Everything was perfect
Nice welcome, nice clean room excellent breakfast nothing to much trouble Joy;s homemade cakes in room with tea are a added touch.
The breakfast, the best ever . Homemade cake in room. Homemade Greek yogurt, nice . Good wi fi. Very friendly hosts .
Nothing , was pleasant stay.
This is my 4th time staying at this place everytime I visit Scarborough I always stay here lovely owners very nice couple! So if your looking for somewhere to stay go here!
Comfortable bed, large room, good shower facilities and in a decent location. The staff were brilliant and the breakfast was amazing 10/10!
If I had to be picky, the tele was very small... but that is about it, otherwise spot on
Hotel very comfortable and rooms very clean and equipped well
Car parking limited
very comfortable and clean, free wi-fi excellent,
breakfast only available between 8 and 9 am, bacon and sausage were both dry and overcooked, nothing was very hot, hash brown was soft and soggy, for £35 ph i expected more, anything more that a pkt of biscuits eaten in the bedroom could incur a fine of £50 pp, it fealt like a threat.We would not stay here again.
Comfortable beds, good quality bed linen and towels, a tastefully decorated and well appointed room, a quiet location, free wi-fi, and an excellent breakfast - but what made our visit even more special was the genuinely hospitable welcome from the owners, and the way they went the extra mile to make sure our 3-night stay was 100% perfect. Our gluten-free request was accommodated without any fuss, and even the daily cake/chocolate treats reflected that personal attention to detail. The choice at breakfast was as good as any 5-star hotel, and our Full English was cooked to perfection each day, along with cereals, fresh fruit, home-made jam, marmalade, yoghurt etc. Locationwise, it's ten minutes walk from the sea front, ten minutes walk from the town centre and railway station, and maybe five minutes walk from Peasholme Park, but if you can allow for those distances and build them into your leisure schedule, it's the perfect base for a holiday. We wouldn't even think of looking for anywhere different to stay next time we visit Scarborough. The saying "we arrived as customers but left as friends" is a terrible cliche, but after reading the reviews on here we agree that John and Joy are the perfect hosts
Can't think of anything we didn't like.
From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome, and delicious aromas of home-baking wafting from the kitchen added to the feeling of home from home. (Delights of which we were to enjoy during our stay!) Breakfasts were superb, as were the helpful tips as to where to dine, walk and investigate! Joy and John were the perfect hosts, lovely people who were a delight to meet.
Nothing to say here!
Lovely owners, one of the best breakfasts I've had, and a great nights sleep, will definitely stop again when in Scarborough,
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
