The Kenton
Ranked #141 of 183 Scarborough B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 August 2012

this hotel offers a warm and friendly welcome on arrival to all visitors and for the money we paid you could'nt have asked for better qaulity service than from any other high end hotel in the area, everything about this hotel was perfect and we were happy to have found it, we definitly plan to stay here again but for a longer than just one night , we would be very happy to stay a fornight if we had the chance, the room was more than adequate and very clean throughout, we were a family of four with my two teenage sons who enjoyed the bunkbeds and the view and even they did'nt want to leave and that is saying something comming from them two, it had all the usual amenities and nothing was missing, so overall our family gives the kenton 10 out of 10

Room Tip: my only tip would be a sea view room on the east side but hey there all good

wasn't the best place to stay!!! myself and a friend came to stay for the weekend we booked a room with a shared bathroom when we checked in we asked how many people would be sharing the bathroom and we was told only 2 other people this wasnt the case there was 4 rooms sharing 1 bathroom!!!! the bathroom had rust on the shower and the shower head had limescale on it not very appealing. The first night we went out its a nice walk to the beach and the night life is ok when we came back to the hotel it was late and we made sure we was every quiet as we knew there was children staying here so we did our best to keep our noise down however the next morning at 7am!!! we was woke by children shouting in the corridor followed by their parents not very conciderate to other people after we made the effort to be quiet others did not. the bed was very comfy but the tv could have been angled alittle better so you could watch it laid bed. on day of check out we had to check out by 10 am which wasnt a problem but others who were stayin longer were using the bathroom until 10am and we could not use it til then, when we checked out we asked the owner if it would be possible to leave our luggage while we head into scarborough for the day which wasnt a problem until we had a phone call at 1 o'clock the owner basically told us he needed us to come get our stuff as he was going out and didnt know when he would be back so we then had to rush back to get our stuff which kind of spoilt the day
dont think ill be staying there again unless it was guaranteed to be an improvement!!!!!

The Kenton is a fabulous little place that is perfect for getting around Scarborough.

We arrived to be welcomed by Duane who was great throughout our stay.

We stayed in room 6 which looked out onto North beach which is where we spent a lot of our time due to the good weather. The room was perfect for the 3 of us with a comfortable double bed for my partner and I, and a bunk bed for our 5 year old who loved it so much she gave it a cuddle to say goodbye. The room is en-suite and has a good shower and was nice and clean and had everything that was detailed in the description. Duane also loaned us a hair dryer which we'd left at home.

The TV in the room has a USB port so if you want to watch movies on the tv instead of a laptop at any point then this is another great little thing to have available to you, just don't forget to take the usb out of the back before you leave..unlike this numpty :)

The thing about the Kenton that was nice for us was that it felt comfortable, simple and was in a great location for visiting all the places we wanted to go in Scarborough.

It will be my first port of call if I'm in Scarborough again.


Other little things:
The Chinese restaurant down the road from the Kenton when you go out the back door and turn left is lovely (think it's called kim sang).

North Beach at the front of the hotel is lovely, and if you are lucky to get good weather when you are in town then get a bucket n spade and down to the beach to enjoy.

First impressions....very friendly/helpful owner. On reaching our room (felt a bit like climbing Everest!) on one of the top floors I was struck with how clean it was. We were offered the option of breakfast but opted to eat out so not able to comment on the quality. I stayed with two girlfriends celebrating a birthday so we didn't spend any time in the room really except to sleep and shower but the location was perfect, only a 5 minute walk from the centre and close to a few good pubs, what more could we want. We had a bit of a problem with the shower, it basically fell off the wall and left my friend with a nasty bump/bruise on her leg but that didn't spoil our stay too much. I would certainly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a good clean B&B in a good location.

Great accomodation overlooking the North Shore. A great welcome and nothing too much trouble. We took our 3 year old grandaughter away for the weekend, so hence a family room for us with sea views. Would highly recommend.
