    The owners John and Joy were very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast choice was very good and the food was lovely with some homemade touches. Parking near to the guest house was busy, but John moved his own car to allow us to park and gave us a free parking permit. Both the North and South bays were within a 5-10 minute walk. We have booked to return in October!

    We got an incredibly friendly welcome at The Kensington, the room was just what we needed and the breakfasts were fantastic! John and Joy we more than happy to share ideas for places to visit, discount vouchers etc - lovely lovely people.

    The only downside was that we were only there for 2 nights - we could have happily stayed for a week!

    Me and my partner really enjoyed our stay at the hotel, there was nothing to complain about at all. The staff were polite and very helpful, the rooms were immaculate and very moder, the breakfasts were lovely with great selection and loads to eat. You can tell they thought about little touches throughout. Would defiantly go again if I was to go to Scarborough.

    Nothing wrong with hotel, but Booked.net advertised the wrong rooms in their pictures and this has happened to us twice now...

    Good location, good breakfast and nice room.

    Very cold room, the heating was not turned on the whole time we were there. The staff were sometimes unfriendly and failed to help me carry my heavy bags up some steep stairs. We also felt very rushed to check out, verging on being ushured out of the door at 9.30am.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Stayed at the Kensington one night with three friends. Owners very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable. Tea and coffee in room with buns! Lovely home cooked breakfast with plenty of choice and home made jams and scones! A pleasant overnight stay for us and would certainly stay again.
