Actons Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location of this hotel cannot be beat if you’re staying in Kinsale. As we were traveling with a child who loves swimming, having a pool next door was also a plus. The night we were there, there was a little truck in the front yard selling drinks, and you can sit at the tables set up on the lawn and enjoy a beer or a cocktail watching people walk by or looking out at the boats. That was a nice touch. The room was decent, but nothing exceptional. I would ask for a harbor view. (We did not and had a bland view of the street behind the hotel, though on the positive side, it was quiet.) Staff, while not overly interactive, were efficient, professional, and helpful. The downside: breakfast. If you stick to the cold stuff, you’re ok, but if you order off the menu, good luck! We walked out with 90% of our breakfasts uneaten—probably a first for me. My Full Irish contained an eggy-like substance that was inedible, and the sausages were not cooked through. My wife’s scrambled “eggs” were identical to mine. We walked out and paid for breakfast down the street. This soured the experience just before we left, but overall it was a decent enough stay.

Its been a few years since i was last in Actons but what a surprise it was i was only in Kinsale to visit a relative and decided to go there for a drink and what a setting the sun was shining the place was buzzing this was a Wednesday and a great athmosphere.We decided to have dinner in the bar service could not have been better with a smile i ordered the steak sandwich medium rare it was lovely but a little do done for me and super chips,the brother had the hake which he really enjoyed.i only saw the ground floor but if the rest of the hotel is as good i certainly would love to spend a weekend there,We will be back

Actons hotel is in a perfect location. Be sure to get a harbour view room. Walking distance to all restaurants, shops and boat trips. The room was very nice. The beds very comfortable. Bathroom well appointed but small. The breakfast was adequate. It's better to be at breakfast early. A nice bar with bar snacks. No evening meal but not necessary with all the great restaurants nearby.

We booked a suite and it was HUGE! The soaking tub in the room was a bonus! The bed and linens were exquisite. This is a great location for exploring this coastal town and the restaurant and bar were terrific!

This was a great place to stay. The location is perfect and a easy walking distance to everything in Kindle. The room was wonderful, clean and very roomy! The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The hotel breakfast was nice. I would go back to this hotel again.

Stayed for one night only and given the hotel was ok but nothing special, I'm glad we moved on to more traditional accommodation elsewhere. Got off to a bad start when reception were not that friendly or helpful, the attitude you get very often in business hotels in London for example.

This is a very nice hotel in a good location with excellent views over the harbor. The staff are great and very efficient. The breakfast is very nice with a wide selection and very good service by the staff. The rooms are a bit small. The hotel, overall, needs a bit of renovating.

Visited actons for 2 nights in June 2019 . Just wanted to thank the staff and management For an Excellent experience , great food, service , atmosphere etc etc . Our room was on The too large size but hard to complain About something like that , room 123. Has two double beds and 1 single , however very little wardrobe space ( no drawers ) to store cloths. Minor point but perhaps something to think about . All in all 10/10

This hotel was our first stop in our tour of southwest Ireland. It’s in a beautiful spot overlooking the harbor and in walking distance of many bars and restaurants. The staff is very friendly, and the rooms are comfortable. We would stay there again.

Lovely Hotel overlooking the harbour and estuary. We had a room with a sea view. Room was spacious comfortable and the beds were very comfortable. Bathroom was a little on the small side .Only downside was fan in the bathroom was very noisy. Breakfast was cooked to order and was superb with all cooked items of a very high standard. The cold buffet was also of a very high stardard . Serving staff were courtious efficient and very attentive.
