We recently stayed in this hotel and it was value for money. The hotel was literally across the road from Eastbourne Pier. The room was clean, the beds were comfy and the people were very friendly. The only reason I gave it 3 stars was because the shower was a bit to be desired, it could have done with a... More

You should have been asked how you would like your eggs cooked at breakfast and of course the shower should have been absolutely spotless. I will certainly be following both these things up and I thank you for pointing these flaws out to me. More

Just been on our annual weekend away, (44 people with Opal Holidays).This year we spent the weekend, Oct.3rd. - October 5th. at this lovely Hotel, situated just across the road from the seafront, and the pier. On arrival we were pleasantly greeted, and a small problem one of my guests had with their room was dealt with immediately. Throughout our... More

I took a party of 30 OAP bowlers to the Afton Hotel for 5 nights at the beginning of September and did not receive a single complaint, which says it all really. Good location, food and rooms as well as entertainment most nights. Jason and his crew were all incredibly helpful and efficient. Overall excellent value for money and I... More

I always rely on Trip Advisor and usually my experience is pretty much the same as other reviewers. This time I must beg to differ. Our first impressions were mixed. The hotel appeared shabby but the receptionist was friendly and helpful. In fact, I cannot fault the staff. We had almost booked at another hotel at a cheaper price but... More

I am so very sorry you had such a disappointing stay with us. A lot of your problem was sheer bad luck which was the 'freshers' disco night at the nightclub on the Pier. As you say, it is held mid-week and is the worst night of the year for disturbance. I have a continuous battle with the management of... More

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.

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.
