Myself. Husband and 2 children arrived here for our 1st trip to scarbrough. This hotel is opposite the beach and a cracking view of scarbrough castle so that is a bonus. Only a short walk to peasholm park and the main street of scarbrough. It was nice and quiet. On arrival we were met with the manager recieved our key,... 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

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

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.
