“Great Stay”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Four of us stayed here for our daughter's graduation at the beginning of July. The staff at the hotel were so helpful and kind; nothing was too much trouble for them. We would definitely stay there again.

We always choose Kensington House Aparthotel when we bring the children (5 and 8) up to Newcastle. The facilities are superb and the apartments are spacious. We have a far better/more comfortable stay at Kensington with the kids than at other hotels we have been to elsewhere with them.

The location is excellent. The Metro is across the road (but cannot be heard from the apartments) and shopping, eating and drinking, and all the entertainment that Newcastle has to offer are within walking distance.

Staff are very friendly and helpful.

I highly recommend Kensington House.

Kensington House Aparthotel was the perfect hotel/apartment to relax, unwind and flexibility. I had asked for an earlier check in (For an additional cost) however the staff were very flexible and even helped me with taking luggage to our room.

The girls and I really enjoyed our time at the apartments and really made ourselves at home. The apartment came with all the right facilities and even croissants for your breakfast.

Very central and really good value for money, I would consider staying here again

Honestly, it was hard to leave the flat to go out. The kitchen had all we needed. It was quiet or rather suitably sound proofed so no-one complained about our noise. Bathroom was comfy, ace. The only complaint I can think of was that we shared with another couple and only one bedroom had a tele so I had to arm wrestle for that one (I am weak/ no tele). The ceilings are high, it really feels plush/ grand. Treat yourself! Oh, also, lovely neighborhood with plenty of cool places to go out just up the way. You can bar crawl through the neighborhood! Never new Newcastle was this nice. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

Me and a friend of mine stayed at Kensington house aparthotel
from a last minute booking and I must say we must have been very lucky. The apartment was faultless as was the service. Overall it was that good we have made another reservation. Would definitely recommend to others.

We stayed here for my daughter's wedding and it was superb. Lovely apartments, well equipped, comfy beds and friendly service. The milk, butter and orange juice in fridge, croissants in freezer, cereals and jam were unexpected and a lovely surprise. I would recommend to everyone.

Room Tip: There is no lift so ask for lower floor if stairs are a problem.

These are lovely, clean, stylish apartments with everything you need for a self-catering stay. The staff were very kind and helpful. Highly recommended.

The location would be most useful if you needed to be close to the universities but it's still only a 15 minute walk from central Newcastle, and is just across the road from a Metro station if you prefer that. Be aware that the map they will give you is pretty useless - make sure you study a real street map carefully so that you can work out how to walk quickly to where you're going.

Thank you for your lovely review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The maps are supplied by Newcastle and Gateshead Council, they are pretty basic, but can be quite useful.

Hopefully we will see you all again in the future.
