I was treated to a weekend in Actons Hotel for my birthday and what a treat it was too. The hotel is warm and comfortable with all mod cons and a fabulous leisure centre where we went went swimming every morning and had jacuzzi, steam room and sauna too. All made very easy for guests to use free of charge.
Every member of staff we encountered seemed happy and relaxed (I love that in a hotel) and they were all so polite and pleasant to us too especially the breakfast staff who actually gave me a birthday treat (lighted candle in eggs benedict) .
The room we had was facing the harbour (suppilment required) but was a really nice sized room. Comfortable mattress and pilows. Tea and coffee making facilities. Big bathroom but sadly no bath. Everything was spotlessly clean and cleaning staff were quick and polite too.
The hotel is old but the rooms are refurbished to a good spec but our room did have very creaky floorboards as did the room above which was a bit annoying but not enough to spoil it and I would definitely go again.
I should mention the food as it is wonderful, there is a huge selection for breakfast and we ate in one night, is was off the bar menu but they offered to sit us in the restuarant which we did and it was lovely. The menu is unusual and varied , Quite a suprise and the food was scruptious. Would recommend Actons to you all.
