After my parents stayed for a week in 2009 for the first time, they chose to return this year for two weeks and I joined them for their second week. I was made very welcome from the moment I checked in. The hotel is situated in the quiet location of Watergate Bay, just a couple of miles from the hustle...

We arrived at the Kenton, after bailing out of our sub standard hotel in the middle of Newquay, not knowing what to expect. What we found was a breath of fresh air from the hurly, burly, stag and hen night gaudiness of central Newquay. Nestled on top of the hill rising out of the far side of Porth the Kenton...

What can I say about the Kenton Hotel? First impression: what a very narrow drive into the small car park. We didn't want to risk scraping our nice car so opted to park out on the road in front. The reception and downstairs area looked very old fashioned (lots of striped wall paper and old lady flowery patterned carpets) though...

Kenton, Owner at Kenton Hotel, responded to this review

We are always sad to hear that someone has had a disapointing stay with us and take it very personally. As always we must remind everyone that if you are unhappy with anything you must let someone know whilst you are still here so that we can rectify the problem and if necessary move you to a more suitable room...

Upon my arrival at the Kenton Hotel, some hours before the recommended time, I was welcomed with a hearty handshake from the owner and immediately offered a pot of tea and within a few minutes I was registered and in my room. For the evening meal there was home made food on the menu, which proved to be very tasty...

I had the misfortune of staying in this hotel for one night and it was the worst experience ever. The staffs are the most unfriendly group of people and the concept of politeness is something they have never heard of. The rooms are as small as they can be and the showers are the size of cupboards. The TV was...

We stayed at the Kenton over a weekend, from booking to arrival we found them to be very helpful - especially the daughter (I think). However the father was extremely rude not even bothering to speak and for some reason took an instant dis-like to us which was strange. The hotel itself is fine, a little tired in places but...
