Lovely spot to stay for the North Coast at a fair price. Our room was very large and immaculately clean. The bathroom also was spotless. Nice beach opposite for a walk, convenient short drive to all other standard tourist attractions. Small selection of cereal at breakfast and fruit salad. Porridge ./ cooked breakfast options could be ordered. Nice to have... More

I live in Northern Ireland but have not ventured to the north coast very often, I won a competiition organised by Disability Action for a 2 night stay in the Bayview and thought why not, to be honest I wasn't expecting to much. How wrong was I, this is a great hotel with friendly professional staff, the location is amazing... More

Have been reading a very few negative reviews and can't understand what appears to be malicious comments but my wife and I have been going here for years and hope to have many more. Trevor bends over backwards to continue a first class service to ALL his clients so excellent review as far as I am concerned.John Craig.

Fiona and the staff were fantastic. Helping us contact the agency, arranging for a tow etc. We had a back room that... More

Driving along the North Antrim coast on a calm and peaceful day, my friend and I decided to stop by the Bayview Hotel for a spot of lunch. It was so tranquil we decided to sit at the comfortable picnic tables on the grassy area across the road from the Hotel and overlook the beautiful bay below. Matthew at the... More

Upon check-in I was informed that there was no room. The staff would not inform me of any other place to stay (Portballintrae Bushmills is a very small town). Their resturant closed at 11 pm after which time they sent me out in to the cold and rain. November is cold in N. Ireland. I offered to pay for floor... More

This review has been composed maliciously and is beyond doubt untrue, however TA refuses to take this fictitious tale off. We have thoroughly checked our Reservations records and can prove unquestionably, no Reservation had been activated by this person. We have also thoroughly checked our Security Camera recordings for November, confirming that no one was put out during that period.... More

Staying one night in an ocean view room at The Bayview Hotel. The location is just fantastic - the view is unparalleled of the harbor and the ocean. The wind picked up during the evening and it was just a great scene to witness. The room was big and clean. The bathroom was also roomy and clean. However, the shower... More

Very welcoming hotel, great rooms especially the sea view rooms. The food was very good both at breakfast and in the evening. Good place to stay and explore this fascinating coast in both directions. You must visit the Causeway and of course the Distillery
