Everything was better than I expected after some of the reviews on here but the woman who serves in the dining room in the morning is vile, no manners extremely rude, apparently she's the owner????? I can't believe how unprofessional she was and would not EVER speak to anyone in that way let alone paying customers!!

The Kensington hotel is fine. I have just returned home after spending 2 nights on a hen weekend. The hotel is geared up for hen/stag parties. After reading reviews on here before I went, I was slightly concerned but it was great..... Yes the rooms are dated, but clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and leave you to get... More

I stayed here in August 2013 as part of a stag weekend. I payed £170 for the whole weekend (including events), so I guess the hotel didn't cost a lot for the two night stay. "Just as well!" I thought, having read some of the previous reviews on here. I certainly arrived feeling a certain amount of trepidation about my... More

very good venue for hen party - - rooms were clean - you have to pay a deposit of £25.00 per person in case of damage!!!! receptionist could do with a little smile on her face and have a bit of personality installed. When you arrive at any hotel a nice greeting is part and parcel of you first impression!!... More

After a weekend staying here I would not recommend this "Hotel" to anyone! The Welcome? What welcome? As soon as we arrived the manageress demanded to know who was in charge! We didn't even get a simple hello or a smile! The whole of our party were just shocked and felt like we had to stay in silence like school... More

Upon arrival, the manageress demanded to know who was in charge, the girl who was in charge hadn't arrived yet, so she took the deposit without a smile, please or thank you which I thought was very basic customer service skills. When the other girls did arrive, she was no where to be found, she finally came up, no apology... More
