On arrival staff met us at door and gave us keys, showed us how to open main door but didn't bother to show us to our room. Apart from a few marks, room was clean enough, although few things could do with updating, also few things that could be fixed very easily but not bothered to. Can't comment on food... More

I would give the location and the cleanliness of this B+B a 4* and location a 5*. but due to our experience we felt the over all grading could only be a 2*-3* reasons for this are as follows. Because we were coming up from North Wales which took us 4 hour, we decided to set off early which meant... More

Visited with husband & two kids (aged 7&9) for two nights and would definitely return. The room was immaculate and staff were friendly, even though we arrived late Friday night. There were a lot of stairs to walk up but we didn't mind - it was worth it for a better view. Breakfast is not included but guests get a... More

Stayed at The Kenton for 3 nights for a long weekend exploring Scarborough and Whitby. It was a good location, just a short walk to the beach (beautiful beach!) and a couple of cafes, and also a short walk to Scarborough Castel (visit if you want some stunning views). The hotel manager who met us on arrival was friendly and... More

We stayed at The Kenton for 2 nights with our 2 kids. We booked the family room and arrived way too early to book in. We sat on the patio and Antonio waved us in and let us book in early. He was really lovely. The room was bright and spotlessly clean. The beds were really comfy. The view from... More
