We stayed in half term in October and it was very good, the staff were helpful and polite, the breakfast was plentiful.children were well treated nothing was too much trouble, would stay again but would have a seaview, the budget room we stayed in had a fan outside and quite noisy.

Wow! The first thing we saw when we pulled up was an entire family being escorted out of the hotel and into the back of a police van, marvellous! Reception staff were friendly, quickly shown to our rooms. Unfortunately there was a horrible smell throughout all of the upstairs corridors. The heating did not appear to be on, but the... More

Staff very friendly and happy to assist. Children were treated well and evening Buffet excellent value though maybe a bit spicy for some. Only criticism... More

We have just returned from a terrible 1 night stay at the Kensington Hotel, thank goodness it was only 1 night. We had paid a ridiculous £162 for a family room as we wanted a last minute break to see the illuminations. We booked a family room and although we were not expecting top standard we did expect our basic... More
