This is a fairly basic but clean guest house probably used by most for a night's stay before flying off somewhere or returning. perhaps. I used this to visit someone nearaby and it was useful but it is basic in t hat you get a reasonable sized room bed and en suite but all needs decorating and possibly updating. I... More

Stayed here for one night so as to catch an early plane the next day. The airport is close (ten minute drive). The - what I assume is - owner was very friendly, accommodating and welcoming. If you've no travel to the airport organised she helps you with a taxi. There are takeaways about a mile down the road which... More

the good part is that it is easy parking but thats it, nowhere to go, nothing to do and the TV was very old with awful reception and a poor shower, read a book, fell asleep then left, a place which is easy to forget

Arrived late as arranged, key would not open room door. Staff failed to open it too. Had to climb into room via window as my luggage had been placed in room earlier. Was made to feel like it was own fault! I would Never stay here again and would not recommend this place at all. Would give it a minus... More

I was assured by the staff both upon booking & on the morning of the flight that there was a bus to take us to the airport at 18mins past every hour. I checked & double-checked with them which bus stop it was (there's no sign for it, you're just told "the wooden fence opposite the crown pub"). Wanting to... More

I don't know where to start! I could write a book about all the things that went wrong... 1. No one welcomed us, we were looking for staff for 10 minutes, we had to ring the door bell a few times. 2. A VERY VERY drunk lady appeared. She was so drunk that she couldn't hold a pen or walk... More

Stayed at Avalon one night with my daughter as we had 6am flight next day. We had a great stay - everything we needed in a small, privately run guesthouse. I asked for an early check-in (midday) and this was easily arranged over the phone. I received a really warm welcome from the owner who immediately organised our early morning... More

The lodge was nice enough. Was clean, easy to access from train station, free wifi, but is an old house so no soundproofing. I wanted an early night because I had to be up at 4:45am for my flight, but the family upstairs were so loud - I could hear every word and every footstep, and when they did finally... More

The plaque out front is confusing, as is the fact that the building is only an extended end-of-terrace house. We were given the "quietest" room in the house, but had to go downstairs at around 11pm to the room below and ask the occupant to keep the noise down as we were getting up at 4am for an early flight,,...
