Reviewed 21 February 2013

My father and stepmother stayed recently for a night and they were very happy with all aspects of their stay at Hawkins and I am sure they will book in again when they visit again. Must be good! It's so nice to have a B&B I can recommend for being so comfortable and welcoming for visitors when my house is full. Thank you Hawkins.

If you are going to visit Bath and surrounding area, we strongly suggest you stay at Hawkins. We spent two nights with two children in the Widcombe Family en-suite suite. Very good room, clean and tidy, good beds, good shower, ideal for a family. Diane and Glyn best hosts: friendly, always ready to help and suggest the best options (thanks Glyn, today's itinerary was great) but never intrusive. Great breakfast in a nice conservatory. Kids happy with the DVD selection that you can watch in the room. Private parking another plus.

Off-street parking. Warm welcome with tea, biscuits and great chat with hosts (Glynn and Diane) in lounge room. Room very generous, comfortable bed, free wifi, great hot shower with room to move. Very helpful and informative hosts that ended up taking us on a driving tour of Bath, and dropped us off close to a great restaurant (Aqua). Quiet and cosy night with breakfast served in a new sun room (great - even in the rain - could watch the birds in the garden). Not situated right in Bath but an easy 20 minute walk or 3 minute drive to central parking. Would definitely stay again if we ever return.

Thank you Brian for such a kind review. It is always a pleasure for us when our guests appreciate any added value we can offer. It is fotunate for us that the short journey into the City centre takes in one or two Iconic landmarks . We are glad that we were able to encorporate a lift into town for you with a shopping trip of our own. Unfortunately, we cannot offer such lifts as standard, but we are always pleased to assist if we can. Best wishes, Glyn and Diane.

Lovely last minute stay on our recent trip to the UK from South Africa. Lovely welcoming hosts, super accomodation and scrumptious breakfast!

Easy walking distance to the charming city centre and secure parking on the property.

Definitely worth a visit!

Room Tip: Even although the room we were in was downstairs at the front door, it was not at all nosiy. Lovel...

I had the great good fortune to stay at Hawkins for a week while I attended a Richard Bertinet baking course. The owners, Diane and Glyn, are warm, generous, enthusiastic and endlessly helpful and the Guesthouse and its rooms are beautifully presented and well equipped. Breakfast is simple but more than adequate, especially Glyn's fruit salad and the walk into town through the park and past the Royal Crescent is a joy.

Hawkins knocks the spots off most hotels and guest houses and is very highly recommended to anyone wanting quality accommodation in Bath

Room Tip: I stayed in the Bathwick room which had the advantage of a large, well equipped bathroom complete wi...

Glyn and Diane were as nice and accommodating as everyone here has written. We arrived much later than expected and yet they took time to sit with me over a cup of tea to introduce me to the house and the area. Then, at the end of our stay, they even arranged for tea for my 4 family members who came to pick us up, which was above and beyond what we expected. Our room was charming and comfortable, as is each room they so kindly showed us. They are very proud of their remodel and should be- it's beautifully done. Please note that it's about a 30 minute walk into the shopping/ downtown area of Bath- a bit longer than we expected. However, it's a lovely walk with most of it through a park and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we ever get back to Bath.
