Visited Avondale for two nights over the August bank holiday and was warmly greeted by Jo and Vincent. Room 1 was cosy and comfortable with en suite facilities. Breakfast excellent and very efficiently delivered. Would thoroughly recommend.

We stayed in room 5 which I'd heard was the best room. It was very clean and well presented.. The owner Jo very welcoming and helpful. Stayed 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay, we be back on our anniversary or hopefully sooner.

This is in a lovely location right on the seafront at Southwold - you can fall asleep to the lapping of the waves. Jo and Vincent are the perfect hosts. A warm welcome and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. The beach is directly in front, the splendid pier to the left and to the right a...

We stayed for one night in June and would have been very happy to stay for longer if we'd had the time. A very pleasant welcome from the owners, who were helpful and friendly. Our room overlooked the seafront, was spotlessly clean, a good size and very comfortable. Nice fluffy hand towels and bath towels. The breakfast menu contained plenty...

Stayed for two nights one weekend, we were only going to stay for one but found the B & B very comfortable and the owner very friendly and helpful. Good location on the seafront with only a short walk to the main attractions. Good breakfast in pleasant surroundings. Would definitely stay again when in the area.

We had an absolutely terrific time at Avondale Guest House! We had the lovely room in the front with the bay window overlooking the ocean and there was nothing in the world like waking every morning to that view. So peaceful! Jo and Vincent were also great - they gave us some excellent tips that made our weekend in Southwold...

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights. Decor a little dated, but spotlessly clean.Position on the seafront is perfect, just a short walk in one direction to the pier and in the other direction to the town. Hosts very helpful and friendly. Breakfast excellent. Would definitely use this B&B again and would recommend it.

This is my preferred place to stay when visiting Southwold for a long weekend. The rooms are bright and comfortable, the location fantastic, and the owners could not be nicer or more helpful. Some people may feel it is a little old fashoned, and it possibly is, but int he nicest possible ways. It has everything I look for in...
