Visited for a weekend with friends, pricey apartments but in line with the rest of Newcastle, excellent location. Apartment I was in could do with a refit, ripped wallpaper stains etc. For the money paid (and booked in advance) was expecting a bit more. Staff friendly, would recommend just needs a spruse.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us, we are in the process of redecorating the apartments unfortunately not all the guests treat the apartments as they should. We are hoping all the apartments will have been spruced up within the next few weeks. Kind regards Gillian Hall General Manager More

We choose to stay at the Kensington Apartments, Newcastle for my sisters birthday and we couldn't have made a better choice. We booked two apartments, one 2 bedroom apartment and one 1 bedroom apartment. The apartments were both simply stunning, there was nothing to fault in either, we had everything we could possibly need. We drove up to Newcastle and... More

We are delighted to have found this place to stay when we visit Newcastle. Great space for a family of 5, comfortable beds and nice bathrooms with lovely towels! Staff were always pleasant and helpful and the location means you are an easy walk to good restaurants. Would recommend.

Stayed here for two nights recently and found it a very good choice. The apartment was well equipped and it was very convenient for the purposes of our stay. Very convenient to have cereal,milk etc provided for breakfast. All in all a great place to stay in Newcastle

As a peripatetic worker on the road all the time, living in a hotel is a real bore. You're usually forced to eat out or use a limited kitchenette if you are lucky. So faced with some Monday to Friday stretches in Newcastle when I saw the Kensington House Apartments I just had to give them a go. There are... More

I was celebrating my 26th birthday last weekend, and decided to book a trip to Newcastle with my housemates from university who I have stayed close with since graduating a few years ago. Once I had this idea, I found it surprisingly difficult to find any suitable apartment-based accommodation that catered for 5 people. We wanted to avoid a hotel... More

Great Location for getting out and about in Newcastle. Just off the city centre and opposite a Metro Station. Stylishly decorated with every amenity you would require the Kensington House Aparthotel is definitely a place to stay. There is ample free parking at the front and rear of the Hotel.
