Even though a night at afton was for 90 quid, it was one of the cheapest hotels with good reviews I found near the beach. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Gave us free water since I didn't have change and we're very flexible with check in and check out timing. Really appreciated that. However we felt that the... More

We came to the Afton for our friend Lynns 60th Birthday! we stayed one night in a very pleasant and well situated room, that looked right across to the pier. The party venue was just the right size, and bar staff were very pleasant. The breakfast was very nice and consisted of everything you needed after a good night out.... More

Thank you for your great review. Being in town, the parking can be problematic sometimes but it was worse than usual when you came because of gas works in the street. More

Having enjoyed a Turkey and Tinsel break a couple of years ago and enjoyed it very much we decided to have a short mid week break this month. Had a nice room on 1st floor overlooking the Pier. The room was spacious and comfortable but it takes about 4 minutes for any hot water to come through the shower, it... More

Many thanks for your review & I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I will, of course, point out to the staff to ask guests about gravy, although it's difficult to get things just right for everyone.This is why the menu requests that guests specify personal choices so that we can be as adaptable as possible. It's very... More

My husband and I came to the Afton for Lynne,s 60th birthday party on the 4th July, we didn't stay overnight as there was no rooms left, so stayed just up the road. We travelled down from South Wales and was certainly not disappointed. The party was in a lovely room which was really nice and clean. The staff were... More

For a relatively inexpensive hotel the accommodation and service was very good. Our room on the first floor was located directly looking towards the pier and sea with an accessible balcony (one of only three available). A reasonable size bedroom with built-in wardrobe and drawers: bathroom rather small only the width of the shower cubicle (no bath) and minimal layout... More

I held my 60th birthday party at the Afton Hotel on Saturday 4th July. I couldn't fault it at all. I would like to thank Jason and his staff who went out of their way to make my evening special, nothing was too much trouble. The buffet was great and there was enough for everyone.

Dreadful hotel from the off. Room was falling to bits. Toilet stunk like someone has been smoking in it. There for a friends birthday and the food was not good. Didn't risk having breakfast. Much better hotels to stay at in Eastbourne. Would never recommend or advise people to stay there again!
