“Great b&b”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

After returning yesterday from a two night stay, have to say the new owners are delightful and have done a amazing job of transforming and refurbishing this house in a shorttime they have been there. We arrived to find our usual room transformed and I have to say it was like Xmas and it looked amazing, natural calm neutral colours , comfy new bed with amazing bed covers and great pillows and cushions. The ensuite was stunning and the attention to detail with the fantastic extras that people normally forget such as make up pads, cotton wool etc were great to have. Nothing was too much trouble for Dave and Sue and Instantly felt we had known them for years. They did a fantastic job for a house full of guests and after our run welcomed us back with buckets of warm water for our feet and shoes and food and new fresh towels. We can't wait for next year and I m sure they are going to have a very busy summer for anyone lucky enough to get booked in. Highly recommend it. Alison

Thank you so much for your delightful review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you liked the changes we have made to the place. We know the sort of aspects we like about favourite B&Bs we have visited in the past, like roomy showers and comfy beds and little touches, and that is what we have tried to do to make our guests' stay as enjoyable as possible. We really were overjoyed by your comments and, coupled with the verbal feedback we received, feel really encouraged , especially at this early stage of our new B&B venture. Hope to see you next year!

What do you hope for when you go to a B & B at the seaside, a comfortable bed and a good breakfast? Well at the Bay Tree you get both of these plus a very friendly welcome, one of the best locations in Seaton and a very clean ,cosy and peaceful room. Thank you David and Sue, you may be new to Bay Tree House but we can guarantee we will be back - thats if you are not fully booked as you deserve to be!

My husband and I stayed at The Bay Tree House for two nights very recently. The new proprietors, Dave and Sue were delightful hosts - warm, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. They had good local knowledge of the area which was useful. The guest house is located a stone’s throw from the sea with lovely walks on the coastal path and is extremely close to Seaton’s various shopping and eating facilities.
The guest house has recently been very nicely refurbished and the sea view room, which we were lucky enough to stay in, was light and airy, spotlessly clean and the bed was extremely comfy. It was a bitterly cold weekend and I detest being cold, so it was lovely to find that the Bay Tree was cosy and warm throughout.
There was a varied choice on the menu for breakfast, full English, Loin of haddock etc. together with a buffet table of cereal, lovely fresh fruit salad and good quality yoghurt's together with a selection of fresh juices.
Altogether a great weekend, good night’s sleep, excellent location, well fed and warm! We certainly would recommend the Bay Tree to friends and family and will stay there again when we next visit the area. Many thanks to Dave and Sue!

Room Tip: We cant comment on other rooms, we had room 6 which had lovely sea views and we feel was well worth...

Enjoyed our stay at Bay Tree House. Very high standard B&B. Immaculately clean and tidy. Outstanding accommodation with good quality furnishings. Scrumptious breakfast. New owners very welcoming and anxious to please. Will stay again and have recommended it to friends and family.

A warm welcome, made us feel like part of their family.

An amazing B&B in this lovely seaside resort, with great hosts, Dave & Sue, The room was well appointed and very comfy, with stunning views overlooking the sea. Dave & Sue have a tremendous knowledge of local attractions, walks and restaurants and are happy to share this with you.

The breakfast was cooked fresh and of a very high quality. I am a particularly fussy eater, but that was no problem for Dave & Sue, thanks. We regretably had to leave and come home, but left on a full stomach.

We can't think of a single negative, it was perfect.

Thanks for a great couple of days, Dave & Sue

We had a very enjoyable time at The Bay Tree. The accommodation was very comfortable.The food was excellent with a wide choice of breakfast options. We were asked if we had any dietary requirements.that needed to be specially catered for. The hosts were knowledgable about the local area: where to go, and what to do, whatever the weather. Our hosts enjoyed walking themselves so could give good recommendations, including pointing out where relevant bus stops were, and where to find good food at a sensible price.

Room Tip: You could ask for a sea view if you wanted.
