6/10 Good

Cheap, old and just only just acceptable
Nice hostess, excellent breakfast, clean beds. Room small, shower hit / miss (eiether too hot or too cold). Shower / bathroom very dated. Could have been cleaner. Bathroom mirror from a fairground. TV not secure on wall, terrible reception. Plug sockerts with missing screws. One not secure. Could not connect to wifi. Overall, very outdated, lived in (could gave been cleaner) but nice hostess and great breakfast. Cheap...

We enjoyed a wonderful weekend staying with Joanne at the New Kent we felt very well looked after by the lovely host . The New Kent is situated in a nice quiet area on the north shore but only 100m from the prom and a tram stop . I hope we will be staying again soon.

One of the best if not THE best
Amazing place to stay. Very well kept with friendly staff. Amazing breakfast. Tram stop very close by (highly recommended the saver ticket) so no problem getting around and much cheaper than taxis. Stayed at the New Kent twice so far and plan on staying again. It really is a pleasant stay,away from all the hustle and bustle of town, yet so easily accessible.
