We stayed at Avondale over the Easter weekend. Again we felt right at home. We were sad to leave! Breakfast was tasty. We tried Pearl's breakfast muesli for the first time and it was delicious. We'll be back again soon. Hayley

Another perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city! This is the 3rd stay at Avondale and we love it more with every visit. Breakfasts were as usual the best you can get (see snaps attached). We stayed over the Easter period and there was a lot to do around Keswick. Our favourite day was Sunday, where there...

The Avondale is amazing! This was my second visit and I was not disappointed. Tony and Pearl are very welcoming and go out of their way to ensure guest comfort. The Avondale is spotlessly clean and the breakfasts are delicious (I would recommend trying Tony's breakfast stack). The room I stayed in was very comfortable and the locally produced soap...

Our second visit to Avondale was just as good as our first. Spotlessly clean and comfortable room and fantastic breakfasts to set you up for your day out walking. It is perfectly situated, a few minutes walk from the town. People may be put-off by the lack of private parking but don't be as you can always get a parking...

I booked Avondale at the last minute before taking a much needed break away from home. From the minute I spoke to the owner on the phone I knew I had made a good choice.
