I travel around the world for my job and so I've stayed in my fair share of B&B's and hotels. I always like the idea of a cosy B&B but rarely are they up to scratch. A lot are run down and in need of a good freshen up.. rooms tatty, shower not working properly etc. This place is nothing... More

We were greeted by the son saying his mother was away and he was in charge but he said he couldnt cook and did we want a cooked breakfast? We found our own way to our room up some really steep stairs and as wife had just had a knee replacement we found it a bit awkward. Everywhere was exceptionally... More

I apologise if my Son didn't show you to your room as he would normally do this, and would help take your bags upstairs too, I have mentioned this to him to make sure he always does this in future. I do have a downstairs room, for future reference, if you find the stairs difficult, and if you do come... More

Such a welcoming guest house. Clean and well maintained bedroom. Lovely breakfast. Full English cooked to perfection. Nice to have somewhere to safely leave our bicycles overnight without putting them back in the car. Obviously popular as full both nights we were there. The landlady couldn't have been friendlier

A small, 5 bed guest house. Adequate, comfortable rooms. Our shower was spacious. Tea making facilities,TV and free wi-fi. We only stayed for one night, as we were attending a family par sty, this was quite a privilege as they normally do not take short lets. The breakfast was plentiful and well cooked. We were greeted in a friendly and... More

We stayed here late in September for one night on a Saturday. Welcome was nice and friendly and check in was swift. The room was a lot better than we expected (we tend to stay in Hotels, premier inns or the like for a bit more comfort now we are in our forties) Spacious, comfortable bed, lovely bathroom, multi channel...

A very good guest house, comfortable beds in every room with immaculately clean bedding. Good electric showers in the ensuite bathroom. Very good breakfast with a good choice, freshly cooked to order.

Spent two nights here whilst away with work, very centrally located. Received a friendly welcome & the room was very clean, no thrills but more than adequate (wifi available). Excellent breakfast, cereals, full English, toast, juices, tea / coffee etc.

I was working in Banbury in June and visited Avonlea Guest House. Set back off the main road with its own car park outside made it very easy to find. I was welcomed and made to feel at home as soon as I arrived by the owner. Lovely and clean throughout and everything that you could want for a comfortable... More

Spotless en-suite, with good-sized hot shower. Nice large supportive bed, so bedroom a little cramped but plenty of clothes storage. Green trees across the fairly busy road. Typical good cooked breakfast, with fresh ingredients. Only suggestion would be to have wholemeal toast as a choice. Friendly & helpful proprietor & staff.
