“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

We just loved Hawkins of Bath. The home has been painstakingly renovated (by Glyn) and is just lovely. Glyn and Diane were so welcoming and helpful, and most evenings we were able to sit in the front parlor, talking to our hosts along with their other interesting guests. Don't miss this chance to meet other travelers! A hot English breakfast along with cereal and fruit was served each morning. We walked into town most days (about 1/2 hour) although buses were easily available. So happy we chose Hawkins of Bath!

Room Tip: My friend took a look at the Landsdown room on the main floor and said it was stunning!

We have just spent the most wonderful 3 nights at Hawkins of Bath. We had the Landsdown Room on the ground floor which was huge with an ensuite bigger than our bathroom at home! We were made extremely welcome by Glynn and Diane. Their knowledge of the area and places to see was most thorough. Breakfasts were wonderful and Glynns fruit salad was the best! We aim to return sometime in the near future.

Don't forget to use your Big Ben fob on your keys for discounts at various attractions. We had buy one get one free ticket at the Komedia Club on the Saturday night. Well worth a visit!

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent

We have just returned from a three night stay at Hawkins and fully agree with the fabulous reviews. In addition to the lovely accommodation, freshly cooked to order breakfasts, Glyn & Diane were the perfect hosts from the moment we arrived. They provided us with a wealth of information in relation to places to visit in & around Bath & recommended restaurants which fully met our expectations. Our stay in Bath was certainly enhanced by the Hawkins experience and if visiting the area again this will be our number one choice.

Glyn and Dianne not only have an amazing eye for detail and their B & B (a true home away from home) is absolutely beautiful but they are two of the nicest people you will ever meet on your travels. My husband, his brother with his wife, and I enjoyed a wonderful stay her in bright spacious rooms with lovely ensuites. There is a welcoming and comfortable lounge area for guests and this welcome also comes with coffee/tea and something yummy, as well as a friendly and informative introduction to Bath from Glyn and his obvious pride and love of this city is contagious. You not only get a chance to discover Bath for yourselves but get to see it through Glyn's eyes as a resident and business owner - if you can really call this B and B a business. It is much more than that - Glyn and Dianne open their home and hearts to you and the breakfasts satisfy all who enjoy them. Thank you both for a wonderful stay - if in Bath again we will see you again and never hesitate to recommend you to family and friends.

Glyn and Dianne have a stunning B&B. They went out of their way not only to make us feel welcome, but to do anything for us that they could. We stayed in The Lansdowne room and it was as beautiful and spacious as the rest of the house. As well as our room and the large bathroom we had access to the large lounge area and made good use of the DVD collection and board games that Glyn gladly showed us.

Diane was able to advise us on the best places to eat and visit in Bath before we made our way into town.

In the morning Glyn cooked us a superb breakfast, the bacon was the best I've ever had (outside of my own kitchen!) and the sausages were sumptuous. Alongside the cooked breakfast there were juices, yoghurts and cereals to choose from.

Hawkins of Bath is not only the best B&B we've ever stayed in, it is better than any hotel. We'll gladly go back again and will happily recommend any of our friends or family to stay there

If you are travelling to Bath and want quality accomodation then Hawkins is perfect, We have just stayed there for one night and we were treated like real friends. Nothing is too much trouble whether you want a taxi, restaurant, pub, a walk or even just a cup of tea.
Fantastic hosts who run an amazing business because they are real and know how to treat guests.
Many thanks

Found via Tripadvisor, Hawkins is everything it says on the tin (Glyn and some guests will understand that!). We spent three nights in Bath to visit our new granddaughter and were made very welcome on our arrival later in the evening after a horrendous journey with a closed motorway. The room was spacious and comfortable. Glyn and Diane are friendly and helpful hosts and do everything to make sure guests have everything they require (including brown sugar!). A healthy walk into Bath after the full breakfast is highly recommended, although bus and taxi services are readily available. We were very impressed to see how American guests were helped to find their way around locally and to plan and book their onward journeys. On our future visits to Bath we shall definitely come back to Hawkins if we are not staying with the family, who are very occupied with new parenthood!

Room Tip: We did not see any other rooms, but ours on the ground floor was fine with plenty of space and stora...
