Amazing location
Amazing location, within walking distance of where we needed to go. Clean room and clean place in general. Amy couldn't do enough for us, very good customer service, even with the face mask on it was service with a smile. Lovely views from the room. Would definitely recommend. It was nice to have local info in the room too. Had a breakfast sandwich too which was delicious and she brought it to us too! What made it extra special was the view! When we go to Scarborough again. We will be staying at The Kenton

Really clean hotel. We stayed in a family room. Which was ideal for a family of 4. Kids loved the bunk beds. Hotel clean and tidy and in a really good location for everything. Would defiantly stay at the hotel again.

Clean rooms. Friendly and professional staff. Our room had a fantastic sea view of the castle etc. Parking good as well. Bear in mind it is an older building so it’s never going to be all smoked glass, massive TVs and minibars, but we found it charming and would stay there again.

Pleasant stay
Last minute stay, hotel looks out over the sea and has its own car parking . My room was on the 3rd floor which could be a issue for some , may be best to check before confirming your booking . Good shower , clean and of good size. WiFi ok , some issues signing on but managed in the end. Owners polite and accommodating, would book there again .

Excellent small hotel
We had never stayed in Scarborough North Bay before and would definitely recommend it - and the Kenton. It may be unprepossessing to look at when you arrive, but it is a fabulous location and the rooms are clean and to a good standard. Family-run and definitely worth supporting in these difficult times.
