My husband & I stayed at the Kensington hotel in July, we had a sea view room at the front of the hotel, it was lovely. Huge windows and the sea literally a stones throw away. I woke up in the morning and lay in bed looking at the waves! Really relaxing. Comfortable bed and a large bathroom with a... More

Very nice comfortable room with full amenities - tea/coffee regularly replenished. Bed was comfortable and ensuite spotless.. We were part of a large party who came to dance and though all eating together the food was very good with plenty of choice and pleasant staff to serve us. The bar charges were also very reasonable. The large free secure carpark... More

On arrival found we were booked into a double room, not a single we requested, soon sorted out by efficient receptionist. The room did have a few niggles but once again all sorted by the morning. The hotel itself is rather charming, with some modern touches but some old fashioned areas as well. The service was very good considering the... More

Stayed at this hotel for B&B as we were travelling around Wales. Although most of the clientele were somewhat older than us it was a very pleasant hotel, adequate clean facilities and very friendly staff. Car parking was provided. Breakfast was fine and plentiful. They happily provided a hairdryer on request as I had forgotten mine and were quick to... More

We were not too impressed with the management side of the hotel. We had a few complaints and only one was resolved. The hotel seemed to run on very few staff and some were not very forthcoming. I would like to say though that the food was very good although rather rushed between courses. The hotel itself was very clean... More

Booked room on a Friday night for the Saturday. Very clean and tidy. Staff are very helpful. However it's very bland & old fashioned. There was a real lack of information within the room. Breakfast times, checkout times etc. No real complaints. Breakfast was ok. Not really worth £100 a night.
