They have only been at Avondale for a few months and are already adding their own touches that made our stay feel special. Unlike other... More

Great place!! Lovely room, comfy bed, tasty breakfast. Really close to town. Pearl and Tony are super friendly - only 10 weeks in but pros already. We hardly noticed it was raining so much :). Can also recommend Merienda restaurant in town.

Ahh thank you for your lovely review. We are so lucky to be so close to such a lovely town, with some great places to eat. Rain is a great part of the lakes, keeping them full and lush, it is just the 'clothing that is wrong at times'. Hopefully you will return and see some of the other things... More

We've been regulars at the Avondale for the past 4 years and always enjoyed coming back year after year. We came back again to find new owners Tony and Pearl who bring their own character to the place. Great breakfast, good local knowledge and nothing seemed too much trouble. We're keen cyclists they happy to help with the bikes. Little... More
