“Fantastic weekend”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Thank you so much to Lyn and Steve for ensuring our weekend was so special. I haven't written a review before when I have stayed away but I have this time because Lyn and Steve were both so genuine and sincere that it made our weekend away so relaxing. We had just wanted a well earned break, a bit of time out and we certainly had that. Our accommodation was clean, well presented, with a homely welcome. Breakfast was second to none, cooked exactly to order and absolutely delicious. Avron house is well situated, only an 8 min walk from Torquay, where there is something to do for everyone, couples and families alike. Thank you Steve and Lyn once again for a great weekend. See you again.....

Room Tip: There was no pool or fitness centre here but that was fine by me. We were so busy we didn't need...

We stayed at Avron House last weekend, using it as a base to attend the wedding of close friends. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The house is spotlessly clean but equally homely. Our room was compact and well furnished with a good sized en suite.

Breakfast is cooked (perfectly - thanks Steve!) to order each morning and there is also a great selection of cereals, yogurts, fruit juices etc.

Both Steve and Lyn were extremely friendly, helpful and offered great knowledge on the area as a whole which was incredibly useful. Avron House is a great base to go and explore a beautiful part of the country - we were only sorry we couldn't stay longer and really take advantage of that fact although we did manage to sneak in a quick visit to the beautiful Anstey's Cove and thoroughly recommend it. We hope to be back again soon to make the most of this little gem.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the smaller rooms to the rear of the property but in fact this turned out to be...

Thank you for your glowing review - it makes all the work worthwhile. As we we have stated before, Avron House is so well situated being between the two contrasting areas of Torquay centre and Babbacombe downs - do you turn right or left when leaving the house? The choice is yours! Hope to see you both again someday.

We recently stayed at Avron House on a visit to a friend who lives in Windsor Road. We chose Avron house because of its location, price and high rating on Booking.com. The rating was well deserved. The room was very clean and contained all we needed plus lovely extra touches. Lyn and Steve are perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble .Our breakfasts were excellent,good choice beautifully cooked. We look forward to returning to Avron House in the future. Thank you Lyn and Steve

Thank you for your super review. We are definitely kept on our toes when it comes to ranking and ratings published by the online travel agents - but that's what it is all about these days and we are very comfortable with that. Future guests need to know what they can expect when coming to Avron House - friendly service, a good nights sleep, a freshly cooked breakfast with lots of choice and, of course, value for money. See you again next time your'e down this way.

Stayed with Lyn and Steve at the Avron recently on a visit to my son. Was made to feel at home and comfortable right from the lift they provided from the train station (a welcome bonus) My room was clean, compact and well equipped with decent sized en-suite. Breakfast was well cooked and presented and there was a good variety, am sometimes a little wary about eating alone but the other guests were moste welcoming. All in all a lovely stay and I will definatley stay again next time I visit my son.
thank you Lyn and Steve

We very much appreciate your review of Avron House. We are always happy to collect our guests from the local train station and run them back - and, even though parking in our road is so easy, leaving the car at home is such a joy sometimes! We also understand that travelling alone can be a bit daunting sometimes so we do introduce guests to each other over breakfast - it can certainly 'break the ice'. Hope to see you again some time in the future.

Need a short break and chose Avron House as the price was quite reasonable and had a high rating on Booking.com. When I arrived I was greated by Lyn and Steve who made me feel quite welcome and gave advice and recommendations on things to do in and around Torquay.
My room was compact and well equiped with an ensuite shower room and everything needed for making tea / coffee and a Tv.
There is a multistory cark in town but I walked into the shopping area which took about 20 minutes.
During my stay anything I asked of Lyn and Steve they were happy to help.
The breakfasts were very well cooked and presented.All the areas of the house I saw were very tidy and spotlessly clean clean.
My stay was very pleasant and I felt very well taken care of and would gladly stay there again.
Thankyou Lyn and Steve

We thank you for your review. As you say, we are perfectly located to explore both Babbacombe and Torquay by foot and we welcome all walkers who take advantage of the beautiful South West Coast Path. At Avron House we believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day so it should satisfy the biggest appetite and see you through until an afternoon snack. So pleased that you all enjoyed your brief stay with us.

We needed a central location for exploring the English Rivera and found the perfect place in Avron House. Lyn and Steve not only offered great hospitality but also provided expert advice on attractions in the area. Each morning Steve served a delicious breakfast that lasted us until midday and beyond. We spent 11 days at Avron House and wished it could have been longer. By the time we had to say goodbye we had become good friends. Whenever we're in the south of England we know we'll stay at this wonderful B&B again.
