5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

The Kennard is a great hotel in a great location, on a quiet street, but just a few blocks from the center of things in Bath. The proprietors care deeply about providing outstanding service, so we were treated truly as "guests." The only tiny gripe is that the wireless in our room was a bit tempramental, so on occasion I had to move to a more central spot in the hotel to send an email.

We arrived around 10:30am at the Inn, and they gave me the key(which allowed me some discount at Roman Bath) and the parking permit in the town. The room was small but clean, the interior of the Inn is beautifully decorated and the full English breakfast was very nice in the Dinning room. The staff was very kind. The location was very convenient right by the famous bridge and center of the town.

We and two friends arrived in Bath having completed 102 miles walking the Cotswold Way. What luxury greeted us in The Kennard. It was centrally situated close to Bath Abbey (the finishing marker for the walk), which was great for us! We were absolutely delighted with everything connected with the hotel. Wonderful host and hostess who were so helpful and attentive, delightful rooms with adequate facilities. The breakfast was delicious offering everything one could wish for. Yum! Thank you very much Giovanni and Mary once again for your hospitality. I have a feeling we will be back and will certainly be recommending The Kennard.

This hotel has a fantastic location right in the centre of bath, you can get to most places in the city centre within a 10 minute walk. The owners provide a great service and were incredibly friendly and helpful. The room although not massive was very well furnished and spotless. Breakfast was delicious and there was a good selection. All in all a great B & B and very good value for money

We stayed for one night during this last week and would have been happy to stay for longer. Warmly welcomed by Mary & Giovanni. The bedroom, that overlooked the pretty garden at the rear, and en-suite were spotlessly clean, and comfortable and with all we needed. Breakfast room very well laid out and with a good selection of cold items plus an excellent cooked choice. Great location with only a few minutes walk into the centre of Bath. A pass is provided for on-street parking. Lovely visit and can't wait to go again. Will definitely stay in the same place.

Room Tip: Asked for a room at the rear but the street itself seemed quite quiet.

Stayed one night at the end of May in a triple room. The room was decent-sized, as were the double and single beds, which were all comfortable. Suitably for Bath, the whole place felt very luxe - decor is thoughtful and well-done - and at a reasonable price to boot. Breakfast selection was very good, with continental and cooked options. Service was a little distant at points, but nonetheless very professional and efficient throughout, so no complaints. Five minute walk from the Abbey and Baths, in a nice area just across Pulteney Bridge. Would thoroughly recommend.

My sister and I travelled to the UK from Canada and while in Bath stayed at The Kennard. We had a lovely twin room. The breakfast room was beautiful and the breakfast superb. Very convenient for walking to sites, pubs and shops.
