We have just got back home from a lovely weekend at the Kensington Hotel. Everything there was just perfect. The room was excellent, the food was amazing and the staff were all friendly and helpful. We brought our two little dogs with us too and this was a real treat, as there are not many hotels that will accept dogs.... More

This hotel was really nice and my only complaint is the room size. It wasn't too much of a problem though as its just somewhere to sleep. Breakfast was lovely and so was the dining area. We stayed 3 nights and on the last morning there was one guy serving breakfast and he was doing an absolutely terrible job of... More

This place is excellent which shows in the amount of awards they've won. Room 15 was quite spacious and we had a bath with a shower. The beach is literally opposite which would make this hotel perfect for summer.

I arrived at the hotel which was nice and easy to find. The customer experience I received was fantastic. It's great to see people enjoying assisting their guests. The room was average, no real issues apart from the pipes made a noise when the next room used the hot water ( I'm a very light sleeper) The breakfast that was... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in family room with wife and young daughter. We had a brilliant stay. The staff were all really friendly and happy to be there. The menu in the restaurant was very varied and full of great choices for a fussy eater like me. All the meals we had were great, hot and plentiful. Overall a... More

My wife and I stayed here for the second time in two years and while the hotel is ok there are frustrating elements that the owner should address to improve the clients stay. Good points are the staff and food, the staff are friendly and helpful and although we only had breakfast this time we have had dinner on a... More

The young man behind the desk was friendly and helpful. Our room was on the third floor. When we entered, we were very surprised as we were expecting a larger room.... More

I needed bed for one night, they had very good price. I checked opinions here and decided to go there. It does not disappoint, nice receptionist, small but nice and clean room, comfortable bed, generally was quiet (I hear just a few voices on the corridor for a while, that's all), clean toilet, free wifi, small car park but I...
