My wife and I were on a coach trip organised by Edwards Coaches South Wales along with 16 friends. We arrived on Monday 19th Jan and left on Friday 23rd. Good welcome from Jadon who explained the porterage arrangements. The room was comfortable and whilst we thought at first, quite small, This turned out not to be the case when... More

We got a very cheap winter rate for one night at this hotel and we were very pleased with it. The room, although not huge, was clean and comfortable, with tea and coffee making facilities. We asked for a quietly located room, which we got, with a side view of the sea/pier - very good. The staff were efficient, helpful... More

We have just arrived home after spending Christmas (23rd - 27th) at The Afton. Where do I start? Well, we are a newly retired couple and we took our 96 year old mum with us. We had a double room and although mum was only booked and charged for a single, she was given a twin bedded room all to... More

As hotels go this hotel was extremely comfortable and ideal for easy access to the Sea front. In fact its almost on the front itself and so easy to find. The staff were extremely helpful, especially as my partner is Vegan (not the easiest to please) and the food was of a high standard also. The only real negative is... More

Hi Chris, Thank you for your positive review. I'm very pleased that you managed to have a good time in spite of our parking problems here in Eastbourne. I'd say "watch this space" but it'd just be nice to have more of them (spaces:-)). More

On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by the general manager Steve. Very efficient reception and we were soon in our room 314 with the cases being delivered shortly after by the hotel porter. The room was clean and the toilet shower area also. Surprisingly this olde worldly hotel (adjacent to the pier) was as up to date as... More

Thank you very much for your review and I'm very glad you enjoyed your visit with us. I should just point out that the only time guests are restricted to two drinks at a time is when we are operating a £1 bar. It might have seemed like 90 people if they were anxious to get as many drinks as... More

This is our second visit to the Afton, and we will definitely visit again. We had a wonderful welcome. The place is clean and well maintained, and the food is delicious.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your Turkey & Tinsel holiday with us. I agree that it wasn't ideal to have the charity auction on your 'Christmas' night. It had been a very long standing arrangement. Also, the guests were invited, many of whom said that they had enjoyed it. The only other option was to have the entertainment downstairs but... More

Dear Billy, There is indeed wi-fi in your room, but it has to be connected with a cable. it's a pity you didn't ask about it. The water pressure can indeed be poor on the 3rd floor and I'm actively trying to do something about this. At least one of the 3rd floor rooms is having a new electric shower... More
