Dear Eileen, I'm so glad you and your friends enjoyed your time staying with us. You are quite right to 'tip' others that they should let us know their preferences so that we can give the best service possible. More

Spent a few days at the Afton Hotel and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Good bedroom overlooking the pier and the sea. Good breakfast and dinner with a good variety of food. Rare to find acceptable ale in a hotel bar and pleased to find Harveys, brewed at nearby Lewes. Hope to visit the Afton again.

Dear Rosemary, Many thanks for your very helpful review. You are quite right, we've tried to be more 'disabled friendly' but being a listed building we have restrictions. But as you say, staff will always help people as much as they can. By the way, if you wanted a lie-in, breakfast is served up until 9am on a weekday and... More

We came to Eastbourne to attend a special party event and needed to find accommodation for the night. We couldn't have chosen a cleaner hotel and the location opposite the pier is so convenient. The staff were really friendly and helpful and we even met the owners! The breakfast was lovely, particularly the bacon.

Having stayed at the Afton over many years for conference social weekends it never fails to live up to expectations and has been updated over the years. As most of our party (of 70 +) are visually impaired the staff are always extremely helpful. Situated almost opposite the pier it is in an ideal location and is open to non-residents.... More
