“loved the christmas decorations/ fab home made food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2008

This is a lovely hotel - immaculately clean. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Our little boy loved the christmas decorations. The evening meal is highly recommended - fabulous home made food with small portions of the same meal for children. We loved it!

Combining a professional approach along with first class accommodation, this small Hotel prides itself on a very friendly atmosphere and will endeavour to make your stay in Blackpool a very memorable one.
Location
Located in Blackpool's most central area, this small Hotel is just few yards from the upgraded sea front and leisure options are within easy reach.

Rooms
For a small Hotel the rooms are well-equipped with modern fittings to ensure that guests experience every possible comfort.

Dining Room
The dining room in our opinion the focal point of this small hotel with a wide range of high quality homemade foods offered within this area prepared by Tony and served by Mike. The hotel's small bar is the perfect place to unwind after an hectic day.

There is no question that the Kenley is a very High quality small hotel, which we would recomend to any family or couples.

We stayed at "The Kenley" hotel for 2 nights at the end of October for my Mum's 70th birthday.
When we arrived we were met by Mike who made us feel very welcome with a nice tray of tea and biscuits to warm us up before showing us our rooms.
The rooms are lovely and cosy and everywhere is spottless. The beds were very comfy and the rooms had there own en-suites.
We had read on Tripadvisor that the food was very good but it went beyond our expectations !! Tony is an excellent Chef and his home made fancy cakes are to die for.
On the evening of Mum's birthday Tony and Mike had decorated the dinning room with balloons and banners and they had bought her some flowers and a lovely card, it really made her day, many thanks to you both for making our stay so special.
We will definately be returning again next year and have already recommended it to many friends and family.

Julie and Family.

P.S. Hope you both enjoyed your well deserved holiday in Lanzarote.

Have to agree with all the other reviewers. This is a great hotel, in a great location. There are bus / tram stops at the end of the road and the Pleasure Beach / Sandcastles are within a 5 minte walk. The owners are fantastic and will do what they can to make your holiday enjoyable. The food is excellent and freshly cooked so no-one should leave hungry

wow another great stay at the kenley 4th year in a row says it all. best hotel in blackpool by far. do not know if me writing this is the best idear i have ever had because other people will find out how good the kenley is and i may not get in for future holidays. mike and tony who i now consider my freinds always make me my wife and daughter feel at home as soon has we walk in. very clean rooms food you would not belive better than ramsay,oliver and delia by a golden mile. if you are thinking of staying in blackpool the kenley towers above the rest.

Just back after our 4th year at the hotel.
Tony and Mike welcomed us as usual with a cup of tea.
The bedroom was excellent and had been totally refitted since last year, The whole hotel has been decorated to the highest standard, the lounge area has been extended and again excellent decor.
The meals offered by Tony and MIke are outstanding and should not be missed.
Tony and Mike are brilliant hosts and very friendly they made our stay so enjoyable.
Look forward to seeing you again next year...
