“Perfect Stay”
Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

We had a wonderful stay at Hawkins. We were in Bath to visit the spa but Hawkins helped to complete our short visit. There was just the right amount of friendly chat and just letting us get on with relaxing. The room, despite facing the road, was quiet and very well kept. Everything was immaculate and clean, the sheets were crisp and the towels were white and fluffy. The bed and duvet alone are worth returning for! Breakfast was large, well cooked, and served in the garden room.

The B&B is well located, just a short taxi ride from town (about £8 from the station) but you could just as easily walk into the centre in less than 30 minutes.

In all we had an excellent stay and would definitely return again. I will be recommending Hawkins to my friends.

Perfect hosts, B&B and location. It's as simple as that. Everything you could ask for and more, a must stay thanks to the hard work and effort made by Glyn and Diane! Rooms are great, breakfast is marvelous and the dining area is fantastic to wake up to and eat in!

Had a wonderful 2 day stay here. Hosts Diane and Glyn were so welcoming, full of local knowledge and tips and always helpful but not intrusive. Their enthusiasm for the city of Bath was genuine and we benefited from several recommendations for areas to visit that were not on the usual tourist path. It is a walk to the centre but buses and taxis are easily available and the walk is healthy and helpful as stated in a previous review. Our room was spacious and comfortable and the en-suite bath a real luxury. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hawkins B&B to friends and will return. Thank you Diane and Glyn.

loved staying here. The suite we stayed in was gorgeous, well-equipped and the hosts were great. Very relaxing and well-kept B & B, although the proximity to town's centre wasn't ideal. Were I to come back to Bath, I would certainly stay here again. My only gripe about staying in Bath is the parking, but that has nothing to do with Hawkins.

I can only echo all the previous reviews - this is an excellent place to stay, run by excellent hosts. Just two things to add - firstly, don't be put off by the distance from the centre - we valued the walk after some very good meals (and the taxis are very efficient!). And, secondly, we hope to come back when the hobbit house folly is completed, weathered into the bank and the roses are out....

Room Tip: (there is no swimming pool, clicked in error)

Diane and Glyn run a wonderful B&B. They are fantastic hosts, very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. They provided us with all we needed to know about the best places to visit and recommended a superb restaurant for us to eat. We stayed overnight in the family room with our two daughters. It is a beautifully decorated, very clean, comfortable and relaxing dwelling which had plenty of space for all four of us. Our breakfast was first class - a veritable feast to be exact! We can't wait to stay here again! Thank you to Diane and Glyn for making our first stay in Bath a pleasant and memorable experience.

Having read the reviews for Hawkins of Bath it has a high standard to maintain and I must state it lives up to all that is written. We stayed for three nights and had a lovely time, everything was perfect, the house is quiet and has a relaxing feeling, Diane and Glyn were wonderful hosts and nothing was too much trouble, breakfast was cooked to perfection and sets you up for a busy day exploring Bath. When we visit Bath we prefer to leave the car at the Guest House so the off road parking is very useful and at Glyn's suggestion we used Bath Spa Taxi's (01225 313131) and found this Company very professional and always on time. We have already booked for next year and hope to get time to visit in the summer. Book, stay and enjoy..

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely, just depends on your requirements, double, twin or family.
