“Great all round!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012

My daughter and I stayed one night. I was really pleased with the reception, very nice staff. Very clean throughout. We loved our room with an excellent sea view! Breakfast was lovely. Would definately recommend to anyone who wants a nice peaceful stay in a clean friendly environment.

Thanx Michaela x

Friendly helpful staff - room very clean
bar drinks very reasonable and breakfast delicious

we took note of parking concerns and just waited till 6 when restrictions were removed

Room Tip: Our room -windows did not open - could be a problem in the hot weather

Thank you for your review. I'm very pleased that you enjoyed the hotel. I was concerned to learn that a window didn't open though. It may be that some recent painting in rooms has made it stuck. I'll certainly get the maintenance man to check out the windows and make sure they all open.

A lovely well decorated budget hotel. Only concern during our stay was that the fire extinguisher by the lift on the third floor was out of pressure, in addition to this stairs were not that well sign posted. due to the fire risk in hotels this did concern me.

Everything else was perfect

I'm very sorry that you felt concerned about our fire precautions during your stay with us. I can assure you that we take safety extremely seriously. The fire extinguishers are checked once a month which is recommended. The extinguisher on the 3rd floor has indeed dropped its pressure very slightly but I'm assured by a safety officer I've just spoken to that this would have not affected its efficiency in any way. We also have water extinguishers located in public and bedrooms which are serviced annually. The signage is situated in the recommended places and is illuminated at all times and the back alternative 'escape' stairways are kept clear at all times. Thank you for expressing your concerns and I'm glad that apart from these your stay was enjoyable.

Our stay at the Afton was very welcoming, thanks to a very pleasant group of staff they have there.
Our first stay in a 'dog friendly' hotel which was just that - staff and residents made us feel very at home.
I will certainly recommend to others.
Thank you

only an overnight stay. Found the hotel just two minutes from the seafront. Rooms small but very clean and beds very comfortable with lovely cotton sheets. Breakfast was nice and hot. Staff very friendly and helpful. Also parking is a nightmare but the hotel offers an parking ticket at a huge discount. Would recommed this hotel.

Thank you for your review. Having a prominent town position unfortunately means that parking is occasionally difficult. I'm actively trying to arrange for some more spaces near the hotel that can use the parking vouchers that we use for guests.
