We stayed in Bansko for 4 days of a week long walking holiday in Bulgaria and the Hotel Avalon was perfect. James and Vanya are excellent hosts and were very helpful in guiding up to good restaurants in the town. James is also very knowledgeable about the hills as he is a walker and a mountain biker. The location is... More

We stayed at the Avalon for a couple of days while on a road trip with our dog. James and Vanya were very welcoming and advised us on great walks in the mountains. The hotel is basic, clean and tidy, good breakfast, home-made sourdough if James is baking, and the bar has the best range of Malt Whiskies in the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in February. What the hotel lacks in stars is more than made up by the hospitality and friendliness of James , Vanya and there staff. Nothing is too much trouble. The food was very good, the curry night was exceptional. Can not recommend this hotel more highly. If you want 5 star luxury this is... More

Booked the Thursday night curry 6 months before arriving, as it is very popular and gets booked up very quickly. And we were not disappointed with the evening and how everything went. We arrived just before the evening started and sat by the bar with a drink before being led to our table. We were sat with other people who... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and had a top floor room with balcony, overlooking the mountains. Hotel is owned and run by James, who is English and his Bulgarian wife Vanya. They were very friendly and were always very helpful as were other members of staff, who always smiled at you! The hotel is quietly situated and is just... More

I stayed in the Hotel Avalon in February for a skiing holiday, in a group of twelve people. The hotel itself was spacious, clean, well heated and had a good breakfast. We also had a nice lunch from the burger menu and stayed in for the curry night, which was outstanding. But it is the service that really makes this... More
