We stayed for short break with friends (2 families of 4), so occupied two family rooms which are not big (but not many inns in uk have the space), but cozy clean and bright. Our 4 children enjoyed the playground and bouncy castle (what a great idea) so we could enjoy the fabulous view. We have been also very lucky... More

Unfortunately this is where it all went a bit wrong. One of our party is vegan and so we asked would it be possible to have the flat bread platter... More

The room was very fresh and bright with a comfy king sized bed and a door to the balcony overlooking widemouth bay. The en suite wet room was very... More

Whislt we didn't stay at the Bay View Inn, we made a return trip for food. The eating area was clean, tidy and well presented. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The menu was pretty much standard 'pub grub' but well cooked, hot and tasty. Service wasn't especially prompt, but I guess that most folks, like us were taking leisure... More

The en suite accommodation more than lived up to the wonderful food! The dinner menu was extensive and the food of a very high standard. Very impressed with breakfast too. The views from the inn are wonderful and amazing from rooms 5 and 6.

One of the great things about the Bay View is that all the Staff are always friendly and welcoming to regulars and newcomers alike. The location is fabulous with great views but the place still has a magical feel even when it is dark, cold,wet and the only way into the building is 'the windy way in'. The food is... More
