We have just had 2 nights with Nic and Jenny and it was simply the very best ever. Warm welcome to a delightful luxurious room with lovely views. The bathroom was large, sparklingly clean, with huge fluffy towels. The bed was made with beautiful linen and the drinks tray had the widest possible selection. A fridge provided other drinks and snacks. The breakfast was delightful with fresh fruits and yoghurts, quality cereals, beautifully cooked hot dishes and really fabulous coffee.
For once the web site is perfectly true, no exaggeration a really high standard with every possible extra
Lots to do as well, the perfect centre from which to explore.

Room Tip: There is a room at the back that has a delightful balcony but all the rooms are similarly appointed.

Thanks to Nick and Jenny for a pleasant staying, we were spoiled since we arrived until we left. The level of details everywhere s wonderful and delicate, makes you feel special and at home. Our room called "Tranquility" was spot on, impressively clean and tidy, and nothing less to say about a wonderful breakfast: fresh and plenty and they've even got my favourite jam, lovely music in the background and friendly chats!
What a pity that we jus stayed for one night, though. Looking forward coming back soon. Highly recommend.

Hello Adri, what a pity you could not stay longer but it was great to meet you both. Congratulations on your walk along the canal path from Bath to Devizes. We have lots of walkers and cyclists who come to explore this beautiful area. You have seen so much of the world and stayed in so many places so your lovely comments are really appreciated. We hope you can come again and enjoy more of the attractions in Wiltshire.

If you find yourself needing to or planning to stay anywhere near Devizes then you MUST stay at Avalon Lodge. The rooms are luxurious, the hosts delightful, the atmosphere extremely relaxing and the breakfasts amazing. Added to this the close at hand canal walks together with the many boats and locks make it an all round fabulous retreat.

Room Tip: Spoilt for choice

Thank you for leaving your review and for your comments. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and like so many others found the bed wonderfully comfortable. The hens are continuing to up their output so summer must be on its way!

We have stayed with Nick and Jenny at their former B & B, but this was our first stay at Avalon. As usual, we were made to feel at home straight away, given freshly prepared coffee and biscuits before being shown ro our spacious room. There is plenty to see nearby, and lots of very good restaurants. Breakfasr didn't disappoint: fresh fruit salad, cereals and of course full English breakfast. Highly recommended.

My husband and I had a lovely weekend away staying at the Avalon Lodge.
Great Hosts. Lovely Lodge. Would stay here again if we were in the area.
Hosts recommended we eat at The George and Dragon in Rowde. If you love fish this is the place to eat in the area.

Hello again and many thanks for taking time out to write a review and we appreciate your comments. We were glad we could be of help when another B&B let you down and are delighted that you enjoyed your time here and would come again, lots of our guests do!
As you say the fish restaurant close by is exceedingly good and we are lucky that Devizes and the surrounding area has a number of excellent places to eat, not to mention all the various attractions to visit.

Hi,
It was lovely to meet you and we hope the house hunting has gone well. Thanks for taking the time to review Avalon Lodge and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay, albeit brief. Come the summer the room you had with the balcony will be even better as you can sit with a glass of chilled wine and watch the sun set. Can't wait!
