Avalon is a very good value for money B&B,extremely well-located with a great view. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast very good in a friendly environment. We would certainly stay there again on our travels.

We had a great stay with Harold at Avalon on Sea! Our host was friendly and helpful, and the room great. Located within walking distance from town, and a gorgeous view! Will stay there again without a doubt.

Nice and neat guest house right next to the sea and very close to the old harbour. We received a friendly reception by Harald the owner. The service we received by Harald and his staff was excellent. Breakfast was very good. We would recommend the guesthouse at any time.

My husband & I were very please with the service and the friendliness of the owners and the staff. A hot breakfast was cooked for each guest and it is not set out buffet style which I enjoyed in the morning.

“We had the top room and front ground floor room both with amazing sea views.”

“We recommend the upstairs room as it has a great view of the sea and has it's own balcony. There is a spiral staircase to the room so may not be suitable for those who struggle with staircases.”
