Stayed at Hotel Avalon in July. We were slightly snookered in that we (including a one year old) needed somewhere asap and tracked James down through a friend of a friend.

We came here to spend some nights in Bansko klimbing mountains. James, the boss of this hotel, was able to assist with valuable tips, his wife and the rest of the crew had been friendly. What else could I say?

Hotel Avalon, it's owner and staff are brilliant. I stayed with friends on this occasion but looking forward to taking my young family in the future. Hugely accommodating, knowledgable and extremely helpful, James and his family are the best hosts you can hope for. Counting down to the next visit

The selling point of this hotel is its staff and hospitality which are first class. It may be a 2 star hotel but service is five stars. James his wife and team are all very pleasant and nothing...

Curry night at the Avalon is not to be missed if you go to Bansko to ski, it was wonderful with a choice of different curries, the balti was the best I have ever had and living in London that is hard to beat. James and Vanya are fantastic hosts and you can beat on prices we have stayed there... More

This is our 3rd year with James, Vanya and team at the Avalon and we will keep coming back. The rooms are basic, but comfortable, clean, warm with plenty of hot water. That fits with the star rating for the hotel. But the rest, as many people comment is all 5 star. James has a wonderful approach with our children... More
