Myself and my daughter and of course molly our puppy returned again this weekend to the Afton Hotel. Central to the pier,The open top bus tour and much more. We had a balcony room and as before the bedroom was spotless as were the beautiful linen and towels. Will be returning for our regular break next year.

We held our wedding reception here in July and have to say Jason and his team played a big part in making our day so special. Nothing was too much trouble for Jason and the food and service provided was excellent. Family who stayed in the hotel over the weekend only had very positive comments about their experience and I...

Can't believe this hotel is only a 2* Excellent location near the seafront. Meals consist of 3 courses and are served promptly, very tasty options including vegetarian ( smashing nut roast ) Rooms clean and well serviced, staff courteous and friendly. Will certainly visit again.

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

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.
