There is nothing wrong with the rooms at present and one by one each room is being refurbished. I see you had issues from your last stay also so i suggest if you dont like staying here then find other accommation in the area as we are doing everything possible to make sure guests have an enjoyable stay. Thank you.

Thank you for your review but I would like to point out that there is no rooms dirty in this property as all rooms are checked by myself daily, If it was dirty like your saying why did you not mention it to me. Every guest that walks through our doors is treated well, Ive actually been told off for being too friendly but thats just my nature with being in the hotel trade for 20 years so this statement is clearly untrue.There is information in the rooms should anyone have any issues to contact me and I am on site 24hours a day. I take pride in my job and running Avalon House, Yes the rooms are in need of an upgrade in which I now have now owners who have started the refurbishment and the 1st room has just opened and the second one is just starting next week. Im sorry that you feel you have had to leave this review without discussing it or mentioning anything to me so I could have sorted anything out.

I have stayed at the Avalon a few times and I can honestly say that although the rooms are tired looking the beds are really clean. The breakfast was very good and the staff could not do enough for me.
