Carole and Mendy are super hosts. They are very friendly and the place felt like home. Breakfast, location, rooms amd service are fantastic! I stayed for two nights, and had the seafood breakfast. Superb place. Hopefully will return if possible.

A lovely B&B with a fantastic choice of breakfast. Great communication with Carole before the visit and friendly staff and very comfortable room. Great location, only short walk to city centre and free parking available. Would definitely stay again.

Great location, only 10 mins walk to old part of the City. Rooms clean. Breakfast very good. Owner Carole was excellent, with lots of great advice of where to go, eat etc. B&B was also excellent value for money.

Stayed in the Avondale for 5 nights while visiting York and only a 10 minute walk into the City. This B&B is one of the best my husband and I have ever been to and is immaculately kept. Run by 2 lovely ladies, Carole the hostess and Wendy who helps. Great selection of breakfasts that are just amazing and set you up for the day. Carole has an amazing knowledge of York and it’s history. She also gave us tasks to complete each day which helped us get the best out of York and we enjoyed the challenge. Doing these challenges meant we saw far more of the City Centre than we ever thought we would. If you enjoy a challenge ask Carole about the Cats you won’t regret it!

Such a warm welcome, and the facilities and the room were spotless. Ideal location for exploring York City Centre (make sure you visit Betty's!), easy walking distance and a lovely city. Free Car Parking very near, so easy to get out and about in Yorkshire as well. The Breakfasts were amazing - All cooked to order, and the quantities keep you going throughout the day. Sausages, Eggs, Bacon, Baked Beans (Heinz),Mushrooms, Tomatoes. Add to that toast, cereal, fruit juice, as much coffee/tea as you want. Carole is so friendly and accommodating - as is Wendy, her assistant. Added to that really comfortable beds and a spotless room and bathroom and you couldn't wish for more If and when we return to York this will be first on our list!

Room Tip: Our room, at the top, was very quiet, but I believe all were. There was no traffic noise...
