Warm, friendly welcome from the owners and tasty cupcakes in our room on arrival. We had a 'small double' which was indeed quite small but managed to pack in everything we needed! I imagine that other bigger rooms are available. Breakfast in the morning was superb, high quality ingredients used in the full English option and many others available on... More

Returned again to the Kensington and once more enjoyed the lovely warm welcome, comfy bed and immaculate room...with delicious home-made cake each day! Breakfasts surpassed all expectations and the only draw back to staying with Joy and John is that you are likely to gain weight!

John and Joy were very welcoming and generous with their time and homemade cakes! Excellent advice and directions on where to go and what to do in Scarborough during our 3 day stay. The breakfasts were excellent and the alternative choices in addition to the full English made a nice change.

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
