“Lovely stay”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

Just back from a stay at the Kensington-booked for 2 nights but booked another 2 when we arrived.Had a great stay- room was very clean and tidy, very nice en suite- good size.
Breakfasts were just lovely- Johns porridge mmmm. Home made jams and marmalades,bread and home made yogurt too.Joy couldnt have been more helpful, even got me soya milk in specially Homemade biscuits and cakes left in room were just a treat.Wondered what treat we were going to get when we got back each night.
Had a lovely stay and wouldnt hesitate in recommending it to anyone. Hopefully will be back.
Thanks

We stayed at the Kensington over 2 nights. We received a warm welcome by the proprietors. The decor, furnishings & cleanliness were excellent. Our room had everything we required. Lovely touches included a bale of towels tied up with ribbon, homemade biscuits on our refreshment tray on both days. The breakfasts were superb. There were more choices than i have ever been offered at any previous establishment. Again lovely touches ie. homemade speciality bread, homemade jams, lemoncurd & scones. Would definitely stay there again & would high recommend it to anyone.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Kensington, from the moment we arrived we had fantastic hospitality from John and Joy, the room was very clean and the home made cakes each day was a nice touch, the breakfasts were great with a lot of choice, we had an evening meal which was simply superb. Anyone looking for accomodation in Scarborough look no further than the Kensington, You won't be disappointed

Excellent clean friendly place to stay with a great breakfast included. Home made breads, yoghurts and scones all on offer at breakfast along with a large selection of cooked options. Rooms of a good standard with a nice en-suite facility, a nice touch was the free homemade biscuits and cake left with the tea and coffee. We will definitely choose to stay here again when we come to Scarborough. Judy & Martyn

Had a really nice stay at the Kensington, Joy and John go that one step further to make you feel welcome in their home. The bedroom was very tastefully decorated, the food was really nice and a lot of home cooked goodies was passed our way, keep up the good work, i would have no hesitation in reccomending you to our friends/family

Just returned from our second visit to "The Kensington" and was not dissapointed. Everything was super. We had a different room and although I thought the one last year was good, this one was even better!. Breakfast was to die for, as last time! Joy and John make you so welcome and really can't do enough for you. They make you feel like friends rather than clients. Again many thanks to them both for a lovely three nights in their beautiful hotel. Hope to go again later in the year.

Looked at about every B&B and guesthouse in Scarborough before booking at the Kensington. We were not disappointed, it really is as good as it looks and sounds! Easy parking, a very warm welcome and a lovely well looked after guest house. It is within easy walking distance of the beach and also the town with nearby cafes and restaurants if you don't want to go into town. Rooms are lovely and clean, really comfy bed and huge shower, we really enjoyed our stay. Breakfast offers a huge choice and our only problem was deciding what to have, the bacon and egg muffin with hollandaise sauce is even better than it looks in the photo! The extra touches such as homemade cakes in the room and homemade preserves are wonderful!
We will definitely book here again next time we are in Scarborough!
Many thanks for making our stay enjoyable!
