Kenilworth has lost its past glory and is no where close to what it was 10 years back . Its location off Theatre road is the only positive . The rooms are old looks worn out and the general feel is that the staffs are laid back . Not friendly and no value for money .

Still this is not the case with the Kenilworth hotel in Kolkata, the hotel is just perfect, with an excellent location therefore many sites can be visited within walking distance. The rooms are really nice, perfectly up-kept (even the walls are well painted and not stained,... More

Stayed on the 27th night at the Kenilworth Kolkata. Hotel has an old world charm and hospitality. The food at the buffet dinner was also great. Loved having dinner under the sky on a hot summer evening.

Well it was a great and comfortable stay over here. The hotel staff was very helpful and co-operative. The food was also very tasty and healthy. The location was also very apt. The hotel can be improved further by having a swimming pool.

Delighted to revisit the Kenilworth after 40 years away. This was the first hotel I stayed in when I commenced my appoiuntment at the Australian Deputy High Commission/Consulate General in 1971. Nothing has changed other than the property - the Kenilworth team as ever, attentive, courteuos, and welcomming.

Great hotel with excellent service, very peaceful even though in the heart of the city. Rooms smallish but comfortable. Shame they won't serve dinner in the garden or terrace as weather was ideal to eat out.
