Wonderful stay! Excellent selection of food for breakfast. Shower room with great selection of toiletries. Peaceful. No need to carry our luggage up or downstairs. Many extras. Attention to detail. Personal attention.

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...

My husband , son, daughter and I stayed here while my sister in law was in hospital. Carole was so kind to us and even offered to take us to the hospital if we couldn't get a taxi. The accommodation was spotless and cheerful. The breakfasts were 5 star. We have stayed in lots of places in York but none...

Decided to avoid big hotels for a change and stay in a B and B. This was just the ticket. The owner very friendly and knowledgable. And what a choice of breakfast! Superbly cooked to your choice of six options on the 'menu'. A short walk into the City. Definitely recommend.

Great location for a couples holiday in york or business personal looking for an overnight stay. Located 10mins walk from the centre of York and provided us with a parking pass each with the room. Great rooms with modern ensuite facilities however during my stay the shower didn't work but was allowed another to use during my stay. Great breakfast...

Thank you Matthew for taking the time to write a review, we always appreciate the feedback, it is important to help us resolve any problems with the house.

Beautiful quaint guesthouse owned by the lovely lady Carole who couldn't do enough for us. Carole carried our bags in for us, right up to our room at the top of the house, sorted out parking for us & gave us a brief tour guide about the city. Nothing is too much trouble for Carole & the ladies who served...

Really felt at home, nothing seemed too much to do for us and make us feel welcome. The food was excellent,the tourist advice was first rate. I would recommend Avondale to friends wanting a stay in York near the city centre.
