This was out first visit to the Bayview and we were very happy that we chose it as everything in our room was spotlessly clean, the room itself was bright and spacious with television and all that we could have needed even to a small box with sewing needles, etc. in it. Irene and Andrew are very pleasant hosts and the breakfast was very generous and perfectly cooked. The selection on the table was brilliant, fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals, etc. etc. and that was only the starter before your full Scottish Breakfast appeared which was yummy and nearly filled you for the whole day. It is about a 15 minute stroll to Rothesay central and if you are lucky enough to book a sea view room the window looks right on to the River Clyde in all its spectacular glory. As well as all that, it is great value for money and we hope to return.

My wife and I and my sister have just returned from a wonderful two night stay. From the moment we entered the hotel till the time we left, we were delighted by the friendliness of the owners. We had rooms 1 and 2, both were immaculate. Each room had a sofa, TV, ample supplies of tea, coffee etc. My good lady was impressed by the fact that hair straighteners as well as a hair dryer were provided in the room. Breakfasts were excellent both for myself, a vegetarian and for the two non veggies. We were asked if we planned on visiting Mount Stuart House, which we were and were given a code which saved us a few pounds. The situation of the hotel is excellent, about a ten minute stroll to the town centre. The bay views are spectacular. The lounge is decorated perfectly in keeping with the building. Wonderful hotel and owners.

This little hotel ticks all the boxes, clean, friendly, comfortable, amazing view and delicious breakfasts. I stayed here on my visit last year and will no doubt stay here again next year. It is also a pleasant walk along the promenade to the CBD.
