“Fantastic Hotel”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

My husband and I visited Bath and spent two nights in the Kennard Hotel at the end of August. We were both extremely impressed. The hotel staff were exceptionally friendly throughout our stay. The room was lovely- clean and attractively decorated. The breakfast was delicious and all the foods were organic and high quality, including fresh orange juice. I would particularly reccommend the smoked salmon and scrambled egg on toast! You could even choose from a wide range of different blends of coffees and teas for breakfast!
We were able to park right outside the hotel for free with the permit they provided and the hotel is situated only a few minutes walk from the centre of the town.
We would highly reccommend The Kennard Hotel and we will certainly want to stay there next time we visit Bath!

My husband and I spent two nights at the Kennard Hotel in August. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was fantastic! The hotel is a five minute walk from the town centre and about 10 mins from the Thermae Bath Spa so is ideally situated. Our room was nice and very clean. The only downside was that there was no basin in the bathroom as this was instead situated next to the kettle in the bedroom. I understand that this is due to the age and design of the building however this was a little disappointing.
Overall a lovely place and I would certainly go again but would ask for a different room.

My daughter and I stayed here for three nights over the bank holiday weekend. We were in no. 12 - the blue room. This was a lovely spacious room. The breakfast was lovely and a very good choice- there was something for everyone. It was lovely to have a choice of coffee blends in the morning and freshly squeezed orange juice. Location is excellent as its only a 5 minute walk to the city centre yet on a beautiful quiet street. Thank you for a lovely stay!

This place is really special. From the polite and friendly welcome the owners could not have done more to make the stay comfortable. Tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and a fantastic breakfast. I cannot rate highly enough.

The hotel is a georgian house, very well located in town, close to Pulteney Bridge: by walking, less than 5 minutes to the thermae spa, the Roman Baths, the gardens and less than 15 minutes to the Royal Crescent.
My room was big enough, very comfortable, quiet, with a fabulous view on the town; nothing was lacking in the bathroom. I've particularly appreciated the style of the whole hotel , the decorations and of course the garden. The breakfeast is lovely, and the coffee, delicious!
At the Kennard, you don't feel like a customer but like a guest.
I would warmly recommand that hotel.

Breakfast of champions, an actual choice of coffee centrally located, great room. Seagulls were a bit noisy but that's just bath! Great choice, would revisit in a heartbeat.

Stayed here for one night in August on our way down to Cornwall as a break. I completely agree with all the other reviews below. We got a free upgrade and both the owners couldn't do enough to help. Room was lovely (room 2 - The Floral Room). Location was excellent right near the town centre but In a lovely quiet location. Would definitely recommend a stay here. Breakfast also very nice, and free parking on the road outside!
