History of the Knutsford Court

Kevin Hendrickson, one of the four children of retired business tycoon Karl Hendrickson, is the man behind The Knutsford Court Hotel. This property is his second acquisition in Kingston’, with The Courtleigh Hotel & Suites being the first. Hendrickson embarked on the new venture, however, as he and his team had already built a strong reputation for excellent, personalized service. Hendrickson felt that if he could combine this reputation with a quality property at an attractive price he could attract a sector of the market that was currently being under serviced. This property was also to have a keen focus on the groups and family market.

The property is one of the leading hotels in Kingston today. Modernization is at the heart of the property with state-of-the-art point of sales systems, fire prevention and sprinkler systems throughout the property, an intricate surveillance camera system and electronic key lock for bedrooms as well as high speed internet wireless access which is complimentary.
