“Cosy and homely”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

I stayed for one night in room number 5. the room was very cosy and the kingsize bed was so very comfortable. The room was spotless as was the en suite toilet / shower. Free fast wifi was included as well as a delicious breakfast and in the room were complimentary filtered water, tea, coffee and biscuits. I chose the English breakfast which was cooked perfectly with my choice of a poached egg. The only criticism was a felt the dining area was a bit chilly first thing in the morning on a cool autumn day. It would have been nicer if it had been warmer. Otherwise a perfect stay and the hosts could not be more friendly and welcoming. I would definitely choose this again and have already recommended it to my friends! Thanks to Clare and Rob for everything!

Room Tip: My room was facing the main road but surprisingly with the window closed i heard nothing from the ro...

We stayed at the Avonlea Guesthouse for 2 nights in November 2012. It's a cosy little place within 5 minutes walking distance from town.

The owners were lovely and really helpful with advice on restaurants to try, local attractions and even suggestions for where to go for fireworks night! They also gave us a booklet of discount vouchers which ended up saving us quite alot of money over the 3 days we were in SUA.

I HAVE to mention the breakfast that was included in the cst of the accomadation. It was HUGE and everything tasted fresh, most importantly me and partner both agreed that the poach eggs were the best we had ever tasted in all the hotels / B&Bs / Guesthouses we have ever stayed in - we'll def be using the chefs tips to recreate these at home!

Thanks for a lovely stay guys - enjoy your time off and trip to Oz!

Room Tip: We opted for the small double as it was the only one available. It was cheaper than the other rooms...

We stayed here at begining of November with another couple. Selected this guest house off of the internet and it was excellent. Safe parking at the back of hotel,left our car there and didnt take it out until we left. Clean rooms and bathrooms all newly decorated,good quality breakfast foods. The hosts were lovely and helpful with ideas about restaurants etc and also money saving vouchers,which are freely available if you know where to find them. Stratford stunning in the crisp bright weather,dont use your car,there is no need,get out walking and soak up the atmosphere

Stayed for two nights over half term at this very comfortable B & B. Clare & Rob were extremely helpful and friendly hosts, providing details of an excellent local restaurant, Essence. We had a king-size room with a very comfortable bed - this room was surprisingly quiet as it was on the ground floor and at the front of the house. Breakfast was excellent having tried both the cooked breakfast and the porridge (which was delicious with syrup!!). We enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again next summer.
