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.

I travel around and stay between two and three nights at a place, mainly Hotels. This The Avondale was an eye opener. Friendly helpful, with an excellent breakfast, and I am picky for this as it makes my day to start. Above all a very safe place with staff much better then in some classy hotels, as said rather tiny... More

This bed and breakfast is good value, especially if you are sharing a room. My double room with shared bath was very clean and well supplied with complimentary toiletries etc. The bed was comfortable and the room had plenty of storage space. The decor throughout is traditional and some areas need sprucing up, but if you need an inexpensive bed... More

We spent two nights at The Avondale, and though the deco is very 1980's it sure gives you a good breakfast! The beds are very comfortable and the rooms extremely clean. Coffee, tea and biscuits provided as well as nice toiletries in the bathroom. Our rooms number 12 and 5 were very small though others in our party had larger... More

Stayed for one night as usual hotel in Newhaven fully booked. Do not usually stay in B&B's, but very pleasantly surprised by welcome, room, facilities and excellent breakfast. Highly recommended, and I will return.

we received rather a strange welcome. the room was basic although it had a nice view of the sea.. Unusually there was a totem pole in the back garden! They served a delicious breakfast. enjoyed Seaford though

Friendly b&b very close to town center. My room was very clean and quiet even if it was near the main road. Good breakfast with homemade marmelade and fresh coffee. Easy to find free parking just outside after 5pm. Free wifi. Only downside was the shared shower/bath with very low ceiling but I can live with that for the price... More

The Avondale is well situated right in the town centre, making access to trains and buses for attractions a real dream. Very well appointed, spotlessly clean, and a magnificent breakfast! Good, friendly service - I'd put it at the top of my list when I'm next in the area.
