Having visited the hotel previously I was pleasantly surprised at the changes that have been made. it has definitely received much needed investment. The decor has certainly improved as well as the atmosphere - a warm welcome was provided by all the staff. The bedroom decor and size was excellent with fantastic sea views from the large bay window.

Stayed at the Bayswell hotel for one night last week on a business trip. I've stayed here before a couple of times over the last few years. All the rooms I've had at the hotel have been spacious and comfortable but the main selling point to me has always been the peace and quite - little to no traffic noise... More

We booked this hotel from the internet as we were attending a wedding in Dunbar. It turned out to be a great choice. All the staff were great with us and a lot of people miss this point on tripadvisor. The housekeeping, bar, restaurant and reception staff were all excellent and couldn't do enough for us. Room was good (room... More

My wife and I booked in for a night after our honeymoon trip fell through. The hotel has gorgeous views (one side, worth paying the extra 10 pounds for a sea view), excellent food, and a wonderful staff. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the high street in Dunbar and there is a sea walk that goes for... More

We stayed here for a single night stay on the weekend. On arrival, the receptionist was very friendly & helpful. (as were all staff we encountered) The room was nice and clean. The main selling point of the hotel is probably its position, and view from the room was stunning! We had plans to eat our dinner elsewhere that evening... More

We had booked the hot tub room on a whim for one night away, when we arrived at the hotel the reception area had an awful smell of what I think was sewage, but we got shown to our room by a lovely receptionist who told us how the hot tub worked and where things were. The room was really... More

This hotel is all about location with fabulous sea views from the restaurant, conservatory and many rooms. Sadly what is missing is someone with an aesthetic eye and attention to detail. Room 12 was formerly the Cocktail Lounge so it is very spacious but a fabulous bathroom with first rate fittings has been compromised by a ham fisted installer. The... More

After nine years of living in Edinburgh, we had never visited Dunbar. Our mistake. We spent three nights at the Bayswell Park Hotel and had a wonderful experience. My wife was feeling under the weather, so we spent most of the time in our room -- but in one as lovely, spacious and with such a big, brilliant coast/sea view... More

Breakfast was good, we did not eat in the hotel otherwise. Maybe you should check the room before you sign in. We all wanted some Bellhaven as the Brewery... More

Glad you enjoyed our John Muir Suite the views are truly amazing. Standard and superior rooms can look much smaller after experiencing this beautiful suite due to its size. Thanks for your nice comments about breakfast and do hope you return soon and try The View Restaurants great evening menu. Kind regards The Bayswell Team More
