First of all, we typically don't stay at B&Bs, but decided to give it a go because of the reviews on this site. We have to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Kennard. The owners were very pleasant and helpful when needed, and we appreciated the fact that they weren't overbearingly chatty.
We had a standard double room on the top floor of the hotel and although it was not a large room, it was very pleasant. The bed was very comfortable, and the room very clean. They provide complimentary tea and cookies as well as bottled tap and sparkling water in the room. The breakfast was wonderful, even for us vegetarians, as we were able to eat the toast, beans, grilled tomatoes, potatoes from the full English breakfast. There was also a nice selection of cereals, fruit and chutney. We loved the myriad of jams available in cute, individual sized jars. We are very particular about coffee, but they had a nice selection of different fresh ground beans, deliciously made via French press. There was also a wide selection of loose leaf teas that I thought was delicious as well, but I'm no tea expert. The location was very convient to central Bath and the train station. It is a very easy walk from the trains station to the hotel, even with bags, so don't be duped into grabbing a taxi. The only downside was that the "internets" did not work very well, and sometimes not at all. Maybe it was because our room was on the top floor or someone was downloading a "large" file (wink wink).
We would recommend this B&B to even those who are not B&B fans!
