As always a great holiday. we go for six weeks a year and can not fault it. The people that seem to run down this guest house down should go to some where that caterers for all there needs and pay for it through the nose. we have a good hearty breakfast sets you up for the day. a laugh... More

As usual a very pleasant stay. The place is spotless and John and Lee are friendly and helpful ,the breakfast is superb . The hotel is situated in a very handy position for the town and major facilities. I would have no qualms in recommending the Kensington to any future clients.

The Kensington was recommended to me by several colleagues who travel to the island frequently. When I looked up the Kensington and saw the photos and tariff, I decided to book. I'm glad I did. John and Annie could not be more accommodating and gracious. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic. One of the better full... More

We received a warm & friendly welcome by a gentleman and we were shown to our room. He informed us "that breakfast is served between 8am & 9am, not a minute earlier or a minute later!" A musty smell and the noise from the street below hit us first. The bathroom was small & dated with a very noisy extractor... More

It might just be me, but as this property has earned a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 2013, my expectations were high even though there are a few negative reviews. At the very least I expected there to be minimal toiletries, instead there was a small bar of Pears soap to go with the sink and the shower. As... More

This was our third visit to the Kensington whilst visiting relatives in St Helier. The location is really good, minutes from all the shops, restaurants and bars in the town. The breakfasts were a good start to the day. Bedrooms comfortable with small wc/shower room separated from room by a sliding door, tv with freeview. Free Wi Fi in conservatory... More

Good location with short walk to main shopping area, bus station, waterfront development and beach. Room was basic but clean and more than adequate. Friendly service and nice breakfast in the morning. Overall a good value guest house, which I would use again.

For the price we paid for 3 nights accommodation we were reasonably happy. Rooms are kept clean. Tea and coffee available in the rooms . The shower was perhaps a little cramped. However you have to compromise otherwise you will pay much higher prices at other establishments .Would be quite happy to book the Kensington on a further visit.

Realistically I would score this a seven out of ten . The staff are super in the morning though it's hard to find someone during the day .The room is quite basic and lacking in luxuries but pleasant enough . Cheap toilet paper, no biscuits with the tea and coffee, no room cleaning on a Sunday .Otherwise fine . Breakfast... More
