We spent one night here after an overnight flight from the states. Pat was helpful and kind, she allowed us to check into our room early, by 11:00 am. Room was small but very clean! We ended up going to bed very early and there was some house noise, but rooms were quiet by 9:30 pm. Good breakfast in the... More

They pretty much provided the perfect night away from home. The breakfast was high quality, room very clean and comfortable. Everything worked and the owners have thought of everything. I recommend everyone stay here, even if you are mega rich.

Stayed here for one night in October as visiting for a family party. Very welcoming hosts, room was absolutely lovely and the en-suite was spotless. One of the most comfortable beds I've slept in away from home. Next morning, we were treated to a delicious cooked breakfast, with lots of juices, cereals and cheeses on offer too. Very impressive for... More

My wife and I had toured Europe for one month and began in England. After staying several days in London with some friends, we went to Cambridge and stayed at Avalon House. Cambridge is a beautiful town! We enjoyed our time there and Pat really added to our experience. Her helpful advice and delicious full English breakfast is something we... More

A small and very good B&B. Very attentive and helpful owners. Delicious breakfast. We had a very nice and practical room with a good shower. It's a busy city, so expect some street noise. The price is reasonable for Oxford.

Avalon is a small but lovely B & B about 10min walk into Cambridge. Our room was pine furnished with a modern ensuite shower room ( loved the froggy tiles !). Everything was clean and spotless. Pat, the proprietor was very helpful and obliging. Any request was dealt with promptly and efficiently. Excellent breakfast, cooked with good quality ingredients, and... More

We stayed for 2 nights, and were very impressed with our bedroom. and ensuite shower room. It was comfortable and very clean. The breakfasts were superb, and my husband who has coeliac, was well catered for. Pat is a gentle and welcoming host. Avalon is in a convenient spot for the city centre, with a bus stop just outside.

Wonderful 2 night stay. Very friendly welcome, comfortable room with everything one could want and more than one would expect from a B&B. Excellent breakfast. Pleasant walk into town taking. Strongly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at Avalon on 23rd April 2012. It was our very first experience of bed and breakfast accommodation and I must say it was an excellent introduction. As we drove up to the house we found we had our own parking space to park our hire car. This was a real bonus as we later found... More
