During the three years my Son was at Newcastle University, my family have stayed at a number of hotels in Osbourne Road. Mostly these have been reasonable value for money; none so fabulous to make me want to write a glowing review on TripAdvisor, nor bad enough to prompt a review either . . . Until now. Seven of us...

I recently stayed in a family room in this hotel (Monday - Wednesday) and have some issues regarding the accommodation. On arriving I made my way with my family - wife and two children (6 and 1 yrs old). There was no travel cot in the room so I asked for one to be brought up. After checking in and... More

Stayed at The Kenilworth for one night and found it to be very good value for the money. We arrived one hour before the time we had advised the hotel, so staff were a bit short on the ground as you would expect ( room changeover ). Agree with previous guest on the hot water but the cold shower certainly... More

I agree with another guest's review. A hotel should provide hot water at all times of the day. The proprietor is well aware of this and admits the water is on a timer and cannot cope if other guests use the water before you do. Sorry, but two cold showers in one day just isn't good enough. The room was... More

We chose this hotel because it allowed dogs and so our initial reaction was to forgive the owners our first impression of old chip fat smell and grubby carpets. However.......the bedside lights didn't work; our shower was cold both in the evening and morning; the hair drier was lifeless and to cap it all, our room was directly above a... More

sfh66, Owner at Kenilworth Hotel, responded to this review

We take issue with many points raised in this review: 1.The carpets are barely a year old and are not at all grubby. 2The entrance to the rear of the hotel from the car park passes by our kitchen which, as with all commercial kitchens may have a cooking smell at busy times. Oil is changed at least weekly in... More
