We stayed 3 nights at the Kensington, it is a fantastic bed and breakfast accommodation,John and joy are the perfect hosts nothing too much trouble. The extra touches such as a piece of homemade cake left in your room makes all the difference... The breakfast menu is also excellent with so many alternative choices as well as a full English....

Beautiful guest house, room spacious, well presented and very clean. Breakfast was gorgeous and the hosts couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it.

This is the 2nd time we've stayed here and it still is the best. The breakfast is the best I've had at a guest house - Anywhere. Home made yogurts, scones and bread, fresh fruit salads, followed by your choice of cooked breakfast. The rooms are spotlessly clean. Brand new toasty warm duvets on the bed meant i had to... More

I've stayed here a number of times over the years & have got to know the family. This is far better value than any of the hotels I've stayed at in the area. The owners are friendly & the rooms are spotless & amply supplied with snacks & wall fixed digital TV. The Ham & Cheese Croissants at breakfast are... More

Joy and John were very welcoming without being intrusive and the homemade cake in the room was a lovely touch. The breakfast was the best we have had in Scarborough and I thought it was exceptionally good value. The bedding was a little thin, although spare bedspreads were provided and the temperature of the shower somewhat erratic, otherwise I would... More

We visited last weekend for one night. Our second stay and we the only guests. 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
