Stayed at Avondale a couple of weeks back and I must say I really enjoyed my stay there.
Carole was very friendly and very knowledgeable on historic York. Warm welcome.
She showed me to my room on the top floor. It was nicely decorated with fresh flowers. Excellent and well stocked tea/coffee facilities. Bed was comfortable with ensuite facilities.
Breakfast in the morning was probably one of the best I have had. Choice of various type of breakfast (english, continental, fish, mediterranean, american) was exceptional!!! ...and whiskey porridge was to die for...I love porridge, but this one was soooooooooo good!!! The Ladies serving breakfast were very friendly. Carole was very accommodating by serving it slightly earlier as I had an early bus to catch for a day trip.
Location was great! 5 minutes walk from the city centre and the walls; the Minster; Clifford's Tower; the York Museums, 10 minutes walk to the shambles. Avondale is well located in a street with lots of shops around and a variety of restaurant, fish and chips, Sainsbury's round the corner is very convenient.
To sum up, excellent selections for breakfast, a well-appointed room, fantastic host. Would have no hesitation in returning to the Avondale Guest House and recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in York.
