trevorkane01, Owner at Bayview Hotel, responded to this review

We are sorry that you could not enjoy the vibrant and lively atmosphere at Bayview like many others from all professions, who thoroughly enjoyed the Ireland v Scotland Rugby game. I am very pleased that the Bar and Restaurant was so busy, the support we get ensures secure employment for some 50 local people and the knock on support to... More

Really nice hotel in a beautiful location. As another reviewer said, we had an unexpectedly good dinner there. I mean, really good food. The staff as super nice too. And, quiet. My only complaint is that the shower was not as nice as the room and bed. Not bad, but not fantastic. Also, our rooms did not have a view,... More

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.

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
