Stayed here for one night - it's in a great spot in Jesmond, Newcastle & you can walk everywhere. Cost was £54 for the 2 of us, including the dog, who was welcomed. We also got a superb breakfast as part of this too. We were very happy to stay for a short period, but I wouldn't like to spend... More

Definitely not a 4 star hotel. The bed was reasonably comfortable but the rest of the furniture was awful. The bath towels were tiny and we are by no means big!! We had to change rooms as the first one was full of flies. I will say that this was not a problem. The door to our room looked as... More

Stayed for one night for £50. We were told we could check in at 1pm on our booking confirmation but upon arriving were told it would be at least 2:45pm before we could get in? Not ideal in the pouring rain when you have a baby with you! Room was spacious with big TV on wall but the hotel itself... More

Was very disappointed with this hotel. When we arrived to check in we had to climb over tools to get in the main door, to which we were then told that they were in the middle of renovations. Rooms were small and cramped. Beds were classed as a mattress on the floor. We had no hot water for showers for... More

Disgusting hotel - don't know if you would even class it as a hotel more of a guesthouse! The staff were unbearably rude and unhelpful! The rooms were dirty and musty and very cramped, our shower had no thermostat and all that came out of it was boiling hot water! Would never go back I can't actually believe it is... More

Ideally located, 20min walk to the city. Quite a lot of restaurants nearby as well. The hotel was under going renovation, but there was minimum disruption. Room appeared to be clean, tidy and spacious. On the down side, the TV wouldn't work and the remote was very sticky. During check out, rang the bell at the recaption as there was... More

Dirty, cold and tired reeking of smoke. Who invented the four stars because it doesn't even merit one. Upon arrival no record of my booking even though I had paid upfront although that probably would have a blessing in disguise. My room was grim... Dusty lights didn't work it was dusty and there was looked like an old sick puddle... More

Just returned from a weekend staying at the kenilworth..... I and the 5 other woman I was with absolutely loved it. Staff are friendly willing to help at all times... Rooms so tidy and clean towels every day (NOT all hotels provide this) breakfast was gorgeous full off variety and cooked to order not left Under heat lamps

Valentine's day ruined. £75 to stay in a converted, freezing-cold garage. The Kenilworth is certainly not value for money nor is it sold as advertised! Be aware of the misleading photographs - this hotel is appalling and charges £75 for cancellation even when the rooms are inadequate and not fit for purpose as described on this website. Avoid staying here... More
