Excellent home made food. Great service and welcoming hosts
great choice of breakfast and great service!
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!

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..

everything room,food,nice people,clean and nice cakes every day in your room very nice touch.
there was nothing we didn't like
good friendly owners , good food and good facilities
Really good standard accommodation with lovely extra personal touches and amazing options for breakfast showed a care and commitment to a great guest experience.
Nothing to dislike and surely one of the better guesthouses in Scarborough.
a lovely guest house would definately recommend well looked after lovely breakfast and very comfortable room everything we needed
The breakfast was excellent,specially the home made yogurt, marmalade.
first class breakfast was fantastic and freshly cooked
Very friendly place, excellent, well run bed and breakfast by hosts who are professional and know what is required to make guests feel comfortable and looked after. Some lovely touches like homemade cake left in your room and a wonderfully diverse range of breakfast options, like eggs benedict, kippers and homemade granola, yoghurt, brioche and conserves. In an area with so much competition, this establishment is well deserving of it's high rating.
I found the automatic spraying air fresheners a bit much outside our room, making my chest wheeze a bit, but that's just a personal preference and not really a criticism.
Friendly welcoming owners Good accommodation Fantastic Breakfast Good location and parking
Friendly warm weclome , awesome breakfast , comfortable and clean rooms, ideally situated guest house.
