What a fantastic unpretentious hotel. There is no restaurant, breakfast is provided and very accommodating, the views and location are amazing. Feels like nothing is too much trouble, a great hotel!

We stayed at The Kenton September 6th-9th 2011, we loved it.
The room was a little bit dated & a couple of things in the room do need fixing but the room was spacious with high ceilings (beautiful coving) and a huge window overlooking the North Bay :)

We found it very peaceful & restful with a comfy bed (which I don't often find when I'm away from home) and a good, hot shower.
Breakfast was great, lots of choice, filling tasty cooked food and a lovely bright room to eat in.

We were welcomed by Duane when we arrived and were impressed with his open, friendly and relaxed attitude throughout our stay.
He and the staff went out of their way to ask if we were ok / if the room was warm enough / we had enough for breakfast / needed anything at all. They were always happy and smiling when we were around. Nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed for three nights, it was just fantastic. It was in town with good amenities but away from the bustle & amusements. It was warm, comfortable and quiet.
With free, on-site parking! Quite a rare thing I think in Scarborough.

We had a great trip, we would absolutely come back to stay and we would definitely recommend to friends, family and anyone else visiting Scarborough.
You are doing a great job and we wish you all the best :)

Lovely hotel very clean and spacious, nothing was to much trouble for duane and his staff they was very pleasent. We had a family room and it was spacious with sea view ten min walk to center we had lovely weather so went on boat trips for a small cost. my daughter left behind her 3 ds and honest staff handed this in and duane kindley posted this on to us so you can trust the staff if you leave valubles in you room when your out and about in the day. we will def be goin again to the kenton well value for money and honest staff.

This is my home from home. Having Dwane meet you at the door is like meeting up with an old friend, nothing is too much trouble. This was my 6th visit in three years and I would not dream of going anywhere else. My room, as i like to call it, is the same one i ask for each time and it's great, right at the top of the house, with the most fantastic views. The room is very clean as is the bathroom, with everything you require for your chill out time. Its location is ideal for all the sights and sounds of Scarborough, especially the cricket ground, where i while away my days.
