The best thing about this place was the breakfast - wow! They certainly put a maximum amount of effort into that. This was an okay B&B otherwise. It seems pretty typical Victorian with serpentine stairway cases and rooms hidden in every nook and cranny. I could picture a Dickens character staying there navigating around the corridors with a candle. We... More

The owners were very nice people and helpful with local knowledge. Breakfast was selected from a menu and not displayed, which personally we didn't mind, and came well cooked and presented. However, we found the double bedroom on the small side with limited hanging space in the form of a wall mounted rail. Not a problem if you are only... More

Beware of staying during the working week as parking is a challenge. Despite an AA award for 2015 there were little details that spoilt a very nice location. The heating would not turn down easily, the carpet was stained, the glass shelf beside the basin was falling off the wall, the plug in the bathroom leaked, the tiling in the... More

Well located just near the centre of Seaford, although tricky to park before shops close as only parking is on main road but we managed it. A typical guest house that offered warm, comfortable accommodation. We had a triple room that was roomy, comfortable and attractive. Fresh towel bale on each bed; plenty of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits;... More

Nice clean room very welcoming couple who were able to accomodate an early start the next day. Also good secure parking for my trike. Breakfast was great. Good value. The bathroom and shower room are not en suite which is advised on booking.

Not a particularly nice place and no parking (despite some internet sources misleadingly referring to it as being 'complimentary'. The truth is, aside from a few spaces out front on the road, there is potentially parking, but it could be a distance away and it is street parking). Over-priced and old fashioned. When I spoke to the owner regarding check... More

Every time I have gone back to visit my old home town I have stayed at the Avondale, Martin and Jane have always been extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms have always been very clean and the breakfast is second to none, The only downside, and this is common to all the hotels that are close to town, Is that... More

We had two family rooms and a double room, and was very impressed with the lovely welcome, homely atmosphere and the location being right on the edge of the town. The choice of breakfast items was more than sufficient and nothing was too much for the staff. We had a large party of nine and we all received our breakfast... More
