We went to Rothesay, Isle of Bute, for a two-night stay at Bayview. The June weather was miserable, shutting down the ferry, but overall, the Scots were warm and welcoming. We stayed in the bay view room with canopy bed. It was lovely. Our favorite part, though, was the food. The husband is a gourmet chef and fixed dinners and... More

I have been to this hotel more than once and have found it mirrors the warm reception you get when you walk in the door. I have visited during colder months and I am pleased to say that both the sitting room and dinning room are always comfortably heated. Both the aforementioned rooms are also well decorated and more importantly,... More

Was very pleased with our weekend on Bute, the Bayview is more a B & B rather than a hotel, central location, large comfortable bed, spacious room, nice breakfast, cooked to order and fresh fruit. Down side furniture and decor dated but whole building is clean and well looked after.

My first stay in Rothesay. I had reviewed several hotels and was pleased that I chose the Bayview. It is a small family run hotel. If you are looking for ultra modern this isn't the one to choose. This traditional Scottish hotel is very comfortable and the views out to sea are the very best. You can watch the ferry... More

My wife and I stayed at the Bayview from 11 to 13th September 2015, wanting a weekend just to chill. The room had a suite attached and was on the top floor, quite a few stairs to climb but we'll worth the view of the bay. The room was large, airy and spacious, with three large windows affording access to... More

This was our first visit to the Bayview but, hopefully, it will not be our last. The hotel is in a good location with a lovely view over Rothesay Bay and our room, though looking out over the rear of the hotel was of a good size, well furnished and extremely comfortable. Further, the welcome and service which we got... More

4 stars for the location and fantastic view from the top floor also the staff, who were very helpful and friendly. The hotel itself is clean and tidy but the furnishings and decoration are quite old school - think early sixties. Breakfast was very good. We were there for three nights, for a wedding and enjoyed our stay on Bute.... More

We recently had a lovely visit to Bayview and were very lucky as we hadn't booked. Very friendly and helpful landlady who was full of suggestions of interesting places to visit. We had a room overlooking the garden which had a very comfortable king size bed. Breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day! Shame she couldn't do... More

Beautiful location and an ever-changing view despite the rain over the bay of Rothesay - couldn't have asked for better. We were comfortable here and the food was good, but it was very old-fashioned - especially the bathroom - and the bed was adequate. There was a bit of a stilted atmosphere over breakfast but maybe that's down to the... More
