We were bought this one night stay as a birthday present from a friend. The hotel was easy to find. We recieved a warm welcome from Paul and Gino. We were upgraded to the best room in the hotel as we were the only guests staying. The room was comfortable and warm with a balcony and beautiful views over the... More

This review has been a long time coming as we stayed at The Bay Hotel on the 17th of May 2012 but we had such a great time there that it would be remiss of me to not write to TripAdvisor with our thoughts. Paul and Gino greeted us warmly and Paul informed us that the room for which we... More

Stopped of for a business trip at the Bay Hotel, very nice, fantastic view from my room, and the resident dog is adorable. Missed breakfast as I over slept as I was to comfortable. Only a five minute walk to the harbour which I would recommend. If I have the opportunity to stay again I will.

We spent 5 nights in The Bay Hotel. It is a B&B. The less good points for us were that it was full of tons of memorabilia on the ground floor. Most of it was not relevant to the area and not something that would interest us. The other criticism we could make would be that the housekeeping could be... More

Paul, Gino and Team offer a genuine warm welcome and caring hospitality; arrive as guests leave and return as friends. The Bay Hotel commands beautiful views, superb service, fresh food, high standards of cleanliness and convenient parking, all of which culminates in a relaxed and memorable vacation. How refreshing, well done!
