On the evening of the 12 June 2015 I attend my graduation ball at the Afton. I was one of the organiser and can not fault the hotel at all. They were so helpful from the first phone call to enquire about the venue to the point of us stepping out the door at the end. The hotel staff helped... More

My husband and I, together with two other family members, stayed at the Afton Hotel from 25th to 29th May 2015, with Edwards Coaches. Our double room on the 2nd floor was a decent size, clean & tidy, nicely furnished and overlooked the pier. The bathroom was spacious, with a walk-in shower that was easy to use. My only slight...

I'm grateful for your very comprehensive review which sums up the hotel well. I must apologise about the lack of TV remote control which of course should have been replaced immediately. We will look forward to being able to entertain you & your family again in the future. More

Lovely friendly Hotel you would want to visit again and again. Always a warm welcome. The rooms are spotless. Small but more than adequate. Our bedding was changed everyday! Entertainment every night so no need to leave the Hotel. Just pull up a seat and enjoy the evening. A really nice breakfast is served, there is something to please everyone.... More

We had a big family birthday party here and the staff were so helpful and friendly, nothing was too much bother in making it go with a swing. For the price, the rooms were good value and I agree the evening meal was a bit rushed, similar to an earlier comment, but the beds were comfortable and I didn't hear... More

It's great to hear that your party went well & everyone enjoyed themselves. I'm aware that the waiting staff are perhaps a little over enthusiastic to get the meals served quickly & this is being addressed. More

May bank holiday weekend: Greeted by staff who carried our cases to our room, room ready by 13:30pm. Hotel right opposite the pier, 5 mins from the shops - excellent location! Breakfast was a little early 08:00-09:00, could be half hour later, especially after a late night ( this is my only criticism). Restaurant staff so accommodating and nothing was... More

Rooms are very small. And I was very disappointed with the lack of gluten free food choice when I was told before our trip that nothing would be to much trouble there was not any pudding offers really for us and they new that 2 gluten free people were attending the weekend we stayed I work in a kitchen myself...

I've addressed the restaurant issues in my previous comments & am following up with some refreshment training with the restaurant staff. I will also investigate what happened with your lack of choice for gluten free food. There is usually plenty of choice and I apologise that you did not experience this on your visit. More
