Positive Reviews

Appealing location

By far, one of the most appealing aspects of the Avoncourt B&B is its location. The property, although secluded, is within easy reach of fantastic scenic walks and a good choice of pubs and restaurants. There's a good chance you won't even need your car.

Delicious cooked breakfast

Guests are impressed by the standard of the free cooked breakfast, with reviews suggesting that it offers a cracking start to your day. The fact that is comes included in the room rates is an added bonus.

Welcoming owners

Chris and John, owners and hosts at the Avoncourt, seem to offer a friendly welcome to guests. Plus, the on-going service is attentive and tips and advice on local tours and attractions is forthcoming if you need it.

Negative Reviews

Some disputes over room rates

A few guests mention that, upon arrival at the B&B, they were told they had only paid for one person as opposed to one room. This in effect doubled the price they paid. In some cases, but not all, the cost was waived as a gesture of goodwill. Watch out for this when booking.

Could do with a revamp

A number of guests mention that they felt this property was in need of some TLC. Rooms and common areas, although generally found to be clean, sound like they would benefit from redecoration and new furniture.

Entrance road needs attention

Reviews highlight that the private access road leading up to the Avoncourt is in a poor state of repair with numerous potholes. Guests comment that it is so bad in places that it could potentially damage your car. Drive slowly!
