Just spent two nights here. Can't praise it enough. Our hostess, Irene was wonderful. Lovely room with a great view. King size comfortable bed with pristine bedding. Great, well cooked and plentiful breakfast. Evening three course meal was delicious. Nothing negative. Will be back and will recommend to everyone.

This is a delightful, family-run hotel which overlooks the sea, so the views from the front are breath-taking. The owner was friendly and welcoming, the room was clean, spacious and comfortable, and we really liked the breakfast - especially the fact that there was plenty of fresh fruit. I can see why this is well recommended on Trip Advisor. I... More

rooms are spacious and spotless, Owners very friendly. Breakfast was plentiful great variety too. We had a fantastic view right over the bay from our room. Will go back to Bayview in the future. It is a lovely 10 minute walk to the pier.

I'll keep this (relatively) short: I was incredibly pleased with every aspect of my stay. My room did indeed have a bay view and was warm and comforting. The hotel itself is well looked-after and the breakfast was superb. For me, however, the highlight of the place is Irene, who owns it. She went above and beyond to ensure that... More

Lovely owners who make you feel very welcome. Great freshly cooked breakfast. Comfortable lounge. View across the bay. Even treated to the Waverley steam boat cruising into the harbour. Isle of Bute is a lovely place to visit.

I stayed here for 1 night with my bro but wished I had stayed more. Irene was very friendly and made me feel at home. Room was nice and private bathroom for my own use was just at the end of the hall. The breakfast was very tasty (as I take the veggie option) and a large selection of cereals,juices... More

We were booked in to stay for two nights, but left after less than an hour. This ' hotel ' as it is called, tho the owner did tell us " this is a guest house not a hotel " , did not live up to what we expected from the website. Tired, scruffy, dated and dirty were our overall... More

Mum and I have just returned from 2 nights here. The room was well equipped and spacious although I did find some dust. The owner Irene was quite friendly but appeared rushed off her feet as the hotel was full. Quite steep steps internally. Handy that evening meals are offered every evening bar Wednesday. Good 10 minute walk from the... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights and would find it difficult to find any fault; comfortable clean room, friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast and very good value for money. We will certainly be back.
