We have been traveling to Bath quite a lot in recent years, but this was our first (but not last stay) at the Kennard.
First, location. As location is everything, rest easy as the Kennard is ideally located on a quiet street (literally) only minutes away from central Bath. Absolutely perfect.
The Kennard is run by the lovely hosts Mary and Giovanni, who are very helpful and attentive in every way. It is very nicely furnished with plenty of charm and although the room was on the small side (we stayed in a standard double), it was spotless and very nicely decorated. Furthermore, the bathroom was absolutely lovely, with a generous shower and with complimentary amenities from the White Company.
But the real showstopper at the Kennard is the breakfast. I and my wife have been travelling extensively in UK and stayed at many different B&B’s throughout the years, but what we encountered at The Kennard is the best experience ever. Where to start? With the choice of tea and coffee! You are greeted by a menu where you can choose from seven or eight different leaf teas (forget about your bag of Twinings here!) and the same amount of different coffee beans. After that, enjoy a generous homemade fruit salad, with complimentary toast and various sorts of jams and marmalades. And on top of that, your normal “full English” cooked to perfection with local sourced ingredients. And to incorporate a mini review my wife; the seasoning of the mushrooms was stunning! My only “problem” is that I am now “hooked” on (the fabulous) Kwazulu tea, which I now must start to incorporate in my daily breakfast routine…
To top it off, The Kennard is reasonably priced in Bath, which tends to be a fairly expensive city to stay in. So, if you want a family styled B&B with plenty of charm and (not to forget) a fabulous breakfast - look no further!
