From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and comfortable. The Breakfast was the best I have ever experienced, lots of choice. Ten minutes walk into the city centre or a tour bus stop over the road. Our visit to York was the first time, but we on managed to visit a few places,...

We just had our third stay at Avondale, and every time Carole greats us like old friends. You couldn't ask for a warmer reception. The location is only a few minutes walk from town (and you have to have a Belgian beer in La Place Verte on your way there and back!) and, although located on a pretty busy road,...

Great Bed & Breakfast in York. Such a warm and helpful host, Carole was brilliant. Extraordinary breakfast incl. the famous whisky-porridge, nice other guests, friendly staff. Thank you Carole for checking traintimes and daytrips. We were so happy we had chosen this B&B. Situated close to the city-center and the train-station you don't need a car. Rooms downstairs more comfortable...

My friend and I stayed with Carole for three nights. She was very welcoming and we were made very comfortable. Guest house is conveniently situated for reaching all York's many attractions on foot. Public transport also passes the door. Lots of leaflets and brochures provided in the room and Carole is a veritable mine of information about York and surroundings....

My husband and I loved our stay at The Avondale. Carole had emailed us a map and information about York when we reserved. She is extremely knowledgeable about York and the surrounding area and she was always happy to answer questions for us. Thanks to her, we took a lovely walk along the city's south wall on our first evening...

My daughter & I went to this guest house for 2 nights, Friday & Saturday. When we arrived we were greeted by a warm friendly smile, even though our train was delayed & we arrived late.

Stayed for two nights on a short city break this march, after missing our planned break last december because snow disrupted our travel plans back then. We were grateful that the deposit we had paid for our original missed booking was offset against the cost this time - a welcome gesture by Carole, the proprietor. Friendly staff made our stay...

We had a lovely stay in this very warm and friendly B&B. Carole really worked so hard to accommodate my family. We are vegans and weren't really expecting many of the breakfast options to be available to us, but we were overwhelmed, as Carole had specially made us some delicious banana bread and orange cake, bought in vegan yoghurts and...

I stayed at Avondale last week on a 3 day city break to York. Close to the city centre, the Guesthouse was very comfortable, the hostess was extremely friendly and helpful and happily provided information about the local area. The food, in particular, was wonderful and I can fully recommend the Whisky Poridge to start one off on a day's...

I would like to publicly apologise to Mr Stanton I would never intentionally put a guest through this awful experience. These 'little pests' have affected many of us last year and I would like to assure guests that this is taken very seriously and dealt with promptly. As with any other guest house or hotel these rooms cater to many...
