I was at avlon beach hotel during Easter break. Based on reviews I chose this hotel for my family. The room I think is too small for family of three. The room was cold .next day when we were out the hearing was switched off, we had to ask them to switch on heating when we returned. On cold days... More

We booked to stay at this hotel (nearly 2 months prior to our stay) for a couple of days over the Easter holiday with a couple of kids who badly needed a break. With just 5 days to go to our stay we were emailed to say that our booking in our apartment (Elaine) had been cancelled, but that we... More

Situated a stone's throw from the quietest part of the Bournemouth coast line in Southbourne, the Avalon never disappoints. Owner and manager Paul has won several awards for hospitality and you can see why. Comfy, well appointed rooms. Friendly, personalised service. The perfect balance between stepping into someone's home and all the privacy you could want. Highly recommended.

Excellent value for money, friendly and clean. Very flexible too. We were delighted with the service and the way we were treated. All very good. We'd certainly book here again. It is close to the sea and excellent sea walks and if you don't want breakfast in the hotel there are some very good cafes on the hight street too.

Although this is a very good B&B my issue is they charge £7 plus service charge for a cooked breakfast. So be warned about this hidden extra. It spoiled for us what but for that would have been a pleasant stay. I think £58.40 per night pp for this is excessive

Safe to say we're regulars here now - Paul and his team are simply brilliant - nothing is too much trouble. Halfway between central Bournemouth and Christchurch, so very peaceful. Good access to beach (5 min walk South) and local shops/restaurants (5 min walk North). Very clean. Very safe. On site parking (but mind the tree when reversing!) If only... More

We had booked elsewhere but it was too awful to stay so went looking. Paul helped us out, provided us with a solution and so we stayed 4 nights in the Avalon. Clean and comfortable. Great staff, good food, easy parking, so why not 5 stars. Sorry but always leave room for improvement. Better internet connection, had two computers and... More

We stayed at Avalon for a long weekend in May - me & my wife and our our 2 girls (2yrs old & 6 months old). Paul, Olga and the staff there could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. We stayed in a family room on the top floor, which was comfortable, clean and had a great shower... More
