“One of the best B&Bs we've visited”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

Very friendly owners, warm and nicely decorated rooms, very tasty breakfast. 5-10 minutes walk from Bath city centre. No parking, but the possibility to arrange parking in the nearby street. Narrow and steep stairs (this is Britain after all), but not a problem for us.

Excellent location (literally a 10 minute walk to the center of town) and much quieter than you'd expect being so close to a busy road. Julie's mum did a great job getting us settled in and making sure we had a place to park our car. She also put together an excellent breakfast.
The place isn't fancy and is quite expensive for what you get, at least when compared to what we encountered in Ireland. However, there seem to be very few reasonably-priced last minute B & B options available in that part of England.

A few photos show mould on the lamp! But ignore this as in truth this is a lovely Place with a helpful and friendly owner. The location is a lovely stroll (5-10mims max) from the wonderful centre of bath, the rooms were really clean and tidy, and the breakfasts were lovely with a great choice, really excellent. We would reccomend and will stay again! Thank you!!

We arrived early but Julie gave us our room key and parking permit so we could have a preliminary look around Bath while our room was made ready. The Avon is in a quiet location yet only 5 minutes level walk from from the city centre and all attractions. Bath is well worth a visit. Our room was absolutely superb, we could not fault it in any way. Breakfast was plentiful and excellently cooked. The Avon was spotlessly clean throughout and of good quality furnishings. Service was discreet, friendly, helpful and with a relaxed attitude. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Avon. We intend to visit Bath again and will endeavour to stay at the Avon, even if it means adjusting our dates a little. Many thanks to Julie, the proprietor.

We stayed at Avon Guest House the same time as you who wrote a bad thing and actually you asked too much of Julie Expecting her to check the ingredients in something you should have told her before about it when you booked up also it is not very fair on Julie she was on her own on the day you went back how would you like it if you were by yourself and how to get all the food ready for everyone and someone kept on talking to you also you did not have the Breakfast which she made for you and you could have phoned her up 1 hour before to say sorry that you could not have the breakfast you were asking too much of her. People do not have time to talk to you when they are on there own it is a real cheek of you expecting that.

We stayed one night at the Avon guest house during July 2011. Julie, the proprietor, seemingly nice at first, became overly aggressive with guests (which we observed) including ourselves. The beds were uncomfortable (you could feel springs) and all the carpets looked as though they needed a good thorough cleaning. Breakfast was a disaster and came late. During breakfast Julie would whip in and out of the dinning area without considering if her guests had finished speaking. Her personal style was overly familiar and lacked attentiveness or a gentle touch. I cannot recommend this hotel as such.

We stayed at the Avon for two nights, and have nothing but praise for Julie Tavener and her family. The rooms were clean and well appointed, and the breakfasts were excellent!
Many Thanks and well done.
