Upon arrival my husband and I were rushed into a room without given any price information. Afterwards, we were pushed into eating dinner at the establishment. Although the facility is beautiful, the food is far from adequate. If you do choose to stay here go straight to your room, ignore everyone, do NOT eat the food, and do not expect... More

This B&B is also a busy pub which has live music every Saturday night from 10pm until 1am. It is extremely noisy in the bedrooms at this time and impossible to sleep. I really mean impossible to sleep. The pub did not empty until 2am and our room which was over the bar was very noisy until then.

We stayed here for two nights and it was beautiful. The reception area is so light and welcoming and the rooms spacious and clean with great views of the beach. The staff who we dealt with (the assistant manager Kevin) was superb he genuinely could not do any more for us and because he was a local could give us... More

Brought my girlfriend here for a few days away. I'm delighted I picked this B&B. Beautiful rooms with a view of the beech and bay. The staff were top class and couldn't do enough to help make your stay special. I'd recommend it to anyone that is visiting this part of the country.

Had a lovely stay in the Bayview as a Valentines treat this weekend. We were greated by both John & Mary on our arrival. Delighted to be given a sea view room, which was spotless, cosy & had seating in the bay window along with tea/coffee facilities in the room. The fluffy white robe is also a bonus!!! Oh and... More

I have never stayed at a B&B when travelling alone as I prefer the security of a Hotel, however the Bay View is more like a Hotel than a B&B. It has a lovely reception area where you can sit and it has a bar and restaurant, unfortunately "off season" the restaurant is only open on Friday and Saturday evenings... More

Shown to our very modern room. Very comfy beds, spotlessly clean and very cosy. What i did like too was the white fluffy bathrobes in the rooms too. We ate in The Pier restaurant(you must check it out) on site and I must say it was delicious. Great value for money too. Staff couldn't do enough for us. Brekkie was... More
