“Wonderful 3 day break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

Just returned from a 3 day girly break with my cousins at the Avondale Guest House. We had the most wonderful time with very clean and comfortable rooms and the most marvellous breakfasts. The owners and staff are so friendly and cannot do enough for you. My sister who is disabled had everything she needed and they even saw that her mobility scooter was recharged. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Found the property was easy to find by following the directions given - even found a car parking space on the road outside. The room was at the top of several flights of stairs and hence the bathroom was abit cramped because of the roof line. Bed was comfortable and complimentary bottles of water provided. TV was a tad small but sufficient. Breakfast was OK but tomatos a bit cold - wasn't given the option of hash browns and/or baked beans the 2nd morning. Was it worth the money - I don't think so! Would I stay again - not sure! The location so good - but having said that you can walk around Seaford in 30 mins anyway.

Room Tip: Back of house is quieter.

Luckily got parked on road. Stairs very narrow and creaky, so noisy at night. our room was right at the top of the house, up 3 flights of stairs, past 2 stairlifts, again making it hard to drag your case past them.

Bed quite comfy, but noisy building. Worst part for me was dark body hair in shower, mould on shower fitting, dark body hair on floor by toilet and dark body hair in sink plug hole!

Breakfast OK, but had to ask to have our order taken.

Sorry, not worth £85.00 per night for double ensuite and would not stay again. Previously stayed at Premier Inn at Newhaven and couldn't fault it. only tried Avondale as could walk to restaurant.

The Avondale is a lovely place in a good location. Lovely rooms, very clean, lots of nice small touches that really make the difference. Very friendly and accommodating owners, good choice of breakfast, good quality and well cooked. Will definitely return.

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!
