“Perfect location to explore Southwold”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

I stayed here for two nights and found Jo & Vincent to be the perfect hosts,my room was clean comfortable and with a sea view,what more do you need. Breakfast was freshly prepared to order & service was very attentive,I would definitely recommend staying here.

Myself and three hiking buddies stayed at the avondale recently and found it most agreeable. Jo was professionalism personified.
Its true that the decor is swirly carpets and wallpaper but immaculately presented and clean.
I guess in modern times you don't expect a sink and shower in the room but I dont think it detracted overall. Maybe if ee had our wives with us it would be different.
I have to disagree with previous negative comments on the breakfast-it was excellent including fresh grapefruit.
Overall pretty good

Returned to the Avondale for a second stay - once again very welcoming and friendly. Rooms are airy, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious; cooked to order. If you are going to Southwold this is the best place to stay!

Room Tip: Rooms 4 and 5 have excellent sea views.

We really enjoyed our one night stay here while on a walking holiday. The Guest House is very attractive and the room with ensuite was roomy and comfy, and very good value for money. Jo was very pleasant and helpful and she cooks a great breakfast too. Would highly recommend!

Spent the weekend here and this guesthouse surpassed all my expectations. The rooms were very clean and the guesthouse was right by the beach. Jo was fantastic, she readily answered all our questions and made us feel so welcomed. She also makes a great breakfast. I travel a lot and Jo's breakfast was one of the best I ave ever had. I would definitely recommend staying here.

My Husband I stumbled on this by accident , We actually decided to book once we spoke to the lady proprietor warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Although a review states this place is a little dated thats the beauty of the place why change something that's right. It's clean , tidy and the food is excellent coming from the hospitality industry take it from me great little find .
Well done credit where it's due !

Room Tip: Sea view is a nice room

A nice small guest house on the sea fron and if you choose a front room a good view over the sea and to the pier. Breakfast is good and the hosts welcoming. parking on the road may be difficult in season but other times probably OK. easy reach to the town and its Restaurants and the pier is just 5 - 10 minutes walk. The Boardwalk restaurant is very good and at the start of the pier.

Room Tip: Sea views are good but the top floor room has a separate toilet and shower which may not be everybod...
