My husband and I booked into this hotel as we loved Our walks on the coast of Sussex. The host told us we had a room without bath which we thought strange in this day and age and the price was of par to high class hotels ensuit in Eastbourne and Brighton. But we wanted seaford so we picked this... 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

I stayed at this Seaford B&B for 2 nights in June 2015. Firstly, the positives - location was in good proximity to the train station, town centre & the beach. The room itself was clean & of a good size, with plenty of storage space for clothes etc. A kettle, coffee & tea was also in the room & there... More

I have been staying at The Avondale for many many years now and wouldn't stay anywhere else in this part of England. Though some of the rooms do run small and the decor seems a little dated, the rooms are always very clean and the breakfast is awesome. The beds are very comfortable and I like that they provide tea,... More

We needed a place at short notice for my family of four from Holland. After bad experiences in England in the past, this was a most pleasant surprise. We had a double bed with two single beds for the children, with our own bathroom/toilet and good hot shower. Good beds, spotless room with everything you could ask for. And a... More

Walked into the hotel and it smelt like an old people's home! Room was meant to be a family room but was very cramped, had two signal beds and a DOUBLE CAMP BED! The matress on the CAMP BED had spits in and was about 2inches thick, it felt like I was speeping on the floor! for the money I... More

Very good breakfasts, beds comfortable, rooms a little down at heel, stairs steep and narrow. There are seat lifts on stairs but if you're using canes or poles, it's a bit risky. Was reception lady having a bad week, or is she always this mirthless?

I had a very pleasant stay over this past weekend, the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was cooked to order and was very good indeed. Yes I would stay again! Seaford itself is a mixture of quirky shops and restaurants, along with a few pubs, all of which could do with a good refirbishment.

Ideal for the ferry from Newhaven. Room was fine and bed very comfortable. Breakfast served until 9 AM only though. This is a shame and surprised the owners don't review this as this is really the only fault I can find here.
