Carole was super friendly, nice room with recently done en suite. Breakfasts were very good indeed, from the well stocked buffet, croissants and fresh fruit to a full English with a speciality whisky porridge thrown in! 5 min walk to the castle, really handy for centre of town and all attractions.

Having stayed in a lot of B&B's we would rate Avondale number 1. A spacious family room with toys, books and a cuddly friend for bedtime. A fantastic choice for breakfast, we are all vegetarians and have never so much choice. Extremely helpful staff and a brilliant location. We will be visiting again.

We had a wonderful 3-day stay at Avondale. Carole is an absolute delight. Her cheerful and knowledgeable overview of what to see and do in York was terrific and made our experience in York much richer than it otherwise would have been. We walked into the city every day, and with Carole's excellent suggestions managed to have a different walk... More

really enjoyed my stay. Owner and staff friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and well-appointed. Food good with varied b.fast menu. Would recommend to anyoneThere were previous residents there who were clearly very comfortable there. Surrounding area pleasant with many eating places. Also. situated close to sites such as city walls and railway museum. The latter is terrific!

After a long day of driving Carole, the owner, welcomed us warmly and we had a wonderful stay! Our room was small but had everything we needed! Breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed the ambience in the dining area especially meeting other guests. The location was perfect. We could walk along the wall into the city centre in about 15...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at the Avondale Guest House. We had the front top floor room - even though it was on a busy road, it was very peaceful. The facilities were great. It is located within easy walking distance of all the major sights. Carole was a gracious and extremely helpful host - recommending many local... More

I had a great weekend at York! Nice old timey room with a very modern bath room, and a comfortable bed. And I had a GREAT breakfeast. (Do remember to ask for non-lactose milk in before hand) I especially enjoyed the whiskey porridge! I had a bit of problem with my shoe laces and my shirts - and I got... More

We stayed here for a night as we wanted somewhere close enough to walk into the centre - and it was absolutely perfect. We arrived quite late after a long drive but were made to feel very welcome. The breakfast choice and quality was stunning, and the room was clean and tastefully decorated. We were given a parking permit which... More
