“A very special B&B - well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We have stayed at Bayview twice, once with our children and once as a couple. Both visits were excellent. It is a lovely location and the rooms are beautiful. Margaret and Paul are the perfect hosts: welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and the little extra touches (such as home made sweets left on our coffee tray) make this an exceptional B& B. The breakfast is something special: cooked fresh to order and even the jam is home made. My husband had been reminiscing about it for 5 years and it lived up to our expectations! All we need now is an excuse to come back!

We had only a one night stay at this magnificent B&B, but it will certainly not be our last. It was, in truth, a potentially sad time as we were visiting a very long standing friend who has had a serious illness. The welcome we had at Bayview lifted our spirits greatly, with a warm and friendly welcome from the moment we drew up (we had no advance booking). It is quite a small house, with only a couple of rooms - so book ahead if you can. We had the downstairs room with a huge bed and an excellent bathroom. There is a lovely view over the Forth, so leave time to take it easy. Mind you after the wonderful breakfast you won't feel inclined to hurry along. Having had the feast, I didn't need anything else all day! I really couldn't find anything to fault at all. It may not be the cheapest B&B around but it is one of the best value we have ever experienced. Go there and see for yourself!

Room Tip: Book ahead as it is small B&B and you wouldn't want to find it full when you want to go ther...

We got lost driving through Fife and it was getting dark and we had no place to stay. The B&B community in Fife kept referring us to their competitors until we spoke with the Kelly's who graciously accepted our request to stay even though it was already after 10 pm.

The rooms are wonderful, and everything about the place was as good as it gets for a B&B experience. Thank you all

Room Tip: there is no bad room

This was our second stay at Bayview,and it will not be our last,Margaret and Paul are just such a lovely couple,we were greeted as friends,and Margaret again,brought shortbread and cake to our room as we settled in.
The room as before,was spotless, and really well appointed,with quality toiletries,and lovely touches.
The breakfasts are really something else, beautifully cooked,and the presentation is superb, the only problem being,is what to choose!
As we arrived back in the evening,Paul,offered us a wee ( not so wee ) dram !!
My husband and I will be going back to stay with Margaret and Paul again,and we can recommend a stay at Bayview to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

We arrived at Bayview and was greeted by Margaret and Paul, the owners,as soon as we met them we immediately felt "at home" and felt like we were going to stay with friends.
After being shown to our lovely room,Margaret brought us home-made shortbread and fruit cake,which was a lovely thought, (and very good too ! )
The room was spotlessly clean and very well appointed,and the en-suite was beautiful with lovely bathrobes and quality toiletries and again immaculate.
The breakfasts that Margaret made were very very good,from fresh fruit,wonderful cooked breakfasts ( anything from a wide choice and superbly presented ) to home-made jams and marmalade.
Nothing was too much trouble for either Margaret or Paul,who of an evening invited us for "a wee dram "
In conversation we mentioned that we had celebrated our Ruby Wedding earlier in the year,and on returning in the afternoon,Margaret brought us champagne and strawberries! which was so lovely,but typical of such a lovely generous host.
The attention to detail at Bayview,and the genuine friendliness we felt there,will ensure that we will return.
Thank you Margaret and Paul for a lovely holiday spent at your home.
