Very welcoming hostess. Beautifully decorated rooms and a very spacious bathroom. Large shower easily accessible for my disabled daughter. Location good within walking distance to town centre. Only quibble is that breakfast is a choice of fried items. I would have liked an omelette or scrambled eggs and toast etc.

Hi Dolina, sorry you were disappointed with breakfast. Scrambled eggs on toast is always available, you only had to ask. Hope we see you again soon. Debbie

I stay here frequently when I'm at work in the area. It's quaint, clean and incredibly comfortable. The owners are pleasant and very accommodating! Breakfast smells fab but I'm yet to taste it, I am sure it won't disappoint. Furthermore, it's close to bars, restaurants and the centre. I highly recommend this B&B, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Spent two nights at the Avonlea and enjoyed the experience.Great location close to the town centre attractions.Easy to find with parking at the door and a great breakfast in the morning.Despite being close to the town the place is quiet.Debbie,the owner,is very helpful too which is more than I can say for somewhere else in Banbury.

Though our room was small, and as it was looking onto the road a bit noisy, we thought this was a good B and B. The room was spotlessly clean, shower room very modern with efficient shower, breakfast well cooked and plentiful. Easy to walk into town - just 3 or 4 minutes away. Lots of eating places nearby.

Just back from two lovely nights in this great B & B. Debbie was very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The bed was very comfy and soft bedding. Breakfast was delicious. We would definitely recommend, only 5 minutes walk into Banbury.

Stayed here for two nights for the British Grand Prix weekend. We stayed in the family room, which has a double, a single and a pull out. We were only using the double and the single, it might be a bit cramped if the pull out was in use as well. The room was clean, well furnished and has everything...
