting in the breakfast room which was fine, but a little uncomfortable after a while). Unlikely to be an issue for people without children.
Personal service, friendly and efficient.
When we arrived at Avondale we were greeted by our host Carole with warm enthusiasm to get us settled in and find out what our plans were for the weekend. We told her we were here sightseeing and to visit the many museums in York. Carole gave us an extensive insight to the city giving us maps and a heads up on the city with places to go and things to see which made our stay very relaxed :-) the room was very comfortable and the facilities good. The breakfast was out if this world with a large selection of hot and cold foods lovely coffee too in a lovely breakfast room. The staff were also very accommodating and knowledgeable about the city and it's history which just made the whole experience lovely.
Avondale B&B sure is a nice place to stay. Warm welcome, warm atmosphere and great breakfast.
Personal friendly service made my stay a stress free enjoyable experience. Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and breakfast again was excellent with a great choice on the menu. Recommend to anyone visiting York.
There was a good choice of breakfast - you could mix and match anything on the menu, and it was all delicious. Carole made us feel at home on arrival and gave us lots of ideas for things to do in York. The room was small but comfortable and very well equipped. It was in a great location close to the centre and only minutes from bars and restaurants.
- good breakfast - nice hostess
- small rooms - slow wifi - fair cleanliness - expensive for what you get
What a gem of a place. I travelled to York to visit my best friend for a day out shopping and mooching around York. Met with a warm welcome. I had the Daisy room which was cosy and comfortable and appreciated the little extras like cleanser and cotton wool!! The breakfast was delicious and you really are spoilt for choice. Absolutely delicious. Carole and her team are fabulous...will be back again soon I hope.
