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.

From start to finish our 3 night stay in the Kensington was a pleasure, breakfasts were an absolute delight with the fresh home made cakes a real treat. Nicely situated for the centre and North Bay attractions all within a 10min walk.
