Called in with 3 friends on a wet and miserable evening and were just in time for the early bird menu - you need to order before 6.30 and I think it was 2 courses for about £12 or £13 - excellent value. We had beer battered fish, chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce which were beautifully presented and tasted... More

Good news - there's a new menu & a new chef at The Bayview. We've eaten there many times in the past & it's been solid & safe - nothing fancy, but competently executed. Our most recent foray on a chilly summer's evening was surprisingly good, though. Excellent Guinness at the bar & a great bottle of Chablis with dinner... More

Stayed in the Bayview hotel (very close to Bushmills) with my husband. The staff were extremely friendly and very efficient. The hotel is on the sea-front and our room boasted a magnificent view. The room was spacious, tastefully decorated with fluffy white towels. Unfortunately there is not a lot of parking and you may have to park on the road.... More

Stayed one night while touring Bushmills and Giants Causeway. Good size rooms and amenities. The restaurant/pub has good food and friendly staff. Parking is a bit tight if the pub is busy. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

Clean hotel only stayed for 1 night. room was clean, greeted by friendly staff on checking in, not so friendly checking out - didn't even get a thank you when settled the bill, she was more interested in another person at reception. Booked into the restaurant for dinner, fabulous sea views, service was great however the food was a let... More

We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis for two nights from the 13th of July and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We had lunch on our first day which although was only toasted sandwiches, were really delicious. Our room overlooked the bay and was super comfortable. We enjoyed our morning coffee in our room from the hospitality tray which... More

I just went here for a late lunch - not to stay in the hotel. There were 3 of us - me, my mum & my dad. My mum is coeliac (gluten intolerant), so she finds it very hard to get a tasty meal. My mum + dad have stayed in the hotel, but I haven't. I love a good... More

Stayed at the bayview before and was pleased to be staying here again for my birthday weekend with my girlfriend. Room was just what we could have asked for and more. Food was to die for and the staff always managed to find us a window table over looking the bay. Staff are friendly and most courteous. We we made... More

Our experience at Bayview wasn't horrible, but definitely not on par with our experiences in any of the other hotels we stayed in during our visit to Ireland. The staff...not the friendliest, nor the most helpful. Parking was very limited, we had to park blocks away and roll our luggage to and from the car. Our room could have been... More
