Arrival at the Kenton was a smooth relaxed affair,having 4 floors not advisable for elderly people, the room we had was top floor and the bed was super comfy,the room itself however was badly deigned and the floor was intensely sloped,cold running tap in room splashed everywhere and the TV and amenities shelving caused distraction as wardrobe situated adjacent TV..the...

Thanks for your review and comments. This being an old building we are aware of the sloping floor and hope to have it rectified this winter, the pressure needs to be high on the water to make sure it gets up to that floor but if no-0ne else is using the water it can be a bit strong. We do... More

They seem to have it sussed. Think they've been looking at the hotel inspector. All rooms offer simple accomodation clean white linen with no unnecessary clutter. Decent lg telly with a size suiting the room and reasonable sound. They do breakfast on request but if you choose they promote the cafe over the road with a 10 PC discount. Constructive... More

Thank you so much for your review and comments. I am pleased you appreciated the car park and free wi fi, I will look into getting something to stop the doors banging, thanks for the idea - sometimes such things need pointing out! Look forward to your return trip. Best regards Antonio More

Sorry for the delay in replying to your comments, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay on the whole. Apologies for the confusion over breakfast, the girl did not pass me your number to contact you, the smell of bacon must have been from next door as I did not do any cooked breakfasts the weekend you were there.

Spent 2 nights here towards the end of August 2013. We arrived in the early evening and was greeted by an older woman. We were shown through to reception area in the front room and were made to sign a disclaimer. I held my tongue, which could have so easily have lashed out at that point. We were given our... More

Thank you for your review. I cannot understand why you would want to 'lash out' at being asked to sign in, it is to confirm your name, car reg and point out some things such as no smoking, check out time, etc. In the room description it states how many stairs there are, if you needed help with your suitcase...

We stayed Saturday and Sunday nights at this small, archetypal seaside B and B. Room was large, with bunk beds for children had we brought any with us! Sea view from other side of hotel was stunning and it really couldn't be much closer to the sea. Scarborough is a beautiful town which has clearly had money spent on it.... More

Thank you for your review, I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. I am puzzled about your comment on the sausages because we use a local butcher who provides us with locally sourced produce. Hope to see you again More
