This hotel is great VFM. Friendly staff where nothing is too much trouble. A bit dated but very clean and comfortable. Room was warm and clean. Tea and coffee plus hairdryer for my wife. Good hot water for the bath. Very close to pier and all bus stops. Appeared to be no car park but I was offered cheap on... More

Stayed for one Saturday night with my family when we were visiting friends who live in Eastbourne. Sharon the manager is probably the best manageress I've ever come across in all my travels. She gets five stars. However the hotel is very cheap and cheerful. No breakfast available unless you pre order in advance of your stay. The hotel is... More

Good old fashioned seaside hotel. Rooms are clean and well equipped. Good location right opposite the Eastbourne Pier and near to the town. Parking in Eastbourne can be difficult but the hotel gives a street parking voucher for £1.

Just returned from a visit to Eastbourne with Edwards coaches. We stayed at The Afton Hotel which is situated on a corner plot overseeing the beach and promenade, which was just across the road, great location. The hotel is a typical Victorian building with stairs and rooms going off in every direction. We found the room we stayed in, overlooking... More

Visited this hotel for one night, our room was spotlessly clean and the staff at reception were very helpful! The hotel was in a very good location as it was within walking distance of many shops and restaurants! Also was pet friendly which allowed us to bring our two dogs!

Booked to stay at Eastbourne with Edwards Holidays and as soon as we arrived I realised we`d made a mistake. Didn`t realise that the hotel was dog friendly until a woman came walking out of the lift with a large size dog. That fact alone would explain why the carpets look the way they do. Despite requesting a ground floor... More
