We stayed at this hotel on a very stormy February night, but still the views across Pettycur Bay were stunning. We had a balcony which we braved to get some photographs! We were greeted with a very friendly welcome by Alan on Reception and shown personally to our room, with a tour of the hotel en route. The room was... More

We stayed at the bay for 1 night, our room was beautiful, the mezzanine suite was something different with amazing views. The breakfast the following morning was served quicker though I did feel it was a wee bit greasy, dunno if that was just down to me being mega hungover. I would deffo recommend for a short stay.

We were regular twice a week visitors to the coffee lounge. The food is still really good. It's the cleanliness of the lounge & toilets. We would sometimes arrive around 9.30-9.45. You get served from 10am. The cleaner's were lovely & didn't mind you sitting while they finished their work. We would sometimes have to move tables to let them... More

Stayed in the room that was split over two levels. It looked nice but was very narrow and closed in. The food was just average. Used the pool but it was full of kids from the caravans so couldn't relax or swim. Felt a bit like a holiday camp environment. Myself and my partner got ill during the night so... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for two nights with our 9 month old son. Upon phoning the hotel to book, I was advised by the manager that there may be some noise as they had a wedding on the first night of our stay. We did not have a problem with this at all and on the night... More

We needed 2 nights at short notice due to family emergency and having rented caravans at pettycur bay, and always had great service, we rang the hotel. Steven answered and was really helpful, we opted for a review room, and I explained we were a middle aged couple just looking to get some much needed sleep after calming out for... More

I have just had my wedding here, 6th September. The general manager promised us she would do all she could to make our day special. And boy, did she deliver. The venue itself is beautiful, and yes, we were lucky with the weather, but it would gave been wonderful whatever the climate. The attention to detail by all the staff... More

Just had a fantastic stay at the Bay Hotel. We were greeted by Steve who is the most efficient and welcoming Manager I've ever met. Nothing was too much trouble for him and the team. Our rooms were spotless and furnished to a high spec. Our room had a spectacular view overlooking the bay, with Edinburgh in the distance. It... More

Stayed here for 1 night and really wished i had booked a couple more. Room with a view was truly worth the extra. What a view. And what a view in the restaurant. Truly lovely hotel and staff were so friendly. Looking forward to our next visit.
