“First Class”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

After a gruelling six and a half hour drive up from Penzance, Hawkins proved to be the perfect weekend retreat. The welcome from Glyn and Diane was so friendly and kind, with fresh coffee and biscuits served in the lovely lounge. This set the tone for the whole weekend as their hospitality was wonderful throughout. The accommodation is excellent in every way and the breakfast as good as can be. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we were sorry to leave. Glyn and Diane, we thank you for your great hospitality and we shall definitely be staying with you again soon. Thanks.

We stayed at Hawkins at Bath for one night night over an August weekend. The house is well presented and immaculately decorated. It is clean and comfortable, warm and quiet. The guesthouse is situated slightly out of town but a very comfortable walk or a taxi ride away. From the moment we arrived Glyn and Diane made us feel welcome and at home. We took their recommendations on a number of attractions and places to eat and couldn't have had a nicer stay. We visited the Roman Baths in the evening and as promised it was beautiful and a lot less crowed, we didn't even have to queue. They provide a card which allows discounts on the attractions and have a vast knowledge of bath which is incredibly useful. They are the perfect hosts and could not do enough for us, which really made the whole break feel special. Breakfast was fantastic also, with amazing fresh fruit and excellent cooked options. We would recommend that anyone coming to Bath stay here, especially if you are looking for a more personal and aesthetically pleasing stay than in one of the many chain hotels that can be found, and at such good value. Huge thanks to Glyn and Diane for making our trip to Bath perfect.. we enjoyed it so much.

We stayed with Hawkins of Bath last year, and decided to revisit Bath again this year, so without a second thought we booked here again. Our room (Lansdown) is amazing with all the period features all intact, but bought together with a modern and clean feel, and separate bath/shower room. We did hear some traffic as this room is at the front, and it is in a city, so not something you can really complain about! The breakfast was 1st class, and a good selection of fruits, cereals, and full english! Glynn and Diane are 2 of the best hosts you could ever wish to meet, and we look forward to staying there again

My husband, my parents I stayed at Hawkins of Bath at the end of a four week vacation in the United Kingdom and it was one of the best parts of our trip. Glyn and Diane are unparalleled hosts who will assist you with anything you'd like to know about Bath. They gave us the excellent advice to see the Roman baths at night by torchlight, suggested superb restaurants, and shared their extensive knowledge of Bath and its history with us. We not only had a comfortable, relaxing stay, we also felt that we got the most out of Bath thanks to the help of our hosts.

We had the best stay in Bath. Took our 10 year old on epic Britain trip. Glyn and Diane are so friendly and hospitable, you feel like you're staying with family.

Loved breakfast!

Nice rooms, and really nice property.

We would stay here again in a minute!

Have stayed at Hawkins many a time and each trip is as good as the last. This time we took some friends for their first stay and all were very impressed!! Glyn and Diane are fantastic hosts, warm welcome, plenty of information in respect of places to go, eat and things to see. Rooms are immaculate and really comfy beds. Breakfasts are always a favourite and never disappoint. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in bath and would happily recommend to anyone.
