3 of us have just returned from 4 nights at The Avenue. We had two quiet rooms, adjacent, on first floor, which were more economical than the larger rooms. Perfectly adequate. Our friend found the double bed left not a lot of room space and the shower room rather narrow, but for four nights it was fine. Worth checking which... More

Stayed here for 2 nights during September and it was excellent in every way for us. The room suited our needs perfectly and Steve (the owner) and the staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our time there. Everything was very clean and the breakfast's had everything you required and more. The full English was flexible and adjusted to your... More

My partner and I stayed here during the August bank holiday weekend for four nights. A great place to stay and we would be happy to go back. Only a few minutes walk to the train station and a few minutes more walk to the centre of town. Very genial host and the breakfasts were great. Our room was very... More

Stayed here for 4 nights during July and it was the perfect start for our short break. Nice spacious room with TV and tea and coffee facilities. Very clean. What sets this b&b apart from the rest is the breakfast bag/ lunch picnic the owner (Steve) offers if you can't make or don't want breakfast. Great idea!! The breakfast is... More

Only stayed for the one night but would certainly recommend The Avenue for anybody looking for a comfortable, clean and hospitable place to stay, only a 10 minute walk into the town. Steve the owner is very welcoming and was very helpful, excellent breakfast served by excellent staff and really good value for money

Stayed here for three nights in the hottest summerperiod so far this year. Big spacious room up front wirh a large bathroom. Good tv-set and lounge to sit. Lovely friendly people/staff. The only comment could be the waterpressure of the shower.

We were here for 4 nights in July. The breakfast was tasty and healthy - everything cooked to perfection - and catered for vegetarians. Our bed was very comfortable, with clean ensuite bathroom. A quiet road, with no traffic noise, yet well situated for the station.

Warm welcome from owner. Everything was very clean and it was lovely to have lounge, conservatory, garden to relax in. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and enough to last all day. Would definitely stay there again.

Lovely small hotel perfectly positioned for ease of getting to everything, including seafront, restaurants, town centre, and train station. Very friendly owner. Comfortable cozy rooms, and great little bar. But the best bit is the breakfast ... my favourite English breakfast anywhere! And if you ask nicely, you may even get it with the delicious fried bread too! And it's... More

Had a lovely long week-end with the Avenue as our base. The owner was very welcoming even though we were late arriving. We stayed in the room with the four poster, it was wonderful. Spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Nice full English served by very polite and smiley faced ladies. I will definitely be recommending it to all my friends.
