Stayed for a two night break and was not disappointed, we were given room 3 a large family ensuite room with sea view, the room was spotless and the bed very comfortable, breakfast was served between 8:30-9:00 and was very nice.The owner was very pleasant and made you feel welcome. We would use this hotel again.

6 of us stayed at The Kenton for 1 night, 4 in a large, family room and 2 in a quite small double. The accommodation is basic but there's everything you need and it is spotless and rooms do have TVs, tea & coffee stuff etc. Didn't eat here though as breakfast was only 8.30 -9am on a Sunday morning...

The hotel was clean and tidy with its own car park. A short walk from the beach and a few minutes walk from central Scarborough. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is an optional extra but was great value. Would definately stay again.

After arriving on a cold and very windy day, it was wonderful to be welcomed by Duane. The hotel has all the facilities needed for a weekend break and is situated with breathtaking views of North beach, close to the town centre and attractions. A definate return.
