Had room 2 which is immaculate, comfortable bed, brilliant bathroom and shower, lovely home-made cakes and very very quiet. The hosts are second to none and the service and food at breakfast first class. Close to the seafront, shops and other attractions. We would recommend... More

Comfortable beds, good quality bed linen and towels, a tastefully decorated and well appointed room, a quiet location, free wi-fi, and an excellent breakfast - but what made our visit even more special was the genuinely hospitable welcome from the owners, and the way they went the extra mile to make sure our 3-night stay was 100% perfect. Our gluten-free... More

We stayed here (married couple) last night, Saturday 13th December and stayed in room two. This is the featured room on the Kensington's front page on their website. Super large shower and a lovely, comfortable bed. We loved the lights! The TV wasn't a super duper large screen high tech LG or Samsung but was more than adequate for the... More

We visited Scarborough for a friend's birthday do, and stayed at the Kensington for one night. We were impressed by the friendly welcome and fantastic choice of breakfasts, it was everything we hoped for in a B&B.It is convenient for walking into town, and the parking works well.

The B&B is very easy to find and has parking permits to allow parking in the road outside with plenty of space. It accommodated a long car with a rear mounted bike rack with no problem. It is close to the centre (easy walking distance) . Nice clean room , very friendly and helpful owners and an excellent breakfast.

Stayed in the Kensington Guest house with my partner in October. Got parked right outside for free, as advertised. The hotel is on the North side of Scarborough but within walking distance of the high street (c. 10 minutes) and the beach. On arrival we were shown to our room by the owner and made to feel welcome, even down... More
