The view alone was enough to make me want to come back. Add to that the amazingly friendly staff and I can not say enough about this hotel! I was so tired when I arrived that I didn't feel like looking for food (which often happens when I travel since I tend to do long trips with a lot of... More

Hi guys, check out this place. A fab suite with private hot tub, excellent value for money. Staff go that extra, we had a celebration at no extra cost they provided flowers & bubbly. Housekeeping excellent too, our suite was immaculate each day on our return. Such a great location, Dunbar pretty especially the harbour & private beach to the... More

Being desert-dwellers, we always try to reserve a room with a sea view, and The Bayswell Park Hotel did not disappoint us. Our room looked over the dramatic cliffs of Dunbar and out to the Bass Rock. Stunning stuff. The room definitely showed its age, but it also said something about its past which must have been glorious. The bathroom... More

Stayed here as it was the only hotel within my allocated budget for work. I was not disappointed. For £65 I had a lovely room with an incredible sea view and a jacuzzi bath. This is what I would pay for Premier Inn with none of those added extras. The staff were lovely and friendly and both evening meal and... More

Had booked a single room with sea view but was swapped to a double without the view. Having said that the view during breakfast was stunning so recommend pressing for a sea view room if you can get it. With limited supply, accommodation in Dunbar is pricey generally and I have stayed in equally good or better hotels elsewhere for... More

Stayed in numerous hotels in Dunbar recently but The Bayswell Hotel is by far the best to stay at. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, the rooms are great if you have a new one but also good if you don't. Great sea views from rooms and restaurant as it's situated on a cliff top. Nothing in Dunbar compares.... More

Overnight stay on our way North, super room with view, welcoming staff very good breakfast. Highly recommended. Nice walks along the cliffs. Very surprised that the room had no Information pack. Dunbar is a good base for visiting Edinburgh.

Location is good. Hotel is tired in need of some investment! Room had oversized furniture. Fabulous sea view. Comfortable bed! Great place to introduce afternoon tea with the spectacular view of the coast. Helpful staff and very good breakfast!

Views out the window were spectacular, opening the window to hear the sea (wonderful!). The food was superb, everything you could ask for at breakfast and the best porridge and poached eggs ever. We had a Jacuzzi bath and loved it. The shower was powerful and hot. The staff were all very friendly. The whole establishment was clean. We wanted... More

We were a bit shocked at paying top dollar for a 'suite' to find out it's only a room, a 'balcony' to find out it's a rotten patio, for 'privacy' to find people walking past our window and the hot tub visible from our 'balcony'. Apparently vegetarians were catered for, this shouldn't include just leaving the meat off of plates... More
