We have just come home from a week in Bansko over half term. The Hotel Avalon was perfect for us and the friends that we were travelling with, in fact it was the second visit for my husband and children. James and the staff are extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms are great for families, essentially 2...

Went to the Hotel Avalon Curry night held on a Friday. James the Owner is responsible for cooking the most amazing curries. We haven't been for a few years and it was great to see he has expanded his range of delicious curries. Excellent service by the friendly staff and we had a great evening. Thoroughly recommended

We had a great week in Bansko, thanks in large part to James and the staff here. The hotel is amazing value; our group of friends were all really impressed. It was clean, everything just worked, and the bar was super cheap and handy after a day's skiing. The food was also brilliant: the breakfast and afternoon cake and soup...

We stayed at the Hotel Avalon with friends for a week's skiing during February half-term. It's just the perfect place to stay in Bansko. James sorted loads out for us, minibus to take us to the gondola and recommended and booked restaurants. The rooms are perfect for families, with separate rooms for kids and parents, and there's always a roaring...

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone looking great service and excellent food. James, the hotel owner, is a tremendous host and a mine of information and useful tips for the resort. The curry nights are not to be missed!

I travelled to Bansko last week with 2 friends and stayed here after one of my friends gave it warm reviews having stayed the year before. I can honestly say our 4 days staying here were great. The room was exactly what we needed and extremely comfortable. The fire was always on and it was lovely to back to after...

Had a wonderful time, thoroughly enjoyed my time. Classy, welcoming environment. James the owner absolutely made the experience, no job is too small, or too large. Had a great time! The walk to the hotel takes only a few minutes from the gondola, and plenty of good eateries nearby. Tom.

The Hotel Avalon is a must for any trip to Bansko and the team are always on hand even if you are not staying on site! Their Curry Nights (Thursday & Friday) are growing in popularity and for good reason the food was superb as always. It was great to meet new people in a very inclusive environment. I always...

Just wanted to take the opportunity to praise the Hotel Avalon, particularly James (the owner-operator-extraordinaire and Pippa (his right-hand woman). They always went out of their way to help and take an interest, faultlessly booking restaurants, drawing maps, advising on the best places for ski hire, skiing and excursions in the evenings, etc. The perfect place to relax and unwind...

For those planning a trip to Bansko, I can't recommend Hotel Avalon enough! From the moment we arrived, James and his team were on hand to help co-ordinate our week and we were immediately made to feel at home in what is an extremely welcoming, warm and comfortable hotel. James has extensive knowledge of the area and was able to...
