Upon our arrival at the Actons Hotel, a large tour bus was parked in front of the hotel. The limited valet staff was totally pre-occupied with unloading the luggage from the bus, so we were on our own. While an elevator is available, there are stairs to navigate once you walk down the hall to gain access to your room.... More

Booked a deluxe room so expectations were high, room was small, lacked drawer space, had just one comfortable chair, bathroom was tiny. Good views over harbour. Generally felt guests were a bit of an inconvenience. Cooked breakfast poor, and dinner not much better - lots of room for improvement, and definitely not value for money.

Just back from a two night stay here. The hotel itself was lovely and really in a great location. Beautiful views of the harbour. We had booked a superior harbour view room. It was a lovely comfortable room, a great big bed and beautiful bathroom and great views but I wouldn't consider it a superior room. The carpets were in... More

After reading some not so good reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. The hotel is old but the rooms were modern and clean, with comfortable beds. The staff were friendly. The location is great - right across the street from the harbor. The parking and gym facility were free. The gym was small but had the basic cardio/lifting equipment... More

Acton's has been transformed into a lovely modern hotel in the heart of Kinsale! We stayed for three nights and enjoyed its bar, breakfast, leisure facilities and food! We'd definitely recommend and delighted to see a nice central hotel!

Last Minute search on TA found this what I would call Old English Style Quality Hotel in an excellent location at the Harbour. Nice Rooms, Good Service, food looked good but didn't partake on this occasion. Could have availed of some great offers if had read the website. Good value Hotel.

Sorry to leave. A classic Hotel that does it all. A two night stay that was so relaxing. A fantastic breakfast buffet with everything-smoked salmon, cheeses, breakfast cooked to order. We didn't eat in the Restaurant but ate bar food both nights, no complaints. Fresh & tasty & served just right. The bar area has lovely lounge style tables, really... More
