“Great accommodation, out of the way location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

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.

Room Tip: We had room 63 which was lovely.

Myself and three other girls stayed here for 3 nights for a birthday weekend. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our whole stay.
The apartment was lovely, exactly what we were looking for, it looks exactly like it does in the pictures. The location isn't central to newcastle, but it's only a short taxi ride away, about 5 minutes, £5 in the taxi.
About a 5/10 minute walk up the street is a selection of shops, bars and restaurants, so if you don't want to get a taxi into newcastle centre there is somewhere to eat/drink close by.
Overall the experience was great and I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here on Saturday 9th of August, the receptionist was very pleasant and helpful. she informed us we had been upgraded which was a lovely surprise. The service is first class here. The apartment has a luxurious feel, complimentary breakfast supplied, It is very spacious, even had a patio area. The bed was really comfy and my husband said its the best shower he's been in. Very handy if you have kids at University staying the Jesmond area. About 15 minutes walk to Newcastle city centre. Plenty of bars and places to eat nearby. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends. You will be given a loyalty card and after nine stays the tenth one is free.

My friends and I stayed on the 8th July for 1 night for a graduation night out. We stayed in a Pelham suite. I missed check in as I arrived late but my friend who checked us in said everything went fine and we didn't need to pay the £100 security deposit as there we're only 3 of us staying in the room.

The room smelt fresh on arrival, bedding was soft, plenty of towels, glasses, dishes etc. The room had a few small wear and tear stains and marks but nothing major and it was clean and presentable.

We had a few drinks and watched the music channels on sky, and headed downstairs at 11pm to go out on the town. The night porter called us a taxi and gave us a little card with the apartment address on incase we got lost or split up which was cute.

Had a comfy nights sleep, decent shower and bath. Checkout was quick and easy, the receptionist was very pleasant and couldn't do enough to help make our stay better, she even put a congratulations balloon in our room for my graduation.


The only minor things that weren't to my taste were the storage spaces, instead of having wardrobes there was a cheap shelving unit which looked a bit odd, a standard wardrobe would have given the room a more luxury feel, but other than that it was absolutely fine.

I would stay again definitely, and I travel a lot to high quality hotels around the globe, and this one is a reasonably priced little gem for an affordable budget luxury stay in the heart of Newcastle :)

Hope this helps for people who are unsure of booking.

Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us, the wardrobes were specially made and expensive, as guests are usually short stay it makes it easy for them and us to check they haven't left anything behind.

Four of us stayed here for our daughter's graduation at the beginning of July. The staff at the hotel were so helpful and kind; nothing was too much trouble for them. We would definitely stay there again.

We always choose Kensington House Aparthotel when we bring the children (5 and 8) up to Newcastle. The facilities are superb and the apartments are spacious. We have a far better/more comfortable stay at Kensington with the kids than at other hotels we have been to elsewhere with them.

The location is excellent. The Metro is across the road (but cannot be heard from the apartments) and shopping, eating and drinking, and all the entertainment that Newcastle has to offer are within walking distance.

Staff are very friendly and helpful.

I highly recommend Kensington House.

Kensington House Aparthotel was the perfect hotel/apartment to relax, unwind and flexibility. I had asked for an earlier check in (For an additional cost) however the staff were very flexible and even helped me with taking luggage to our room.

The girls and I really enjoyed our time at the apartments and really made ourselves at home. The apartment came with all the right facilities and even croissants for your breakfast.

Very central and really good value for money, I would consider staying here again
