Stayed at The Kensington for one night on Sunday evening, we were greeted by the receptionist Emily, she was very polite and checked us in efficiently. We had booked a twin room but were given a family room, which was great! Breakfast the next day was lovely, again we were looked after by Emily - there was a selection of... More

My wife and I have just returned from a two night weekend break (with two of our dogs) at The Kensington Hotel. We stayed here because we could take our dogs, for a small fee, and I have to say it was a super stay. The room was clean and tidy and all the staff were welcoming and helpful. Nothing... More

The room was a superior double and was large and comfortable with a sea view, though I am not sure the advertised four people would sleep comfortably there. It would however be great for 3. The staff were excellent and the food both at breakfast and the one evening meal we had during our stay was great. The Wi-fi was... More

Room: we paid the extra money for a premium room, and I don't really think it was worth it. We did get a side-on view of the sea, but the room was quite dated, a little dusty, and it very noisy in the night - the pipe work in the building rumbled and rattled early every morning, and lets just...

We arrived at The Kensington around midday. We were greeted by a nice lady who informed us the rooms would not be ready until 2pm but we were welcome to stay in the bar area until then if we wished to do so. We ordered some sandwiches for lunch which we had to wait a little while for but they... More

We came and stayed last night, good clean accommodation, pleasant staff, good breakfast with excellent choice. We had booked on the net, but wished we had called in to have a drink previously As we would have realised what a nice hotel this is and would call in for coffee and food next time we are in the area. Another... More

This bed and breakfast was ok, although we didn't manage to spend a lot of time there as we were out all day. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed and the room was of a standard that is to be expected. The only negatives were that the shower had very low pressure and that, during our breakfast, the staff seemed... More

We were booked in for just the one night. We were warmly welcomed and shown to the superior room we had booked. It was very pleasant. Unfortunately, my partner and I both found the bed too soft for our liking. We ate dinner in the dining room, where the mushy peas accompanying my partner's meal failed to materialize. We asked...
