Lovely guesthouse on seafront, very friendly, lovely room with sea view.it had own toilet which wasn't in the room , was down passageway, but didn't bother me, shower facilities very modern. Maybe rather small as a double but for just me, no problems.i had a wonderful stay and would happily go back again.

Vincent and Jo, the hosts, were very welcoming. The Victorian terrace is right on the sea-front looking out onto the rolling North Sea. It reminded me of old-fashioned guest houses. It was immaculately clean. The rooms are not all ensuite but bathrooms are designated per room. Our room had a shower cubicle in it and a loo in a recess... More

Well situated near pier and short walk to town centre. Jo and Vincent very helpful and very good breakfast. Slightly old fashioned, for example blankets rather than duvet and room 6 quite small, no bedside tables, one tub chair and stool for dressing table. One area contained separate loo and basin and there was a shower in another part of... More

It was quite by chance that we knocked on the door of Avondale Guest House. We had decided to visit Southwold on the spur of the moment and hadn't pre booked. When Jo answered the door, she was so warm and friendly, we were delighted that she had room for us to stay for two nights. That first impression was... More

We enjoyed every aspect of our weekend at Avondale Guest House. Our two rooms were very clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious. Appreciated being by the sea as well as a very short walk away from shops, restaurants etc. Jo and Vincent were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Would recommend.

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.

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... More
