Fabulous weekend with 66 older people from London. The staff were so accommodating and it felt like home from home. The food was great and varied and the entertainment really good . Excellent value and highly recommend it especially for group holidays. Location ideal.

Enjoyed four nights at Afton hotel in December. Small seafront room overlooking pier (wonderful sunrise over pier). Friendly, helpful staff. Food fine, very tasty soups! The public rooms o.k. But the bedroom decoration was very tired, carpets bare in front of window and the edge of heavy curtains very torn. Windows filthy because of the joys of living by the...

We only stayed overnight and for this purpose it was excellent. The room was clean and inviting. The bathroom was adequate .The Staff were all friendly and helpful. .Breakfast was between 8-9 a.m. which suited us, but could be a problem if an early start was required. I did not ask if this situation could be overcome
