We recently had our Covid wedding in Actons; what a beautiful hotel. I cannot even begin to describe how fantastic Ian and all his team are at there job. Ian, in particular did everything to make our day, relaxed, special & “normal”. He really went above and beyond for us, with organising, postponing, re organising, changing dates, times etc. From the get go there was no stress from Ian and all the team in Actons. Our ceremony was decorated beautifully and our reception was perfect even with having to cut numbers. The food was divine, everybody loved it. Due to the dedicated welcoming staff of Actons Hotel all of our guests felt safe with sufficient guidelines being adhered to. We cannot thank Ian & the team enough for making our day so unique. We will be forever grateful. I would recommend Actons hotel to everyone. Thank you again for making our day so personal to us and for making it as incredible as it could be. Warmest wishes. Carol & Patrick Mc Carthy

I mistakenly booked my elderly parents in for a week later than planned, discovered by my Mum the night before they were leaving. Diane could not have been more helpful in changing the booking. What a lovely experience with something that made me feel a bit sick, seeing as it was my parents' 1st trip after lockdown. Thank you Diane!

We stayed here for 2 nights in August. We were very impressed with the Covid19 measures in place - staff all wore masks, one-way systems in place at Reception, bar and dining room. We felt very safe. Breakfasts and dinners were delicious - quality food, beautifully cooked. The bar area is lovely; we felt like we were in a proper pub again! The location is great - overlooking the sea and just a short stroll into the town centre. The rooms, whilst slightly old fashioned, are lovely. The only downside would be the size of the bathroom - it was tiny, with absolutely no storage space. A few shelves and hooks would make a big difference. I also didn't like the fact that there were no doors on the wardrobes. I understand that it's probably a space issue but sliding doors would be a solution. We enjoyed our stay here and will happily return.
