I enjoyed a lovely stay at The Acton B/B. This is a friendly family run B and B on Western road which is very central. Comfortable bed. Clean room and bathroom lots of towels. Wi-fi available. The cooked breakfast was very good and there were several other continental options. The owners Dom and Una are very friendly and chatted over... More

First time at Acton Lodge (which was easy to find due to the large noticeboard ) and would certainly recommend staying there.Having stayed on Western Road previously we knew what the area was like.On arrival we were shown to our accommodation which was in the annexe and given the code to operate the side gate.The room was large and spacious...

It would seem from reading the positive comments that the Lodge must be paying friends to write good reviews . I wouldn't recommend this lodge to my worst enemy . Staff unhelpful and the manner of the reply's to unhappy customers sums them up in one go . Smell from rooms . Dated decor . More strength from your tears... More

I checked in and went straight up stairs to have... More

Sir I am so sorry that you were stressed even before you arrived at our house. Checkin time is from 4pm for bookng.com guests, of which you were one, but you arrived 3 hours early. The general tone of your review is one of total stress so I feel it would be unfair of me to stress you any further... More

The Acton Lodge was very comfortable. We had a large room to accommodate the three of us. Everything was very clean and inviting. Great full Irish breakfast that is included in the price. Overall, a lovely experience in Cork.

I don't know how anyone could write a review of a facility they never entered, but this bed and breakfast was delightful inside and out! Spacious rooms and very clean bathrooms. There's a lovely courtyard in the back where you can keep your car in a gated area. The atmosphere was awesome, but the kind owners made the experience one... More

The Acton Lodge was one of the best B&B's We encountered on a two week tour of Ireland! We arrived in the later part of the evening, having made same day phone reservations. It was great to have safe, off street parking. Una, our hostess, gave us a warm welcome and graciously provided recommendations and directions for a selection of... More

During an extended tour around Scotland and Ireland, we stayed in a number of B&Bs. Unfortunately, our experience with Acton Lodge left us extremely dissolutioned. Having booked on-line and receiving the appropriate confirmation, we arrived at 3:40pm to find the place locked up. No note on door; I checked emails - no communication. We tried to phone (no reply) and... More

Normally I don't bother to answer reviews as you can see,however, in this case it is necessary to clarify the situation. When you booked on the morning in question, you clearly stated you would be arriving between 4 & 5 pm. You arrived at 3.45pm. The housekeeper that we arranged to be on site to receive your party arrived at... More

Room was right at top of house, very small, expected to hang clothes on a little rail beneath the tv, which was very dated and had no remote. Bathroom was tiny and the only light was a shaving light, so if you ventured in the shower it was dark, which incidently was placed in a little alcove right next to... More
