Accommodations

Privacy is priority

We are proud of the fact that everyone who lives at Kensington Gardens enjoys the privacy of their own room. There are three room options available: basic room, semi-private room and private room.

We have a nurse call-bell system installed in every room (at the bedside and in the bathroom). Our rooms are wired for cable television and private telephone lines.
