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

managed to get lucky as a single and be put in room 12, with views over the coastline. My traveling friends had a twin room half the size of room 12. 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

We stayed in room 22 (hot tub suite). I unfortunately can't comment on the hot tub as due to health reasons couldn't use it in the end. The views were beautiful. The large bed was very comfy. Unfortunately the shower was a bit weak, as I have thick hair this can be quite annoying. The breakfast was lovely with a... More

Rooms for single travellers can be disappointing but I've never had one quite so awful as the room I had for three nights at The Bayswell. A really tiny room, a single bed, single wardrobe,a desk and chair. No bedside table, no armchair.The television was on the wall parallel to the bed so difficult to watch - and impossible to... More

Dear guest thanks for for your comments. We are undergoing room refurbishments at the hotel so we appologise if your single room did not meet expectations. I understand the duty manager offered you an alternative room that had been refurbished but you decided to stay in the single room as it had a sea view. We use locally sourced produce... More

We are self driving around Scotland and were originally staying in Edinburgh, but after looking at the prices of accommodation, decided to stay in Dunbar instead. We booked into The View Bayside Hotel for two nights and were lucky to get Room 12. It was fantastic. It was a huge room of 10 metres long, gorgeous bay windows that looked... More
