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.
We liked everything ,except we couldn't get wi fi my teenage granddaughter missed her iPad in the evening but it could have been due to the stormy weather we were having .The house is lovely ,staff very welcoming ,and the breakfast was excellent ,thank you .
No wifi reception .
If you travel by train, Avondale Guest House is really easy to find. Carole is really helpful and friendly. She provided me with all the information a tourist would possibly need, including cozy places for tea breaks and best spots for panoramic views of York. I do not think that York's TIC would have done this job better :) Her English breakfasts were to die for. Really really enjoyed it and am thinking about coming back :)
The room Daisy is really small. If you travel with baggage, I would recommend you booking a larger room. My personal preference - shower head with hose to just an attached head.
Very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable room and excellent breakfast. Quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre but still within an easy 10 minutes walk.
It was like being at home! Everything was awesome!
Loved the choices for breakfast as well as the location. Great to park the car and not need it again!
Felt very welcome and comfortable, will definitely return.
Friendly and helpful staff. Room small but comfortable. Delicious breakfast. Reasonable location.
Every thing.Welcomed by Carole on arrival ,who offered to carry case to room.Nothing too much trouble.All staff very friendly.Well situated for both station and city centre.Will be going back in future when next visiting York
The B&B was in an ideal location for walking to the city centre, breakfast was delicious, our room was very comfortable and the staff were very welcoming and gave us lots of helpful tips about York.
We have just returned home from our very enjoyable stay at Avondale - we were welcomed into Carol's home and nothing was too much trouble! The guest house (including our room) was very clean, comfortable and relaxing. The breakfasts were amazing - really tasty - I can recommend the whisky porridge!! A short stroll along the river bank took us into the City Centre in no time at all - we will certainly return to Avondale when next in York!
This Guest House was very homely, with friendly, professional staff. We were extremely impressed by the extra 'touches' like flowers in the room, hand cream and make up remover, and large cups for hot drinks with sachets of milk placed in a container of ice cubes. It seemed everything had been thought of in order to make our stay extremely comfortable. The breakfasts were freshly prepared and cooked to perfection. (During our 2 day stay, my husband and I tried 3-out of a choice of 6-from the menu)! We loved the whisky porridge-and I don't even like whisky! We were full until the evening. On our last day we wanted to spend more time in the city.We were able to leave our luggage at the Guest House, and keep the car parked in the allocated permit space until the time came for us to return home. I have never written a Guest House review before, but this place is special.
Avondale is run by Carole the owner who makes you very welcome and really helpful on tips for places to visit and eat etc. the visitor information in the rooms is very comprehensive I would highly recommend the breakfasts are first class all homemade from fresh produce you must try the whiskey porridge
Very friendly and helpful staff. Lots of information given about things to do as well as the history of York. Good breakfast. Nice room with everything we needed.
Bedrooms very small
Breakfast. Friendliness of owner
Unfortunately room was cold. Appeared to be a problem with the heating
Staff very friendly and food excellent!
I had a different - excellent - breakfast every morning, and there are still plenty to try next time. It was my second visit, so I knew it would be great.
There isn't anywhere to put a computer or write. However, as I didn't have time to do anything like that, it didn't matter to me on this occasion. The single room uses space very efficiently.
Staff, location, breakfast, warmth, child's facilities.
Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Room comfortable. Excellent breakfast
