“Absolutely perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2012

The Avondale was the perfect location for our 3 night stay. The beds were very comfortable, it was quiet, even though on a main road in Seaford. The staff were more than accommodating and friendly and the hot breakfasts were fabulous and even included their home made marmalade. We couldn't have been more comfortable and it was terrific value for the money. We'd stay there anytime!

We were going to stay three nights, so glad we didn't. There was no parking and we had to park in the next street. This is more like a nursing home than a Bed & Breakfast. On arrival we were met with a friendly greeting and went up the two flights of stairs to our attic room. There is a stair lift up both flights making it quite difficult to get up there past this, if we had had a bigger case it would have been impossible.

Our room was quite small, but clean and tidy with bottles of water, tea coffee etc, however on inspecting the en-suite shower room, the shower tray had mould growing around it, there was an odd white tile which had been used to replace a missing one of the original colour.

The toilet was set in a sloped corner, which almost made it impossible for an average sized male to stand and have a pee, you almost had to limbo to use it, in fact a tall chap would have to stand in the shower to use it.

We didn't stay for breakfast as we had to leave early, but compared to the premier Inn along the road in Newhaven, it is not good value for money.

The couple running The Avondale seemed friendly and kindly printed a copy of a local Restaurant menu for us, but I don't think that we would stay again.

Room Tip: Don't accept an attic room

Stayed at The Avondale earlier this Summer for a night as I was visiting a friend in the area. I found the owners friendly and helpful, the room was nice and clean and comfy with good facilities, the only little niggle would be that the TV in the room was small and had no freeview, which could be sorted for very little expenditure.

The breakfast service was good and was very tasty

Overall 9/10, would recommend.

I have just returned from a 2 night stay at The Avondale, Seaford. I can certainly recommend this family run guest house. Our rooms were spotless (our party had 4 rooms) Lovely big fluffy towels, plenty of complimentary tea, coffee and bathroom products. Comfy and clean bedding with brilliant pillows (dodgy ones can spoil a whole trip!!) Exceptional value for money and choice of rooms for all parties or occasions. Customer service above and beyond anything I have experienced in recent years, a great balance between friendly personal service and no intrusion.
Check their website as the pictures are a true representation of what is on offer.

Thank you Jane and Martin, I will be back sometime soon I hope

Stayed 2 nights with family taking 3 rooms for a wedding. Owners (Jane) made us very welcome and helped make day special - taking some excellent photos of us all dressed up and presenting us with the photos at breakfast the next day. Rooms good and beds very comfortable. Breakfast excellent - all locally sourced food so fresh, tasty and beautifully prepared. Nothing too much trouble for staff who created right balance between formal and friendly.
