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

On the exterior everything looks ok with acceptable rooms, lift, comfy bed and clean bathroom. However, felt a bit weird from the moment I stepped in. Cold welcome at the reception and also at the morning breakfast. No smiles or welcome. Ran OUT of hot water in our room, and had to take a cold (and by cold I mean... More

Dear Simon Lessard, Thank you for your comments. An inspection of the shower in the en-suite room, immediately after you checked out, which you and your 3 other adult friends occupied, found that there was absolutely no problem and hot water was flowing from the boilers at 62 degrees Celsius , delivering supply to shower heads of 41 degrees Celsius...

I'm writing this review in light of the glowing recommendation my mother & father inlaw gave on their return from a two night stay at Bayview Hotel. This was purchased by family for their 40th wedding anniversary. They love Bushmills & the rugged north coast in general so we felt this hotel would be ideal for them. Check in was... More

I reserved a table for a party of four in the restaurant on a Sunday for an early-evening meal. It was quite busy, the staff coped well and our meals arrived promptly. I had salmon on lemon potato, my family had chicken in a very-creamy pasta sauce, a burger and another fish meal. The food was hot but nothing special,... More
