Actons Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We loved this place. Went for Easter with the 3 kids. Price was reasonable for a 3 night stay over Easter holidays. Family room was small but separated into 2 bedrooms which was great. Beds very comfortable. Decor lovely and new. Bathroom also lovely and new, if a little small. No bath only shower which isn’t ideal with a baby, but didn’t actually bother us. Storage in general in the room and the bathroom is poor. But again the comfort of the room and cleanliness and style made up for that Breakfast was amazing. By far one of the best I’ve had in any Irish hotel of all grades. Cooked to order is always better, but here the options were bigger than most you find, even in 5 star hotels. Bar was lovely and comfortable with average prices and good stock of decent whiskeys and gins. Food was good there too and again average prices. Which is good for a busy tourist spot. The pool was great for the kids and well maintained. Finally the staff. Fantastic. So friendly and helpful and really went out of their way to help with anything. We’ll be back

Actons is a friendly hotel nicely situated back from the road with gorgeous views over the harbour. Ideal location for walking to Charles Fort. Large car park. Nice gym/spa. The bed in our room was very comfortable indeed. Room large and spacious with a large modern en-suite bathroom. Wide choices for breakfast, including special gluten-free foods. Would definitely return here.

We got upgraded to a room with a harbour view. Very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was great. Didn’t eat until 5pm later the same day. Only real issue is the carpark which didn’t have enough spaces. Overall, we had a great stay. We will be back.

We went with friends for a midweek break and from check in to check out it was a lovely experience. Friendly and helpful staff, spotless comfortable room with beautiful harbor view, lovely bright lounges and excellent bar staff. Loads of choice of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets and live music in the local pubs. Not our first time to visit and won't be our last!!!

We stayed as a family of 5 that booked a 3 night Easter break last October. We booked a family room that had 2 bedrooms in it . it was absolutely perfect for us. Spotless and the beds are so comfortable and lots of fresh fluffy towels. The hotel has really nice touches like cute baby blankets for the cot and Easter Eggs for the kids on Easter Sunday . The Bar in the hotel has beautiful food from full menu to soup and sandwiches, the quality of the kids menu is excellent and all so fresh. The breakfast is made to order and is better than I have had in 5 star hotels. The leisure centre is just outside the reception of the hotel and the kids loved it! Loads of space in changing areas , again spotless... The biggest attraction to this hotel for me is the staff and the general ambiance. Ger the manager and staff would do anything for you and are so warm and friendly. This is my second time at the hotel and we will definitely be back...

Situated on the pretty harbour and in the centre of the lovely little town of Kinsale. Speedily accessible from Cork Airport and much better than staying in Cork itself. spacious rooms, varied public areas, well kept and comfortable. ACTONS serves a good breakfast and is just a stroll away from other coffee shops, reataurants and Irish bars. Staff were very helpful and friendly.

Lovely hotel very central location with a lovely view of the harbour from our room.breakfast was lovely loads of choice and nice and relaxing.we didn’t dine in the hotel so can’t comment on same but I look forward to returning to sample

Family trip, lovely clean hotel, friendly professional staff, delicious food, beds really comfortable .The showers were hot, swimming pool clean and the kids loved it. It’s located not far from the town Centre. We would recommend .
