“Great wee find just nr to city centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

I booked to stay here the night before an interview. The room was cost but colourful and the staff helpful and friendly. Considering I had an interview I slept well. In the morning at breakfast the team were really helpful and managed to distract from the ordeal ahead of me that day. I also got the job which I am grateful to the Kennard for. Thank you.

Very nice, welcoming place with friendly and helpful owners. Always willing to help with your visit to Bath and recommend places to visit or have a meal. The room we had was modern and always cleaned and tidy for our return from a day out. The breakfast was outstanding with a number of quality choices to suit many differing pallet and the location was within easy walking distance of the centre of bath.
The Holbourne museum is a short walk through a park and the Royal Crescent was of a similar distance in the opposite direction.
We arrived by train and the station was a mere 10-12minute stroll from the door of the Kennard.
Overall I would recommend a stay at the Kennard to anyone when visiting Bath, you won't regret it.

Room Tip: Higher floors have lots of stairs.

You might not happen to like Bath (odd, but your loss) but it's not Mary and Giovanni's fault. I can't believe the rudeness of one of the recent reviewers. Do they think the place is run by people with no feelings?

I think it would be best to go and stay somewhere with large boring rooms and an indifferent breakfast, run by people who don't give you the time of day and charge huge amounts. Such places are easy to find.

I have stayed at the Kennard countless times and would continue to do so, except that we like Bath so much that we are shortly moving there permanently!

The Kennard cannot be bettered for style, price, food, cleanliness and charming hosts.

The Kennard on Henrietta St, is a superb B&B owned by a gracious couple who work hard to give you a wonderful stay. Breakfast is absolutely outstanding. Being in this inn surrounded by Georgian decor and furnishings was a marvelous experience and truly part of the pleasure of visiting Bath. Our room was beautifully appointed, yet included the modern convenience of a generous shower, and wifi working brilliantly in our room. Great location within easy walking distance of most everything, including the train station, Roman Baths, the Abby, etc.
Highly recommend staying here.
Cannot imagine any place better in Bath.

Stayed for 2 nights in a Superior room. As the title says it was perfect! Room very comfy, clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfasts amazing, had everything you could want and more. Hosts very nice, weren't on top of you, but very friendly and happy to chat, just what you want really. Location only 2 mins walk from town. We will definitly be returning here and would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Blue room is lovely!

I was at the Kennard for four nights, in the tiny single with a shared bath. Its a beautiful property and though I was in a small room I had access to a lovely sitting area and the garden. The room itself was comfortable, quiet and well appointed. I never had any issues with the shared bath.

The owners were wonderful and helpful hosts. The breakfast was top of the line and I fell in love with their array of tea. (I want some of that Japanese Cherry tea!!!)

The hotel is located just steps away from the Pultney Bridge which puts the visitor right there where all the attractions are, yet the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. I had such a lovely time I fully intend to return.

Room Tip: Contact the hotel directly to book, then you can ask about the rooms.
