The Kensington House is a great place to stay in Newcastle. Clean, excellent service, good housekeeping and large well equipped apartments. We had a one bedroom, with a neat kitchenette. We were told we had been upgraded so we don't know what the others are like. The only downside is that it's not close to any shops, restaurants or transport. It's not possible to step out and have a meal or pick up some groceries. Other than that we had a marvelous stay.
