Stayed here for a night with family. Its a reall hidden gem around bushmills. Would recommend anyone to stay here when visiting the giants causeway etc. Big rooms, comfortable beds and lovely food. Not to mention the very friendly staff!

Booked for 7.45 ...not served until 8.30. Food acceptable, but £11 for burger and chips, and I mean burger and chips not acceptable Nice view got extra star. I am only rating the restaurant. Not the hotel as we did not stay there. Waiting staff looked under pressure. Perhaps they should increase their staff numbers.

We last stayed in the The Bayview Hotel in November 1991 - our first short break after getting married on 24 July that year. On that occasion it was homely but a little tired and in need of refurbishment so we decided to visit again for our 23rd Wedding Anniversary, staying overnight from 23-24 July. We booked in at the...

Our room was a junior suite facing the beautiful cove and sea view, comfortable and adequately spacious (only gripe about room was lack of tissues and drawer space, plus the usual 'our guests steal our hangers so we make it difficult ' issue in hanging space). Reception was polite but perfunctory, and during our two night stay the two receptionists... More

Stayed for one night on 23rd July . Spacious room, good size bathroom. Ate in restaurant which was very busy and so had to wait abit longer to get served but not really an issue except perhaps some extractor fans need to be fitted as it was very hot. Having said that it was unusually hot for the Antrim Coast!... More

My husband and I stayed in room 202 at the Bayview on the 19th Jan 2014 as a 35th Wedding Anniversary present from our daughter. The room was lovely and very clean. The Jucuzzi bath was very relaxing. The view was fantastic, it was lovely looking out over the bay. Their food is first class. Good choice of food on... More

Stayed at the hotel recently. Sea view room. Beautiful view and the room was wonderful, big and airy and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was amazing. Dinner the previous night was out of this world. All the staff are friendly. Have stayed here three times and each time has been fantastic. I will return again very soon.

Our room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was excellent. At checkout, we mentioned we were visiting the Bushmills Distillery that day and they very helpfully gave us some complimentary vouchers for it (saving us £7.50 each).

Sadly, after many years of visiting the Bay view, we will not be returning. Food last week was poor in quality. The vegetarian menu consists of 2 options, of which I chose a fresh Italian dish with asparagus and veg. The garlic bread on the top of my meal had been placed on my brothers chicken dish then moved to... More
