Well situated near pier and short walk to town centre. Jo and Vincent very helpful and very good breakfast. Slightly old fashioned, for example blankets rather than duvet and room 6 quite small, no bedside tables, one tub chair and stool for dressing table. One area contained separate loo and basin and there was a shower in another part of... More

It was quite by chance that we knocked on the door of Avondale Guest House. We had decided to visit Southwold on the spur of the moment and hadn't pre booked. When Jo answered the door, she was so warm and friendly, we were delighted that she had room for us to stay for two nights. That first impression was... More

We enjoyed every aspect of our weekend at Avondale Guest House. Our two rooms were very clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious. Appreciated being by the sea as well as a very short walk away from shops, restaurants etc. Jo and Vincent were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Would recommend.

Visited Avondale for two nights over the August bank holiday and was warmly greeted by Jo and Vincent. Room 1 was cosy and comfortable with en suite facilities. Breakfast excellent and very efficiently delivered. Would thoroughly recommend.

We stayed in room 5 which I'd heard was the best room. It was very clean and well presented.. The owner Jo very welcoming and helpful. Stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay, we be back on our anniversary or hopefully sooner.

This is in a lovely location right on the seafront at Southwold - you can fall asleep to the lapping of the waves. Jo and Vincent are the perfect hosts. A warm welcome and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. The beach is directly in front, the splendid pier to the left and to the right a... More

We stayed for one night in June and would have been very happy to stay for longer if we'd had the time. A very pleasant welcome from the owners, who were helpful and friendly. Our room overlooked the seafront, was spotlessly clean, a good size and very comfortable. Nice fluffy hand towels and bath towels. The breakfast menu contained plenty... More

Stayed for two nights one weekend, we were only going to stay for one but found the B & B very comfortable and the owner very friendly and helpful. Good location on the seafront with only a short walk to the main attractions. Good breakfast in pleasant surroundings. Would definitely stay again when in the area.
