Kensington House Aparthotel was the perfect hotel/apartment to relax, unwind and flexibility. I had asked for an earlier check in (For an additional cost) however the staff were very flexible and even helped me with taking luggage to our room. The girls and I really enjoyed our time at the apartments and really made ourselves at home. The apartment came... More

Honestly, it was hard to leave the flat to go out. The kitchen had all we needed. It was quiet or rather suitably sound proofed so no-one complained about our noise. Bathroom was comfy, ace. The only complaint I can think of was that we shared with another couple and only one bedroom had a tele so I had to... More

Me and a friend of mine stayed at Kensington house aparthotel from a last minute booking and I must say we must have been very lucky. The apartment was faultless as was the service. Overall it was that good we have made another reservation. Would definitely recommend to others.

We stayed here for my daughter's wedding and it was superb. Lovely apartments, well equipped, comfy beds and friendly service. The milk, butter and orange juice in fridge, croissants in freezer, cereals and jam were unexpected and a lovely surprise. I would recommend to everyone.

These are lovely, clean, stylish apartments with everything you need for a self-catering stay. The staff were very kind and helpful. Highly recommended. The location would be most useful if you needed to be close to the universities but it's still only a 15 minute walk from central Newcastle, and is just across the road from a Metro station if...

The location is perfect for anyone who has business in "the toon" or has kids with digs in Jesmond. The beds were great, both bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate and the availability of 24 hour doormen was very useful. The croissants available in the morning along with the usual kitchen services made this a highly convenient place to stay. Thank... More

Felt the company were expecting trouble from guests as all correspondence lists their rights to throw you out etc and they also ask for a £100 bond (which we didn't pay). Tiny showers and the thickest winter duvets which should have been replaced by summer ones as apartment unbearably hot. Replacement Breakfast and clean towels were not supplied as promised.... More

Thank you for your review, we believe prevention is better than cure, we expect all our guests to behave in a professional friendly manner unfortunately that is not always the case. Some people appreciate it and some don't. If you breakfast/towels had not been replaced all you have to do is contact reception and it would have been sorted out... More

I took my two young sons up to Newcastle for my eldest son's wedding and Kensington House was recommended. I could not have been more pleased! Fabulous staff, friendly and efficient, and the accommodation is beautiful. Very comfortable, superbly equipped and well-placed for access to the City. It was ideal for a short stay, and I'd recommend it to anyone... More

Excellent apartment, helpful and professional staff, have stayed here three times and always been very impressed. Highly recommended! We stayed to visit our daughter who was at Northumbria University and brought older relatives for her graduation recently. Kitchen very well equipped and beds very comfy.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for our daughters graduation in newcastle university. The apartment was very clean and modern, although we were I the basement apartment, so a little dark. The metro station was only two minutes walk from the apartment and was quicker than using a taxi to get to her graduation. The metro goes right into... More
