Stayed here for two nights last weekend, was greeted by Antonio who was very helpful and informative. Room was clean and had spacious, the tea and coffee making facilities was a welcome bonus, easy walking distance to town, Peasholm Park and both North and South Bay. We paid for breakfast on the second day it was delicious and well worth... More

My partner, myself and our 2 young children (aged 3 months and, 2 years) stayed here for 2 nights. First off the hotel was easy to find, about a 20 min walk from the railway station, and the town centre. We were greeted at the door by a lovely smiling lady, who looked genuinely happy to see us, and was... More

At the price paid, my only concerns are: will it be clean, will it be comfortable, and does it include breakfast. The room I had at the Kenton fulfilled the first two but unfortunately didn't include the latter. Great location in Scarborough, gorgeous view from my window of the sea, and as it was such a great day the window... More

Me and my wife was booked this place as part of our birthday presents. We stayed on 17/5/2014. The location is excellent. Near all the North Bay facilities. You can walk into town in 5 mins. Initially the owner was very helpful coming out to help with our parking (as space was very tight). After that however, he gave us... More

I appreciate you taking your time to review your stay with me and will have a look at the lampshade and pillows. Sorry if you were offended by me mentioning that we are non smoking and do not like hot food to be taken into the rooms, it is unfortunate that I have to do this. I do not provide... More

My partner and I stayed at the Kenton way back in July 2012 but I felt that I must come back (once finally signing up for a tripadvisor account) so that I could comment on how happy we both felt here. The room itself was a sea view room and was very spacious and quiet, despite being on the sea... More

Five of us used the hotel after a Saturday walk to Filey. Clean, warm and we were made very welcome. Very comfortable beds and the family rooms were ideal for people sharing. Keep an eye out for the dolphins at sea. Fantastic breakfast. Would book again. D Wilson Wetherby.

We had family room with sea view booked via lateromms.com £70 for 2 nights room only. For the price the room was worth the money, was it perfect? nope, but then you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Kenton is a medium sized guest house in Scarborough. We are located on Scarboroughs North bay with a panoramic view of the bay. We have a car park which is very rare in Scarborough and can be accessed from Queens Parade. The Kenton is constantly being updated and is about to get its exterior re painted. The en suite rooms are very spacious with very modern showers which are also large and spacious. We are only 10 mins walk from the town centre which is close for easy access yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet the north bay has to offer. ... more   less
