Stayed here with my partner for two nights and found this guesthouse not a pleasant experience. The owners were rarely to be found and took no interest in us apart from their interpretation of a welcome on arrival, 'this is your room, any problems, shout'. At check in they spoke to my partner and never acknowledged me being there, doubt... More

We can find no record of these purported guests from our own booking record or the Tourism registration cards which provides guests names and address. We also have no recollection of a couple from Wales staying in November 2014, which is our low season when we have few visitors, so we believe this review to be bogus. Furthermore it is... More

As soon as we arrived we had to fill forms in, something we've never had to do before! The lady that greeted us was very miserable. We didn't feel very welcome at all. Our room was small and extremely old fashioned. It was like we had gone back in time. The en-suite bathroom was so tiny we couldn't move. The... More

We aim to provide a polite, professional and informative welcome to all our guests and if they are willing to respond in a positive manner then a great rapport can and is regularly established to the benefit of both parties. However if guests arrive and immediately feel that it is inappropriate to be asked to complete registration formalities which are... More

This was supposed to be a family holiday, but fortunately for me, the Hotel that my mum and sisters were booked into, was full, so I eventually ended up at the Bay View, It must be remembered that when Bay View was built, it had a Bay View, but after sea reclamation and building, it has lost this view, but...

Only spent 3 nights at Bayview, but with Caroline's help and advice got to see lots of lovely Jersey. Really nice breakfast and really cosy single room. Staff friendly. Great to be able to have a drink at the onsite bar.

We stayed for 4 nights with our two year old son and his grand parents. We had the mini suite which may be a bit small and decoration dated but was absolutely fine for our needs. The bathroom was a good size and whilst there isn't a bath the walk in shower was great. The room came with a large... More

I haven't stayed in a guest house for years but this one has changed my opinion totally. I stayed for 3 nights in a nicely furnished room with everything I needed. Breakfast was excellent and service was friendly. I arrived on the early boat from France and so was able to book in at 9:30 without any fuss. I will... More

We stayed here for two nights over the weekend. Arrived after 8pm but no problem for them. Room was fine, some may say it is a bit dated, but what difference did it make, none! There was everything in it that we needed. Tea/coffee making facilities, fridge and a microwave. Bed was comfortable with different pillows for our different likings.... More

We stayed a long weekend in August and really enjoyed our stay at Bayview. The location is excellent with a good bus connection outside to Gorey or St Helier, although it's only a 10 minute walk or so following the pavements. Overall, the room we stayed in was very clean and serviced very well. We didn't have the breakfast in... More

We have had a great 3 night stay in Jersey. Carolyn was very helpful. The room was adequate for our short stay, the bathroom (no bath) a bit on the small side. Breakfast great, my husband enjoyed his full English each morning and I had a good choice off the buffet table.
