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 The room was small, rather outdated, and not very clean (e.g. dusty towel rail and dirty balcony).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

Thank you for your kind review. I must apologise that you were disturbed by the youngsters staying here.They were a group of young students from Cairo who had several teachers with them. All the staff, including myself had asked them to be quieter around the hotel and on the whole were reasonably behaved, but on the morning you were disturbed... More

My wife and I held our wedding reception here on the 5th April and I can honestly say everything was perfect.

We stayed at the Afton Hotel after our son and new daughter-in-law's wedding reception which was held in the ballroom. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful from the time we booked in on Saturday. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable, we had an excellent nights sleep. We believe the hotel should have a higher star... More

Hotel staff all friendly and whatever you asked for they helped sort out. It was lovely and clean. Good location for visiting the area. Only drawback was the rooms were quite warm as my room led onto a flat roof felt I couldn't have a the window open far.

fiorenzuola, General Manager at Afton Hotel, responded to this review

Many thanks for your review Jacky but sorry you felt a little too warm. I'm just wondering if you mentioned this at reception? The individual radiators need to be fully turned off in each room. Also, we are very secure at the back with gates that are locked early evening so it would be quite safe to open the window... More

Another enjoyable weekend at the Afton. Jason, Fiona and team did their usual excellent job of looking after us. If you are looking for a hotel well placed for both seafront and town this one fits the bill well.
