Kenton, Manager at Kenton Hotel, responded to this review, 8 June 2012
So sorry you were unhappy, wish people would bring any problems to our attention so we can put the rite. I also wonder why it has taken this guest so long to leave a review from July to April? We would also like to thank all the hundreds of people who pass through our doors every year with many of them returning again.

As an experienced family of Newquay visitors, and having stayed at numerous hotels, guesthouses and other locations around Newquay and Porth this was our first stay at The Kenton Hotel.
We immediately felt at home with a friendly welcome from Norman and his family.
Parking was spacious and safe at the rear of the hotel.
The entrance lobby, bar, seating area, conservatory and dining room all have fabulous views of the spectacular Newquay coastline from Porth right across to the Headland Hotel and everything in between.
We had a side room but could still see the sea from the window and it was clean with plenty of space for our family of 4 (incuding girls aged 8 and 10 yrs).
The hotel is within easy and comfortable walking distance of beaches and the town and offer body boards, buckets and spades, etc for all your beaching needs.
The bar is well stocked and available all evening and there was a great atmosphere with friendly hosts and guests. The Hotel is canine friendly but this did not detract from our stay, despite not owning a dog.
The food catered for all appetites and was varied, with cerial, fruit and full breakfast in the mornings (toast a plenty - yummy) and a different 3 course evening meal each night. Any special needs were sorted out and the children were kept well entertained.
There were lots of things to do at night including a comfy and well equipped TV room, pool table, dart board and countless board games, et al. Quizzes and Bingo provided to suit which were thoroughly enjoyable.
We will return and will encourage as many friends and family to do likewise as possible. We are already trying to work out how soon we can do this and after just one week feel like part of the family.

Room Tip: Sea View is Immaculate

We had a lovely stay at the Kenton Hotel. The location was great and the view from our room was amazing.
Everywhere was clean and the breakfast was lovely.

We have traveled the 900 mile round trip for more than 10 year's now,so this Hotel must have something.
Could be the warm welcome we receive on arrival and the helpful friendly service all through our stay that makes us keep coming back.
So much so we feel like part of the family.
The view's from the Hotel can't be beaten.
We recommend the Kenton to anyone.

Where do I start! If you want to stay somewhere that gives you a home from home feel with a family bond then this is the place for you.

This family run hotel offers you an experience that keeps you wanting more! On arrival, you are welcomed with a warm and friendly smile and a refreshing drink, day or night.

The rooms are spacious offering plenty of storage and comfort to rest your weary head after a long day. A selection of beverages await you that can be consumed whilst watching T.V and / or Freesat. The bathroom has showering facilities and little luxuries such as handsoap and consumables. They are well lit and clean and presentable.

The reception area has a sea view lounge with comfortable seating and plenty of reading material including magazines and brochures detailing places of interest.

The bar area has a wide selection of alcoholic and soft drinks, catering for the smaller people in your party. The games room comprises of a pool table and dart board for the sporty types whilst being in full view of the bar, there is never an issue of not being able to watch your children.

At the rear there is a T.V room that offers some peace and tranquility to watch your favourite soap or just have some 'me time'.

The dining area is arranged so you may eat with or without a sea view and even with all the glass it never feels too hot or too cold.

The menu is day specific where no two items are repeated in the calendar week. For breakfast, there is a small selection of cereal, including a fruit juice or porridge, with the choice of a great english breakfast. Evening meals are also varied and the menu caters for children and vegetarians. If you have an allergy to certain foods, an alternative is offered even if it needs to be ordered in! You only have to ask!

Outside, there is ample parking at the rear served by a side driveway access from the service road at the front. The driveway is wide enough to take a family saloon or people carrier without the worry of damaging your paintwork.

The garden and outdoor seating is a must when the sun sets over the sea view. A photographers paradise.

In summary, if you want a relaxing stay with a friendly, efficient service and a family welcome then this is the place for you.

Room Tip: A sea-view room is a must!
