The hotel is fantastic and perfect, the location of the hotel is ideal as you are in walking distance to places like The Roman Baths, Bath Abbey etc. Our room was excellent and the breakfasts were superb. The staff at The Kennard...

If you want to avoid the stairs, there is...

We visited here as we had a wedding in Bath at the weekend. I cannot recommend it highly enough as it has so many positives; 1. Location. Right in the centre of Bath, only a 5 minute walk from the Abbey and Baths. 2. A free parking permit is provided. A welcome bonus in Bath. We were fortunate to find...

The room was cosy but a wee bit tight for space as we had 2 large luggage and 2 smaller one. It was difficult having to place them comfortably, without...

Our first visit with family who have stayed at The Kennard on several occasions. We were very impressed with the rooms, the location, the service and a fabulous breakfast. Parking available outside and a very short walk into the town center to see the lovely Christmas markets. We will definitely return.
