good location but bad cleaning
It was nice to have a pretty good restaurant in same building. And "spring dome"(water park) was right next to it. but cleaning was not good. hair and dust were under and around the beds.

Not what we had hoped
We were traveling to Gyeongju as a family with two young children, and booked a standard room for 4 people. This gave us 1 double bed. The children (5 & 8) were expected to sleep on the floor. Then, the bedding wasn't clean (had hair on it), the walls were so thin that I could hear everyone walking past the room all night and the air conditioner didn't work, the bedroom window didn't open and no screen on the patio door so we were eaten alive by mosquitos. The resort has restaurants in it (which we didn't try), but if you are looking for authentic Korean food, this isn't the place. It was a 10,000KW cab ride to the center of the city where there were restaurants. Also, the location is not within walking distance of any of the sightseeing in town. We didn't have a lot of choices in Gyeongju that weekend because of a marathon in town, but compared to the other hotels we have stayed in in Korea, this one was poor.

Thank you
has been very friendly and he even showed me my room. Because there are alot of kids on school tours, assigned me a room that was away from the "noise". I enjoyed his company and he made me feel very welcomed to a resort I stayed a year ago. It may be basic but great employees such as makes it worth coming back. He works non stop and despite a 16 hr shift, he smiles and does his best.

Lovely location and a comfortable hotel
Location is good, very near some of the major attractions in Gyeongju. It is really a condominium, so there is a living room with cooking factilities and a bedroom. The verandah was very useful.
everything about this hotel was excellent. cooking facility was particularly good for us vegetarians, as korean cuisine does not usually cater for vegetarians. the only problem with this hotel was the sleeping arrangement. there was a very bright security lighting just outside the bedroom window which had only a thin curtain. we had to resort to moving the mattress to the living area. bedding needs renewing. the mattress was sagging in the middle and the duvet had rather unpleasant stale odour. if we go to gyeongju again, we will give it another try, though. maybe we will take our sleeping bag!

Nice hotel with very minimal furnishings
Good hotel for the price
Overall, the Kensington is a nice hotel for the price. It is a bit far from most of the major tourist spots, but is in a pretty, scenic area. There were several restaurants, a cafe, and a Family Mart at the hotel which was very convenient. The hotel staff is great! They are very courteous and helpful. The rooms are large and clean. Our one big complaint was that the heater turned on automatically at night and we could not turn it off in our rooms. Additionally, we had issues with an outside hall light staying on all night and shining directly into our room.

Nice service but not worth the stay
Family mart close to the hotel (more like motel)
staff were friendly, i think next time i'll pay the extra to stay in a nice resort with useful facilities. the 'resort' is pretty far from the town and a little inconvenient, compared to seoul and busan.
