Returned to the Avondale for a second stay - once again very welcoming and friendly. Rooms are airy, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious; cooked to order. If you are going to Southwold this is the best place to stay!

We really enjoyed our one night stay here while on a walking holiday. The Guest House is very attractive and the room with ensuite was roomy and comfy, and very good value for money. Jo was very pleasant and helpful and she cooks a great breakfast too. Would highly recommend!

Spent the weekend here and this guesthouse surpassed all my expectations. The rooms were very clean and the guesthouse was right by the beach. Jo was fantastic, she readily answered all our questions and made us feel so welcomed. She also makes a great breakfast. I travel a lot and Jo's breakfast was one of the best I ave ever... More

My Husband I stumbled on this by accident , We actually decided to book once we spoke to the lady proprietor warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Although a review states this place is a little dated thats the beauty of the place why change something that's right. It's clean , tidy and the food is excellent... More

Breakfast is good and the hosts welcoming. parking on the road may be difficult in season but other times probably OK. easy reach to the town and its Restaurants and the pier is just... More

Stayed here April 2013. Very welcoming hosts, excellent service when booking over the phone and at all times during our stay. The Guest House could not be cleaner; bedding was fresh, rooms very cosy and spotlessly clean. Breakfast delicious - perfectly cooked and served in the bright breakfast room. Perfect location for exploring Southwold Town; free parking right outside; shops,... More

The guest house is very friendly but the accommodation is stuck in the 1970's and the breakfast was far from normal standards considering the cost. The room was very small and although I was alone had I had my partner with me it would have been intolerable, the shower in the corner of the room was very unique in todays... More

This place is a total time warp and the attitude of the owner is the same...breakfast 8till9 and the only breakfast option available is the greasy spoon - no yoghurt, no fruit-just rows of Kellogs cereals. The coffee they serve is revolting and on both mornings we were there the bacon was overcooked and the lone sausage was suffering from... More
