    The staff were courteous and helpful throughout our visit. The room was exceptionally clean particularly the bathroom which is important to us.

    We didn't dislike anything. Rooms could be improved by adding a settee of a couple of easy chairs to sit and watch tv. Also we would have liked the opportunity of having a full english breakfast as we had to go out for breakfast as we don't like continental but this is just a personal preference

    The manager and staff were charming and very helpful. The location was convenient for someone without a car. Bus stop right outside the door.

    We were given a room at the very front of the house. Bright lights from the street and from the property itself shone straight in. There are only flimsy vertical blinds on the windows. The noise from the traffic and from people walking past was very intrusive and did not enhance quality of sleep.The neighbourhood is disgustingly filthy. Bags of rubbish...actually a huge pile was there for the entire week of our stay. It did not belong to our Avala but it was right next door. Litter was unbelievably ugly and everywhere.. Truly a blight on the Wales' suburban landscape and Avala is in that suburb.I Must add staff did offer to change our room but since we had only a couple of nights remaining on our stay...we declined.

    Very clean and staff was amazingly helpful. Great location as well. Easy to find. Free parking was perfect.

    The neighbor house had college kids who partied the whole time and were extremely loud. Did not have a back entrance into parking area so had to lug baggage all the way around to the front of the building to enter. Heat did not turn on until late at night. No fridge or microwave in room.

    The beds were comfortable and clean

    It definitely didn't live up to the 3 star rating. The room was very small but it was clean however, the bathroom was very damp and had a lot of mould and the sink was in the bedroom which is not very hygienic when you have to go to the toilet.

    Clean, tidy, comfortable, courteous service, friendly and knowledgeable regarding local information. Was also not too far from the town centre, which was a reason for booking in the first place. Well positioned.

    no complaints, as such, but the option of a full cooked English breakfast would have been lovely, especially after a night on the town. Only Continental available.
