Beautiful spot on the river, great location!
I was there for work, but I love being right in Kensington with all the shops, cafes and restaurants, and right beside the Elbow river pathway.

Rustic, dirty, not worth the price.
The cabins were rustic and we knew this going in. However, the housekeeping was horrid - I doubt a broom ever saw beneath a piece of furniture. One day we came back and the toilet paper was folded into a triangle, but our bed wasn't even made.

One of the best hotels we had the pleasure of enjoying on our vacation. Accommodations were excellent, the staff extremely courteous, and the surrounding community a surprise treat.

Quirky
Staff was very friendly and responsive. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. No lack of nearby restaurants as the Kensington district appeared to be a happening place. But don't be fooled by the name - there's no view of the nearby river. Where to park upon arrival was a complete mystery, and we thought that the charge for parking was inappropriate. On one afternoon we actually could not get back to the hotel because all roads in the vicinity had been closed off for a Harry Potter event. The hotel's shampoo / conditioner felt like an application of icy hot, or some other muscle relaxant.
