Started off quite badly, I rang a few days before just to enquire if we would have a seaview room, a lady answered and replied "I couldn't tell you, I'm busy" in a moody teen tone of voice, i felt like cancelling then to be honest, but I'd lose the £170 we paid for 2 nights. Arrived there to be...

We stayed in a family room and there was plenty space for us all. The room and bathroom..with a shower only, were clean and we had a sea view in room 6. Bedding was clean and fresh with the room being freshened up every day of our 3 night stay. A car park meant no extra costs. The B and...

Nice hotel could do with some improvement though like the door to our bathroom was sticking had to pull it and push hard to open it and on the first morning after we got there nobody bothered to go and do anything in the room or replace things like tea and coffee but nice location right on Scarborough sea front

Thank you for your review and comments. Regarding the bathroom door, thank you for bringing this to my attention as no one had mentioned it before, a joiner is coming to repair the door.

We were greeted warmly by the owner Antonio who gave us our keys and showed us where our room was. There are a lot of stairs as it's an old house so if you can't cope with this the booking might not be for you. Our room was room 5, first appearances a nice light and airy room lovely big...

Thank you for your review and comments. We are having issues with the council at the moment about the sash windows which we wish to replace but they are a listed feature of the building. The bathroom is of a standard size for this type of property, indeed there are many smaller. I am very sorry about the dirty shower...

Despite being within a reasonable distance to most of Scarborough's main attractions, bars, diners, etc, I was extremely disappointed in the level of service received given the amount which was paid for the accommodation. This is certainly NOT what I would consider as value for money! Also I believe that the length of time provided for breakfast was not at...

We booked 2 nights at The Kenton during May half-term holidays. We had a lovely family room with bunk beds which was a good size and very clean.
