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

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

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
