When booking at short notice and arriving from Brighton, Fiona was very helpful in meeting me and organising the evening meal at short notice. The room was very clean tidy and wanted to stay longer. The kitchen staff were rushed off their feet and worked well. Keep up the good work and will return. Thank you.

I was here for one night only, but found hotel charming, staff very nice, location brilliant. room was basic but clean and bed one of most comfortable i've slept in. Breakfast was very well run. Shower could do with a bit more power.

I'm glad that you found the hotel to be comfortable. I suspect you stayed on the third floor where some of our showers do suffer with a lack of pressure, especially when lots of other showers are being used at the same time and the hotel is full. I'm hoping to be able to replace some of the showers on... More

Stayed for one night only but happy with the experience. Location great, safe and room clean with useful complimentary tea/coffee. Breakfast was good, well organised and with attentive staff. Generally Staff friendly and really very helpful which counts for a lot. Inadvertently locked myself out of my room at 3am and needed to drag personnel out of bed. He responded... More

We booked the Afton for our 25th wedding anniversary and also booked 2 night's accommodation. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Good sized bedroom, excellent food and evening buffet and disco was superb.

I believe you came with Maxfields and of course, I'm very sorry indeed that you had such a terrible time. I do wonder why you didn't complain to your waiting staff who would have been more than happy to help you.

We stayed one night here and were glad it wasn't longer. The room was small, rather outdated, and not very clean (e.g. dusty towel rail and dirty balcony). There was no one at reception when we arrived (despite ringing the bell repeatedly) or when we left which didn't feel very professional or welcoming, although the receptionist was friendly when he...

I sincerely apologise that you found a rail in your room & your balcony to be dusty. We take pride in the hotel being clean. I have spoken to the housekeeper about this. i must also apologise that the receptionist was not available when you required him. I can only think this was co-incidental, since this has never been mentioned... More

Travelled from Bristol and stayed 2 nights at the Afton Hotel, it is a nicely situated hotel right across the road from the Pier. The reception on check in was very good, the room was nice and clean. The evening meal and breakfast was very good. The hotel is not a 5 star hotel but is a very good place... More
