We were greeted by the owner on arrival who showed us to our room and then gave us a 5 minute insight into the things worth seeing in and around the city which was very helpful. The breakfast was great with loads of choice. We will definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone.

A group of six of us stayed here for my birthday weekend away - and we loved it. Carol couldn't have been more welcoming - offering us advice on the sights of York. We brought four cars instead of the originally planned three and she accommodating us. Most hotels in the City Centre were expensive, and at least £10 per...

My Sister and I stayed at Avondale (Oct 13th to 17th) and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our Twin Room was located on the top floor and had good view of York and part of the Minster. The room was very spacious and well appointed, with a very modern and well stocked en-suite. The beds were very comfortable and after a days...

This was my third visit to York & to Avondale. Carole is so welcoming and the ensuite rooms are nicely decorated, although the twin room was a little cramped. The breakfast is excellent and the location is a short walk from the city centre - great location for all the attractions. I think anyone would be hard pushed to fine...

The rooms are not huge but spotlessly clean and beautifully presented with a small en-suite.The excellent breakfast is served in the really nice dining room which is light...

We stayed here 2 weeks ago we really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was lovely staff looked after us well. Nice little touches throughout the stay. Nice room only downside was the bed was two singles put together rather than a kingsize mattress. But that was the only thing that we could fault. Everything else was great. We would happily stay...

We couldn't have been more happy with our stay. Carole, the owner, gave us such a warm welcome we felt like part of her family. She helped us carry our bags up the stairs and gave us a great overview of York so we knew all the places we wanted to see before we set of. The 2 rooms we...
