Food, service, room, welcome - all first class. We had tried to book 5 days with Edwards but were unlucky. Not bingo fans but understand some people enjoy it, although it's a shame the players couldn't all sit together around the dance floor and not spread themselves out in the bar area and then 'shush' anyone who tried to talk....

What a great review, thank you. I agree with what you say about the bingo but the arrangements for the game is up to the coach drivers, so I suggest that next time you come, you have a word with him or ask Jason, the manager, to speak to the driver on your behalf. More

The age of the building does show through in places but this is the only downside. The central areas have all been refurbished and the rooms are clean and well serviced. The staff are excellent and their experience and efficiency is that of a much more highly rated hotel.

fiorenzuola, Owner at Afton Hotel, responded to this review

I'm grateful for your review, thank you. The outside of the hotel has just been re-decorated along with many areas inside but the building is indeed old being Victorian. We try to keep it well maintained but it's a never ending task! More

The Afton certainly pulled out all the stops to make our friends wedding a wonderful experience for everyone. Nothing is ever too much trouble-from getting into rooms early to warming up baby formula. Jason and his staff were amazing.

Very enjoyable 5 days at the Afton Hotel as part of an Edward's coach trip. Good accommodation, good food, friendly staff. Entertainment? Well, you can't please everyone. There was a £1-a-drink bar at night. Sadly, the best beer wasn't included - neither was the "Baileys". Thanks to all involved for the break. Would definitely stay there again. david & kath.

Dear David & Kath, I'm very pleased you had a good stay with us. As I'm sure you'll appreciate, the local beer & branded drinks like "'Baileys' cost me far more than £1 so we'd run at a considerable loss to sell these drinks at this price. Ii can assure you that our house spirits etc are of the best... More
