Me and my wife stayed for three nights and was greeted with a warm welcome made to feel at home straight away. The room we stayed in was really lovely and was very comfortable. The breakfast menu was amazing and tasted just as good with lots of home made yogurts and preserves over all we could not fault anything and... More

We stayed in the Kensington Guest House for 2 nights in mid July with friends and were all very happy with our choice. Joy and John, the proprietors, were very welcoming, helpful and sociable. Rooms were well decorated and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts were wonderful with a hugh choice of food including home-made preserves and yoghurts. The guest house is in... More

Fantastic breakfast , clean rooms , very friendly and helpful hosts. but the location was just too far away from the sea front for us .Our room didn't have a view just onto a yard at the back of the house.

The proprietors, Joy & John, provided us with a very relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy our 4 day long weekend in Scarborough in July. They struck a fine balance, being polite, inviting, helpful, friendly and informative, without being overly so, and just let us get on with enjoying our holiday. Lovely rooms, great breakfasts, good location. Could not have... More

Spent 2 nights as guests of Joy & John. Difficult to think of 2 more helpful or friendly people that we have met on our travels. Excellent choice for breakfast and this was matched by the quality of the food. Modern, clean rooms. As we were there for the cricket the location was ideal, around 5 minutes walk away. Would...

We stayed B and B for two nights in bedroom 2. The room was clean, tidy and well stocked with tea/coffee. For anybody staying longer there is plenty of cupboards/draws etc. The breakfast was amazing, so much to choose from and all so tasty, it really sets you up for the day. As for Joy and John, they were wonderful... More

Spent 2 nights last weekend visiting delightful Scarborough. We visit often but rarely stay but so glad we picked the Kensington. Joy & John were very approachable and did everything to make our stay memorable, whether through homemade cakes and biscuits or the amazingly varied breakfasts....some choices you might only otherwise expect in so called 'top class' hotels. Many thanks... More
