“It could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2009

We stayed at Room 7 for two consecutive nights. It's a double en-suite bedroom, of an average size, but apparently with the best sea view out of the 8 rooms in the B&B. The room got pretty bright at around 7am as there were just ordinary (not black out) curtains. The design of the rooms and the B&B in general was pretty dated and also tired-looking, but at least it's clean. The bed was a small double, although with clean sheets, but the bed springs felt as though they were digging into my body - not very comfy, be warned. But since we were quite tired after a whole day of driving and walking, it's not difficult to fall asleep. The heating worked quite well, so it's never cold/chilly in the room. The en-suite came with a weak shower and no toiletries except for hand soap in a dispenser. They offer both continental and full English breakfast. I enjoyed the English breakfast very much! The car park had a limited and awkward space for about 4 cars max, but that would mean 2 of the cars would not be able to move out unless the other 2 cars were out of the way. The B&B owner Elliot was a lovely man and gave us some tips to where to go for sightseeing and meals out. There's a cat and a dog which were kept outside in a little patio area where you can see them in the morning while having breakfast. All in all, Avondale is a very average B&B, nothing "wow" about it.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2008

I have been visiting Newquay on and off since i was 11 in 1975,
My freinds celebrated my 18th birthday in Watergate Bay and loved Newquay -(I nearly drowned surfing at Mawgan Porth!)
The last time i visited the town was in 2001 with my Children during the World Surfing Championships,we stayed at the Victoria Hotel and my daughter Chelsea has never forgotten the Indoor pool!
My girlfriend had never been to Cornwall before so i thought it would be great to see Tolcarne,Fistral and Watergate again.
Thanks to the BBCs "The Baby Borrowers" and ITVs "Echo Beach" giving the Town exposure- she liked what she had seen on TV. As it was her birthday she said "Lets go there then!"
The Avondale was not on Tripadvisor but i took a chance as i couldn't wait to come back "home".
Elliot the proprietor- originally from Brighton is a wonderfull host and his food is great! Accommodation is vintage but tastefully
done and its spotless. We had a great Holiday in February!
