As a family who had never been skiing, we were quite nervous, but from the moment we arrived at Avalon until the time we left James, Vanya, Claire and the rest of the staff made us feel completly at home. James is full of advice and tips which made our holiday extra special.
After a day sking we recieved a lovely welcome home and loved chilling in front of the log burner and enjoyed excellent food. On the evenings we ventured out, James reccommended some great local restaurants. The Hotel and holiday exceeded our expectations and we all look forward to returning soon x

Room Tip: Nice family rooms

Fully deserves the 5 stars I'm giving it. James is a top bloke and sorted me and my mates out with tips and hints all week. Turned a good holiday into a great holiday. Highly recommended, excellent service, will be returning next season.

Found this hotel from Trip adavsior, read the reviews and booked the hotel for 4 of us skiing in January.. We were'nt disappointed. James and Vania have been more than helpful with any small or large query, been hospitable amiable hosts and are running a great hotel. Rooms were clean , comfortable and warm.
We didnt eat here apart from the breakfast which is adequate for a days skiing and the bar is always welcoming at the end of the day. James is always happy to recommend places to eat out at night but that can be a bit of a lottery as to what you get!
Avalon is 10 mins walk from the ski gondola but for only a Lev a bus can take you virtually door to door. Try the hotel massage after a days skiing as well - great value.
When skiing in Bansko, why would you want to stay anywhere else!We'd go again.

Have just returned from my 3rd visit to the Avalon, and already looking forward to going back! Always a warm welcome, from James and Vania .. the hotel is comfortable and with excellent food (curry night and roast dinner....really worth staying in for) and hospitality....who could ask for more? Nothing seems to be too much trouble, as long as their guests are happy. Thanks again for a lovely week...wonderful snow and lots of fun!
