“Worst hotel EVER experienced - Avoid”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

Extremely dated hotel and decor. Extremely tiny claustrophobic rooms. Extremely overpriced. Although pets "welcome" - the owner moaned despite being asked politely to fill a dog bowl with water. Most unwelcoming people you could imafgine. Absolutely gobsmacked. I'd rather sleep in the car instead of coming here again.

I am confused by this review, as the hotel was not open at the time this guest says they stayed!

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.

Very nice, friendly family run hotel with amazing views of the coast. The rooms were clean, tidy and welcoming for a couple to relax in. plenty of breakfast choice. Overall great value for money.

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 will definately stay here again :o)
