I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone looking great service and excellent food. James, the hotel owner, is a tremendous host and a mine of information and useful tips for the resort. The curry nights are not to be missed!

I travelled to Bansko last week with 2 friends and stayed here after one of my friends gave it warm reviews having stayed the year before. I can honestly say our 4 days staying here were great. The room was exactly what we needed and extremely comfortable. The fire was always on and it was lovely to back to after...

Had a wonderful time, thoroughly enjoyed my time. Classy, welcoming environment. James the owner absolutely made the experience, no job is too small, or too large. Had a great time! The walk to the hotel takes only a few minutes from the gondola, and plenty of good eateries nearby. Tom.

The Hotel Avalon is a must for any trip to Bansko and the team are always on hand even if you are not staying on site! Their Curry Nights (Thursday & Friday) are growing in popularity and for good reason the food was superb as always. It was great to meet new people in a very inclusive environment. I always...

Just wanted to take the opportunity to praise the Hotel Avalon, particularly James (the owner-operator-extraordinaire and Pippa (his right-hand woman). They always went out of their way to help and take an interest, faultlessly booking restaurants, drawing maps, advising on the best places for ski hire, skiing and excursions in the evenings, etc. The perfect place to relax and unwind...

For those planning a trip to Bansko, I can't recommend Hotel Avalon enough! From the moment we arrived, James and his team were on hand to help co-ordinate our week and we were immediately made to feel at home in what is an extremely welcoming, warm and comfortable hotel. James has extensive knowledge of the area and was able to...

The hotel is friendly and cosy. James and Vanya do a great job to make you feel like a member of the family. Pippa and Danielle do a great job serving drinks and food efficiently and are happy to just chat. Even the cooks and cleaners will always smile and say hello. The massages are possibly the best priced in...

James and the team made my visit a true delight. It wasn't so much about staying in a hotel, but from the moment I walked in, it felt like being welcomed into a friend's home. The team are on hand to answer questions and offer advice, and it's the little things that often made me smile - a slice of...

This hotel is small and very homely. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Only 10 minutes walk from the ski slopes and even less to the start of the night life. The hotel bar is well stocked and prices are very reasonable. The rooms are simply furnished but comfortable. Breakfast is continental and a good start...
