          Avalon House is a wonderful B&B, one of the best we've ever stayed at (and we've stayed at almost 150 different B&Bs). The advantages of Avalon start with the host, Marina. She is friendly, caring, and very helpful. The room we had was quite spacious...More

          Lovely B&B, large comfortable rooms, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. But what really makes this place special is Marina--a friendly, kind and generous hostess. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choices.

          2nd time at Avalon Would highly recommend. Every aspect spot on and of the highest quality. Highlights include cracking powerful shower ,spacious rooms with modern decor and a breakfast that means you can skip lunch. Thanks Marina and I look forward to staying again.
