Kenton hotel
What can i say. Owner was away and had left a young lad in charge....the moment we walked in he was very friendly we went up to our room and within a few mins he came knocking on our door. He was polite enough but really was annoying and kept asking my daughter for her name on facebook. He pestered her the whole time we were there and sent her numerous messages saying he fancied her etc. We went out and when we got back we thought we were in a crack den. Drinking popping pills etc....didnt hide the fact at all. We went to our room and within minutes he was there knocking on door trying to get my daughter to go to his room for drinks. This kept happening all the time we were there and we even thought if going home that night so we didnt have to face him. The 2nd night the same again only at about 1 to 2 am there was shouting screaming crashing sounds fighting outside for a good 2 hrs and kept usvawake. Frankly i would like a refund as me my daughter and 13 yr old grandson were scared to stay and wevsneeked out at 4 in morning. We left keys on bar andcwas met with a man asllep on couch. Not good and very very disappointed

The room was nice and clean and the shower worked very well. The only annoyance was the noisy Seagulls keeping you awake.

Nice hotel
When we first arrived there was a mix up with the rooms, we had booked a sea-view room but were put in a room overlooking the road behind the hotel. After pointing this out to Amy, she quickly sorted it out for us to be in the correct room after the first night, which was fine, we were at a concert that night, so didn't spend much time in there anyway. We moved to the sea-view room the next day and had no problems after that. The room was clean, the shower worked perfectly, the bed was comfy and the view was perfect. Our bin was emptied every day and coffee, milk and biscuits topped up. There was no cooked breakfast, but you could get toast and hot drinks, and it was nice not to have to get up at a certain time to get down for breakfast. We found a little cafe a few minutes walk away and had breakfast there when we wanted to. All-in-all we enjoyed our stay at The Kenton and will definitely book there again next time we go to Scarborough, although next time we'll book direct with the hotel and not through a booking website to ensure we get the right room.
