Ok...so I really stressed over where to stay, almost everyplace had some negative reviews. We were VERY happy we splurged here.
Almost all the rooms in every hotel in Avalon are small. The village is compact and charming.
We loved our room, the sound of the fountain in the courtyard was delightful to go to sleep to. We had one of the less expensive rooms and were perfectly happy with the courtyard/village view. The staff was very nice and helpful, assisted us selecting tours.
The place is clean, and the public spaces have a lot of charm. Cute details everywhere make the hotel feel special.
Location is really important since you will walk a lot, and the Avalon location is really ideal.
So charm, perfect location, nice people.
For some it may feel like close quarters, I was fine with it.
The setting for breakfast is divvied, but the food was only ok. Not up to the quality of every other aspect. Granola and boiled eggs are fine, but the rest was generic, The bread and baked goods could really use an upgrade. But seriously, with that setting, you will still be happy.
