Stayed here one night on tour. Hotel is clean and quiet. Restaurant food was very good. Wifi at hotel was unsecured so a little iffy and power sockets were slow. Hotel supplied extra adapter plugs if needed. All in all a nice place to stay.

Our family of five stayed for three days in a family room and we had a fantastic time. We arrived late and ordered room service sandwiches which were delicious and set our stay off on the right tracks. Acton's is one of the best hotels I've been to. Fab rooms, really helpful staff, great leisure centre, tasty food, central location....

Stayed 3 nights mid April for the Wedding of the Year. Everything was just perfect from check-in to check-out. Staff were extremely friendly in all parts of the Hotel. We were so impressed by their kind and thoughtful hospitality. After checking in, we were offered the chance to move to a room facing the Marina. The room (101) was spacious,...

First, the hotel is lovely. Our room overlooked the harbor and was clean and well-appointed, but both it and our bathroom were very small compared to other places we've stayed on this trip. The biggest negative is the parking or lack there of. They have lots of space, but they host many events and corporate functions, and nothing is reserved...

Stayed here as a last minute decision to spend night in kinsale. Very welcoming reception and parking close to door. Had a lovely view overlooking harbour and so woke up to the pleasant sight of the masts in the breeze. Great buzz at breakfast. Place packed.
