We stayed at The Kennard for 2 nights and were very happy. We stayed here 5 years ago. But it has been taken over since then but was just as good as last time. Also it has been refurbished to a high standard. We had the Superior Room on the first floor which was immaculate and had everything you could... More

We were three friends for two nights in an ensuite room. The room was comfortable and well appointed, with kettle and biscuits provided, as well as local boutique soaps and lotions. Breakfast in the basement dining room was elegant, relaxed, with a plethora of choice, starting with 4 single origin coffees in single serve presses or your choice of teas... More

Fluffy towels, Bottles of water provided. Plenty of tea coffee and biscuits. Very, very clean everywhere. Friendly staff, lovely breakfast. We've already... More

We stayed here last year after walking the Cotswold Way and decided to return last week for our one night in Bath. The welcome was as friendly as before. Our room was not huge but the bed was very big and comfortable and we didn't hear a sound all night. Our room was at the back of the house but... More

Set in a central location within easy walking distance of almost everything in this wonderful city, this is a pleasant discovery. It's my first stay here and may be the first of many. At this time of year, late November, Bath is unreasonably busy with the Christmas Market crowd. Larger hotel rooms were all taken, even the chains, so this... More

I can't praise this delightful hostelry enough! Peter and his team have paid huge attention to detail and thus made our stay thoroughly enjoyable. The Kennard is a typical Georgian house a stones throw from the town centre, and unless you are very spry I would suggest you request a room near the ground floor as initially we were taken... More

The room itself was small, but that is what I expected from the booking. Shared bathroom also, but clean and convenient enough. Parking is on street, using a permit on your dashboard. Considering how popular Bath is, all this was well managed by the more than helpful staff. Breakfast was also very nice.

The Kennard is ideally located in a quiet spot a very short walk from the centre of Bath. The building is in a typical Georgian terrace and has been tastefully updated, perfectly complementing the historic atmosphere of the city. Quite easy to park close-by using the residents' permit supplied FOC by The Kennard. We had an excellent room with bathroom... More

Arriving at the B&B we were instantly made to feel at home. The owners could not do enough for us.
