Avalon Springs is tucked away in a beautiful valley/gorge just outside the pretty town of Montagu. We chose to stay in a Mountain Chalet and, despite our 'mountain view' being severely tempered by line of sight over the back of the hotel block, the chalet itself was luxurious, comfortable, spacious and equipped with everything you could want for a home from home experience. One of the anticipated highlights was supposed to have been a private jacuzzi on the terrace, which was actually to the side of and below the chalet on an ugly concrete platform and level with the very uninspiring underbuild. This was disappointing and so we didn't use it. However, it turned out that the jacuzzi wasn't necessary as the hot springs themselves were delightful - warmer than taking a bath at home! - and we were happy to simply relax by the pool. We used our discount meal vouchers for a dinner in the restaurant, which was OK but nothing special food-wise, and the room itself was definitely in need of a facelift. Service was attentive and enthusiastic around the resort and there was a warm and genuine welcome when we arrived. The 'spa' offered treatments which were excellent value for money, and the therapists were nice and friendly but, again, the room itself was a bit tired. Overall, we had a rather mixed experience at Avalon, but we did enjoy the chalet and the hot springs, and that was really what it was all about!
