Just got back from an excellent 2 night stay at the Avondale. Carole and her staff were very friendly and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. It's a lovely guest house and there's a choice of 6 delicious breakfasts (I was just said I didn't get to try all of them!)

Stayed at the Avondale for 3 nights, Carole was very friendly and helpful giving us a quick guide on the area while leaving us with some leaflets. The rooms were lovely and very homely. The hotel was very clean, and the facilities very good. Plenty of tea, coffee, hot chocs and biscuits in the room. Bathrooms also were well stocked...

Stayed here for two nights with my mum and Carole was very friendly and her knowledge of area was great. I looked at trip advisor to book a room and was not disappointed one bit. If ever visiting York again this will be my first call. Thanks to Carole and staff for yr warm hospitality :)

Carole, the landlady, is very friendly and runs an excellent B&B. It's walking distance from the train station, she prepares a superior breakfast every day, and thinks in every detail for the guests' comfort. Our room, on the first floor, overlooked Bishopthorpe Rd. It was rather small but spacious enough for two medium build persons, with a good shower and...

Having 4 days to spend in York, I was lucky enough to get a single room at the Avondale Guest House. Though on a busy-looking road, it was very peaceful. I found it perfectly located, within walking distance of all the major sights, and with a Sainsburys 30 seconds away. I loved the breakfast, having porridge, salmon and eggs every...

From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and comfortable. The Breakfast was the best I have ever experienced, lots of choice. Ten minutes walk into the city centre or a tour bus stop over the road. Our visit to York was the first time, but we on managed to visit a few places,...

We just had our third stay at Avondale, and every time Carole greats us like old friends. You couldn't ask for a warmer reception. The location is only a few minutes walk from town (and you have to have a Belgian beer in La Place Verte on your way there and back!) and, although located on a pretty busy road,...

Great Bed & Breakfast in York. Such a warm and helpful host, Carole was brilliant. Extraordinary breakfast incl. the famous whisky-porridge, nice other guests, friendly staff. Thank you Carole for checking traintimes and daytrips. We were so happy we had chosen this B&B. Situated close to the city-center and the train-station you don't need a car. Rooms downstairs more comfortable...

My friend and I stayed with Carole for three nights. She was very welcoming and we were made very comfortable. Guest house is conveniently situated for reaching all York's many attractions on foot. Public transport also passes the door. Lots of leaflets and brochures provided in the room and Carole is a veritable mine of information about York and surroundings....
