Avalon Hotel
Reviewed 22 March 2012

My boyfriend & I had the pleasure of staying at the lovely Avalon Hotel last weekend.
Great value for money at just £130 for 2 nights including breakfast.
Our double room was clean & cosy with a lovely en suite. Very comfortable bed paired with the quiet location the hotel is situated in provided a very peaceful night sleep.
Breakfast was delightful with lots of choice... the full english was to die for!!
The bar/lounge area very welcoming, good choice of drinks & looks recently decorated.
All staff/owners extremely friendly & service always provided with a smile.
Very short walk to the beautiful Gorleston Beach & close to local shops,pubs & restaurants.
We would definately recommend the Avalon and have already re-booked for the summer.
Thanks for a great weekend :-)

Room Tip: I am sure all rooms are as lovely as the double room we had

Two nights accommodation booked costing £130. Advised on arrival that shower not working properly in our room and could only be activated from a power switch outside the bathroom. Breakfast basic and unappealing. Decor tired and worn. Exterior floodlights left on to shine into our first floor bedroom until 4.30am and therefore hard to sleep. Not recommended.

Room Tip: Don't!!!

I stayed at the avalon with my 3 year old daughter, elderly mother and her friend and the end of January having postponed our original plans to stay just before Christmas due to adverse weather.
My mother is disabled and her friend elderly so Anne & Ray (the owners) gave them a large family room with disabled access wet room on the ground floor which they were very impressed with. I was provided with a first floor family room with double 4 poster bed and a single bed for my 3 year old daughter.
The room was spotless, the bed linen of good quality and fresh, and had everything you needed for a short stay including a partial view of the sea.
The double glazing was very effective and apart from minor noise of a door closing on the neighbouring room, the room was near sound proof.
Having spent a day visiting family and friends and my mother becoming weary from same, we chose to stay in the hotel for the evening and dine there which was pleasant, generous portions at £7 a go which you cannot complain about! Afterwards we retired to the lounge/ bar for a couple of drinks which again were very well priced.
Breakfast was great the next morning and this was followed by a stroll down to the beach (100 metres away down slopes and steps) and a walk along the sea shore.
In summary the Avalon is good value for money, the owners accommodating and good company all for £100 all in- what more can you ask for?
I would stay again (I am quite particular about where I stay by the way!) and have no hesitation reccomending the Avalon- It isnt 5 star luxury hotel but it is a good quality, good value Guest House in my opinion.
