We went to Bath for my husbands birthday and had a night in this charming hotel and we loved it. We stayed in the garden room and what a room that was! The staff was very attentive and nice and the guests were too. Breakfast was very tasty and filling and we enjoyed trying different types of coffee! Just a... More

We stayed at The Kennard for just one night this past week and we were very impressed from the minute we arrived. The front desk lady was incredibly kind and helped us to get settled and find a restaurant for dinner. It was the HOTTEST day of the year to date and that is the only thing that was not... More

Beautiful period town house perfectly located close to the Paultney Bridge, shops and restaurants. Superb hospitality from the owners and staff with helpful advice and recommendations where to visit. A parking permit is available for guests on request which is a godsend. Breakfast was one of the best selections we have ever had. Can't recommend more highly.

This is the place to stay. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was tasty and the host knowledgeable of things to do in the area. We would recommend a stay at The Kennard and if we returned to Bath would want to stay here again.

I checked in around 3:00pm and was given the room right next to reception. As I unpacked, there was quite a lot of noise coming from the reception area as others were checking in, and I grew concerned about being able to sleep at night with all that noise. On my way out to explore the city, I mentioned my... More

The Kennard is truly wonderful family run B&B in a beautiful historic building. It was nearly our last major stop after a very long trip. The room was lovely, modern and well laid out, with a beautiful panoramic view of Bath. The room easily had places for our luggage, hang up space, a work desk with great Wifi - best... More

Had booked three rooms for 2 night stay during graduation season. The owners could not be more helpful, in allowing for adjustments to our booking. Even providing a small step to assist an older member of our party to easier access the sumptuous beds. Crisp clean linens, plush towelling, complementary teas, coffees and mineral water in the rooms. Superbly clean,... More

My husband and I recently spent two nights at The Kennard. We had just concluded a successful walk of the Cotswold Way, and the walk ends in Bath. Our hotel, The Kennard, was a perfect end of an astounding experience. The staff was experienced and gracious, the food served for breakfast was exceptionally beautiful (and great!), the room was pretty,... More

Top floor room and a hot evening (late 20's) but nothing that open windows and cold towels couldn't help. A most peaceful night sleep, courteous staff and high quality accommodation. A lot of stairs and no lift, but our luggage was in the room on arrival so carrying down the next morning a lot easier. Breakfast a treat, quality fare... More

From the first moment I walked in I felt at home. Friendly, helpful receptionist who walked me to my single room. Warm, cosy, clean. The bathroom was a few steps away across the hallway. I stayed for a whole week and never had to wait to use it. Although it is a shared bathroom (with the other single room) it... More
