“Lovely hotel, warm and friendly - super location”
Reviewed 1 August 2009

We stayed at the Kenton for 2 nights and had the nicest time. The hotel is in a great location, right by the beach and not far away from the busier South Bay - caught the open top bus there (runs often there and back) but the walk there was nice too. The owner Duaine is very pleasant and chatty and him and one of his staff Amanda made us feel most welcome. The room we stayed in was so comfy (family room), nice to relax in after a long day walking/sightseeing. Breakfast was yummy and relaxing, made you feel right at home. The hotel bar was nice and a great place to sit at the end of a long day. It is great to find somewhere where you feel relaxed and comfortable the minute you walk in there.I wish we could have stayed longer and we will most certainly go back there.

We stayed in the Kenton as we were going to the cricket just a short hop over the road. The owner Dwain seemed like a friendly guy and introduced himself to us when we checked in. We'd previously had a chuckle at the videos and commentary he'd posted about the hotel on its website, which enabled us to have a look at the place before we booked in.
The Kenton is a large terraced style hotel over several floors and we had a bit of a walk up the stairs to our room (something we got used to that weekend!).
Although not sea-facing, it was spacious enough and possessed a large bay window. It was also clean and the bathroom modern (although we couldn't work out the shower the following morning - doh!).
Our friends were even higher up in what looked like a small-ish attic room, and were less impressed although they did pay less for their stay to be fair.
The Kenton has a nice looking little bar with flat screen TV, although we didn't use it. We also didn't opt for breakfast the following day, so couldn't comment on that.
There is adequate parking at the front of the hotel, we and our friends were both able to park our cars without leaving them on the street.
The location, in North Marine Road, means its just a short walk into the town centre or down a nearby footpath to the North Bay.
In all, the Kenton was good value and we had no complaints. Would be happy to recommend it.
