Stayed here for two nights in September 2013. Situated close to all amenities, easy to find. On street parking available. Really warm welcome from the landlady who took really good care of us. Breakfast was absolutely first class and hospitality top drawer. The rooms were comfortable. No hesitation in recommending this a hotel as a great place to stay.

We booked three nights here and from the start were made very welcome by our hosts. Joy showed us to our room and explained how the shower worked. We were asked to choose our breakfast the evening before but, as the list of options was HUGE, this was understandable. The only problem was which option choose. Wow! Everything from full... More

We arrived at our accommodation and was greeted by the owner John who was expecting us and he showed us to our room. John was very warm and friendly and he showed us where everything was and how things worked, which was really helpful. The room was very spacious, as too was the en-suite. They were also extremely clean and... More

Lovely comfortable clean place, superb breakfasts - if you don't wish to have the full English, there are plenty of other choices. The owners, Joy and John, were very friendly. Would definitely stay there again.

This was our third visit to The Kensington and of course it was terrific as always! We had room 1 this time which was very comfortable with a good en suite. Breakfast was amazing as usual and I tried the home made yoghurts this time and it was wonderful. The choice for breakfast is excellent never get anything like it... More

On arrival at the Kensington we were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome. Our room was described as "small" through our online booking. What a pleasant surprise. Light, very clean and not so small. Our hosts were very hospitable and provided us with everything we asked. Importantly we were given parking passes for the length of our stay which... More

Such a lovely place to stay. We were booked in for 2 nights to attend a family wedding and we couldnt have been made more welcome by Joy and John, they were superb hosts. Its evident that they thoroughly enjoy having guests to stay. The room (room 1) was tastefully decorated and the bed nice and comfy, the homemade cookies... More

I can only endorse previous reviews. The Kensington is a fine example of how far traditional seaside B&Bs have progressed. Scrupulously clean and comfortable accommodation together with great attention to detail is complimented by a quality pre-ordered breakfast. Would “scrambled eggs with salmon on toasted muffins” been available a few years ago? They were part of an excellent package. Look... More
