The rooms, amazing breakfast, friendly owners.
Loved the room it was like new all clean and everything we would need - the bathroom was also great! Breakfast good especially the extras on offer e.g home made smoothies, yoghurts and jams etc! Overall a brilliant stay and would definitely return
Joy and John owners very warm and genuine nothing any trouble. Room was very clean and comfortable with home made cakes as a nice touch daily.Breakfast was absolutely wonderful everything you could ask for on the choices and more. Shops and sea front only 5 mins walk away, free parking right outside so no worry. Brilliant break for 4days will definitely use again.
The staff very good the food excellent ,comfortable beds
We didn't like the decor our room looked as if a child had decorated it there was even paint on the carpet ,there was no lounge so we spent a lot of time in our room ,defiantly not 4star as we were expecting,
everythink was nice at the Kensington very friendly john&joy breakfast was so lovely.
Handy location Good home made food and excellent choice of breakfast Quiet room Big shower cubicle Lovely hosts
Excellent proprietors (John & Joy), who couldn't do enough for you. All food homemade, jams, ketchup, bread, yogurts etc also a homemade bun/biscuit put in your room daily, little things like this give you a feeling of luxury. Lovely decorated room. Breakfasts were spot on. Quality fittings. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. Am trying to juggle my working days so I can go back ASAP.
Excellent home made food. Great service and welcoming hosts
Myself and my husband wanted a couple of days away so booked this B&B last minute. We arrived early and our room was ready for us, parking was great just outside, room was big with everything we needed. The breakfast was out of this world!! Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks for a great time x
That we had to go home
great choice of breakfast and great service!
Nothing to dislike, but we were impressed with the little extras,e.g.cricket ground information, local bus timetables, and good places to dine. This added to a good short break holiday.
We were 3nights in. Friendliness owners, delicious breakfast, and home made cakes, bread and yogurts. Good location.
Exceptionally helpful hosts and "top notch breakfast".
Only 2 problems due to having a bad back. Firstly the sinks are too low and secondly beds not supportive enough.
Staff/owners were very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent giving lots of choice and home made extras Bed very comfortable Close to town centre and sea front Peashome park 3 min walk away
The owners are very nice and helpful! They are very proud of what they've got! Very good breakfast and was a really nice touch having 2 home made cupcakes in the room for us.
Wifi didn't work very well! Everything else was good!!!!
Can't think of anything
Very friendly welcome and helpful knowledgeable hosts. Excellent breakfast with so many choices! The pancakes with berries was a work of art!
Can't think of anything
Have just returned from 2 night trip to the Kensington. From the beautifully appointed bedrooms to the home made yokhurt for breakfast, this hotel ticks every box imaginable. Ideally located for local ammenities and the owners couldnt be more helpful. As Arnie would say ' I'll be back'
Great breakfast lovely staff comfy bed, best night sleep in ages.
A little too far away from where we wanted to be and we thought it had sea views but that turned out to be a mural in the dining room!
Excellent room, friendliness and home made cakes, biscuits, bread and yogurts.
Very hospitable and an excellent breakfast .
Smell of cooking wafting up the stairs to our room every morning .
We stayed B and B for two nights in bedroom 2. The room was clean, tidy and well stocked with tea/coffee. For anybody staying longer there is plenty of cupboards/draws etc. The breakfast was amazing, so much to choose from and all so tasty, it really sets you up for the day. As for Joy and John, they were wonderful hosts, so friendly, attentive and helpful. It was a pleasure to stay at the Kensington.
The breakfast was delicious and the staff were very welcoming.
The breakfasts with home made yoghurts and jams, and the great choices. The extra touches of the home made cakes left in the room every day. The helpfulness of Joy and John..
good location staff very helpful breakfasts excellent room clean tidy always plenty of coffee tea milk in bedroom we would stop again thanks.we would recommend to others
