Reviewed 20 November 2013

Me and my fiance were only able to stay for one night. This was a great shame as we didn't want to leave the welcoming hospitality of Glyn and Diane. It was by far one of the best rooms we have stayed in, with a spotlessly clean bathroom and decor. We will definitely be returning on our next visit to Bath!

Stayed here for one Saturday night last October. Lovely welcoming couple, large, very clean room (whole house very clean and smart), a short drive into Bath and would definitely recommend staying here as an alternative to a hotel while you visit :-)

From our reception on arrival to the very last minute, Diane and Glyn were the perfect hosts. We only stayed for three nights but they helped us pack as much as possible into such a short period.

Breakfast was a dream -- and yes, Glyn's fruit salad is to die for. We stayed in the Bathwick room and not only was it large, clean and extremely comfortable, but so was the bathroom, which was equipped with both a tub and a separate walk-in shower.

If awards a given to genuine warmth, conviviality and a sincere love of people, Diane and Glyn would win hands down.

First the B&B. Just outstanding! Clean, spacious, comfortable and a decent but delightful walk to the centre of this magnificent town. There is accessible and easy car parking and breakfasts are a treat.

One would have to a misanthrope not to warm to Diane and Glyn's pride in the house, their love of Bath and human contact.If Basil Fawlty had a polar opposite they lie here. Glyn happily drives his guests into the town and I even received an impromptu tour of the brilliant Somerset and Lansdowne Crescents. Not as famous as Royal Crescent but as beautiful! Further, their recommendations are first rate. Make sure you eat at the Circle and take the free guided tours run by knowledgeable locals.

Enough said. I am joining in the chorus of admiration and I cannot wait to return and join the extended family and friends that Diane and Glyn have generated through their immaculate hospitality and vibrant warmth.

I have stayed at Hawkins of Bath nearly every week for two nights since March this year (2013) due to business requirements.
Both Glyn and Diane are fantastic hosts, and have become friends.They cannot do enough for you as a guest.They understand the meaning of customer satisfaction.
The place itself is fantastic and has an air of elegance, The rooms are a delight as I have stayed in all of them.There is a fabulous lounge reception area and I have had many discussions with other guests on their travels.
Breakfast is first class and offers a healthy choice and there is always a welcoming "morning" from Glyn to start the day.
If coming to Bath,and not wanting a hotel ( really don't need one)Hawkins is the place to stay and it is excellent value.You will not regret.

We booked Hawkins because it was so highly rated on Trip Advisor. Weren't disappointed. Wonderful breakfast, especially the fruit salad. Room very well fitted out. Loved the luxury bathroom and the separate lounge. Everything about this place is good quality.
