“Good Value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the guest house for 2 nights. The room was adequate but it did have a feel that the room was done on a budget. Breakfast was fine but a few niceties could have been thought of rather than serving orange juice out of the carton!

However, the location was excellent for Leeds Universities and very quiet location. Only 20 mins walk into the city and easy to park the car. The Indian hosts were really friendly and very helpful. Even though I am slightly negative for the quality of the room and breakfast, the price of £50 a night was very reasonable. Nearer to the city centre would have been almost double that!

Our three night stay was excellent. The staff are very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them in making our stay most enjoyable. Our first floor room looked out over the garden, and was well maintained. The breakfasts were excellent. The location was ideal as a base for exploring the surrounding countryside as well as the city itself.

Room Tip: First floor overlooking the garden

I just spent the one night at the Avalon while doing some research at the University library, which is only a short walk away. I had a very nice en suite room, with television and tea/coffee facilities -- a very clean room with a lovely view of the garden, a comfortable bed and toiletries provided. The staff were friendly and efficient, and the cooked breakfast excellent. I slept like a log. I'd definitely stay here again, absolutely no problems and very good value.

Room Tip: Room 2, a nice en suite room on the ground floor, with double bed.

Just returned from 3 nights at the Avalon Guest - and the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Stayed in room 8, nice view double bed and breakfast more than adequate. Cooked breakfast included fruit and yoghart and tea or coffee and juice. Large car park with lots of parking and ideally situated for Leeds City Centre, the University and other places outside of Leeds.

We stayed here as a group of 4 in the family room on the 25th May. The place itself was right where we needed to be - at the back of the university union. Had a very welcoming greeting then was shown to our room. All very clean with tea and coffee facilities, also there were toiletries which we were impressed with. Only downfall was that there wasn't enough plug sockets for us four girls. Breakfast was lovely and served with everything we needed. Very happy with the service and will definitely stay here again. Very good value for money!

We had room 15 which had an ensuite, on Sunday 26th May 2013, I must say we had no complaints, the Guest house, was extremely convenient for Leeds Uni, had offroad parking for guests and was very clean. Our room was very nice, the beds extremely comfortable and the bedding clean and of good quality and nice design, toiletries and towels were provided as was Tea and Coffee making facilites and hairdryer.The breakfast was very nice, we chose the cooked breakfast and it was brought up piping hot and on hot plates as well, I couldn't fault the place. The Propriator and his wife were very helpful and attentive, would definately stay here again, also it was very quiet so we had a marvellous nights sleep

Whenever I go to the UK or Ireland (that is, at least once a year) I always stay in B&Bs or Guest Houses because I've always loved this kind of accommodation: nice food, cosiness... the "British or Irish experience". Hotels are more impersonal and you can find them anywhere.
Well, after staying in Avalong Guest House, I'll beware of GHs for good. I and my friends had a nightmarish experience there:
- the staff could barely speak any English and were cheeky enough to pretend it was us who could not communicate properly. Not too polite.
- the ensuite rooms were tiny, tired, old, damp, and smelled bad
- the bathrooms smelled ever worse,
- we could hear people peeing in the shared toilets from our room
- breakfast was VERY poor quality, and the waiter kept on filling our glasses with orange juice directly from a cheap brik.
- besides, there is no good place to eat nearby.

I would never ever return there, and I'm sorry to say it shattered my blind trust on the B&B experience. Now I'm much more careful about it.
