    Great Stay

    The Hotel was everything they said it was. The staff was friendly and very helpful, the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. We even heard someone thanking them for fixing a problem fast. We would definitely stay here again.

    Super friendly and great attention to detail

    We had a great stay at the Kensington. Lovely hotel, despite covid limitations (restaurant was closed during our stay). The indoor pool is spacious, clean and deep. The hot tub is large. I thought it was thoughtful that towels are provided at the pool. The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The staff was friendly. Meg was very kind and informative about the location and available attractions. We loved our stay so much we booked an extra night.

    Hotel has reduced staffing due to post Covid staffing shortages. It would be nice to see how the hotel operates fully staffed. Long waits at check in, minimal house keeping, short staffing makes this review difficult to say this is normal operations.

    Everything was perfect except the pool

    We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was friendly. The room was spacious and the bed was really comfortable. I like that the whole fridge was available (some hotels have things in the fridge they want u to buy, but the fridge was empty which we liked). The first night we used the pool and hot tub (Saturday) we didn’t have any issues at all. The next day we used it you could tell the maintenance guy filled the pool again (heavy use the night before with a bunch of kids) but there wasn’t any cleaning done. The floors were dirty and the pool had leaves in it. The hot tub had just been worked on and was able to be used again but there was a huge clump of dirt and hair in it that I was disgusted at that point and just went back to the room after only 20 mins that time. Other than that we really liked our stay there. Like I said the staff was friendly and they were super accommodating. I’ve never had a toast of champagne upon checking in to a hotel so that was a great first impression. The location was perfect and close to everything we needed. Only about a 5 min drive from downtown. I would definitely stay here again, I myself would just be a little leery of the pool after that experience.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Terrible place!

    The staff was very rude when we arrived. They couldn't find my hotel.com booking. They asked me for my credit card for incidentals and I gave it to them. I asked them if I would be double charged for my room since I've already paid through hotels.com, and they assured me no. The room was very small, and cramped. It felt like a dorm room. The walls are very thin, and you hear everything the neighbors are doing. After a few days, I checked my account, and the hotel did charge me for the stay, even though I had already paid. So I paid double for one night. Unacceptable.
