Had a fabulous stay at the Kensington. Joy & John are perfect hosts, the room was very comfortable & although the smallest, it was still well equipped with everything needed. With a very varied & delicious breakfast menu, it caters for all tastes. Highly recommended, we will certainly stay here again.

Welcoming and comfortable guest house with many extra touches. Brilliant breakfast choice and evening meals. Joy and John go out of their way to make every guest's stay enjoyable. Just a bit of a walk to the beaches and the town centre.

Me and my husband Carl spent our honeymoon here in June 2014, we returned for our 1st Wedding Anniversary. We love the guest house, lovely and clean, breakfasts are delicious and the hosts are always welcoming. Another bonus is the cakes that are freshly baked on the premises.
