My sister and I stayed at Avondale with Ailsa and Tom for 3 nights whilst visiting family and friends in the area. The welcome we had was far and above any B&B we have stayed at. Ailsa and Tom are very friendly and welcoming and their home is beautiful and in a great countryside setting. A very peaceful place, with... More

We stayed at Avondale for 5 nights whilst in Cookstown to visit relatives - we had an excellent room overlooking the beautiful garden. Ailsa and Tom the hosts could not have been more welcoming and helpful in every respect. The breakfasts were fantastic with plenty of choice. The property is located in a quiet country lane, yet within easy distance... More

We were welcomed at Avondale by the owners/operators, Tom and Alisa who went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant, relaxing and entertaining. They were gracious in offering our party of seven sufficient space, suggestions for outings and helped in trip planning & directions. We were there in May 2014 will definitely stay again if we get back to... More

We did not anticipate such a welcoming. Tom and Alisa went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant and relaxing. We were there one year ago this month and when we get together we comment on how this was the best stay of all our trip through Ireland, England and Holland.

Recently stayed at Avondale for 4 nights, we are 3 women who go away for a 'girlie break' every year, so the configuration of 3 single beds in the one room was ideal. Very clean, lovely views, comfortable beds, great breakfasts (complete with Tom playing his fiddle for us while we ate), wonderful hospitality and would certainly recommend a stay... More

We stayed at Avondale for 3 nights and had a very comfortable stay. The owners were very hospitable and helpful and the huge breakfasts, including delicious homemade cheese scones, set us up for the day. Our room was very generously sized with a large bathroom and the usual amenities expected from a decent B & B. Everything was very clean... More

I stayed in Avondale B&B for one night. The hosts were friendly and provided me great hospitality. I lost my mobile in Cookstown and Ailsa even helped to send back to me. I will never forget this kind favour and I am sure you will enjoy this place as much as I do.Great music plus beautiful hand-crafting!

This review relates to may 2013 but you can't go that far back. We were in Ireland for a relatives wedding. When we arrived there was confusion about our room being cancelled which one of two were cancelled by another family member. In checking out we were charged £20 for the room that had been cancelled on top of our... More

AilsaMcQueen, Owner at Avondale Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

Thank you for your review of our property. Upon booking your associate paid £40 deposit and then cancelled due to a place becoming available at the hotel. The £20 you were charged at breakfast was the balance owing between the deposit and amount owed for B&B, which was explained. I am disappointed that you feel you were 'argued' with, and... More

My wife and I stayed at Avondale recently along with our baby son and we could not possibly have anticipated the amazing level of hospitality shown to us by Tom & Ailsa, who made is feel very welcome from the minute we arrived until we (reluctantly) left. Tom & Ailsa went out of their way to accommodate the needs of... More

To be able to sit around the fire and listen to Tom on the fiddle playing Irish tunes is something most B and B's can't offer. This was a memorable stay in Cookstown where our search for out 1696 roots were aided by the local folks. Great food and new friends...
