Stayed here for 2 nights as part of their New Year package and it was a great break. Food good, service from every member of staff was first class, they couldn't do enough for you. Rooms of a good standard, very clean, well appointed and warm. Entertainment on the first night was good, entertainment on New Years Eve was ....not as good but we still had a great time and will definitely do this again!

Room Tip: We had a rear facing room which was small but no problem for a couple of nights in wet December! At...

We stayed at the Kensington for the first time with a large group of people beginning of December. What a lovely hotel, the staff were really friendly with nothing too much trouble. Rooms are basic but very clean and the bathroom of the room that we were in had obviously been refurbished to a really high standard. Food was excellent with a varied choice for each meal (we stayed Friday to Monday). Coffee and cake supplied free of charge each afternoon of our stay was a very nice touch. Entertainment each evening was good although the entertainment room was a little small for the amount of people we still enjoyed ourselves. Large car park at the rear of the property so no problems with parking which we have experienced on previous stays at this time of year in a larger hotel in Llandudno. Once again excellent hotel and we shall be back next year.

Room Tip: We were at the rear of the hotel on the 2nd floor which was really quiet.

Room Tip: All rooms were fine in the hotel as none of our party complained.

We wanted a base in central Llandudno while we visited family. We booked the Kensington because it had a car park and reasonable rates. We didn't have a sea view room as we did not plan to spend much time there, but the room we were allocated on the second floor overlooking the back of the hotel suited us fine. Although small, it had recentlly been completely refurbished- new bathroom fittings (no bath, but good shower), also new curtains and white bedlinen. No complaints about the breakfast either.
We asked about dinner one evening and were told it was served at 6 o'clock- rather too early for us so we gave it a miss, and ate at the excellent Carlo's restaurant round the corner.
My only slight irritation was that on the second day the toiletries , T. bags etc., were not replaced, and as we had not noticed beforehand, did not get a morning cuppa or a satisfactory wash!
On the whole though, the Kensington suited us very well and would be happy to recommend it.I. Close to the town centre, and astroll along the prom from the pier, it ticks a lot of the boxes.

We had a lovely five days at this hotel, it wasn't our first choice, the hotel we wanted was full up that week. it turned out to be a good choice. The Kensington is a nice hotel and we had a lovely 5 days. We had a nice sea view room which had been refurbished. The people who own the hotel were very nice as were the waitresses and bar staff. The food was good but not a great choice but what we had was nice. The entertainment was very good and of course we had the bingo. There was two dance rooms we were in the one down stairs itwas nice and we could have a dance or two while the singers were on.

Room Tip: we could only speak for the room we were in but had a chat to some other guests who said the rooms t...
