We checked in to the Bayview Hotel for a couple of nights but now wish it was for longer as the hotel was great and the surrounding countryside and coastal view stunning. We booked a superior room which really was the bees knees as far as comfort and facilities, we could not fault it. The view over the bay was... More

We stayed overnight in the Bayview on the 14th of July and can only say our room was extremely comfortable and we slept very well. We had a lovely dinner that evening in the Hotel which met all our expectations. As for breakfast, this has to be highly recommended. My saugages and poached egg and my husbands full breakfast were... More

It was also extremely busy, but they were happy to fit us in if we found a seat in the bar area - which we did. We... More

Excellent hotel , great food and very friendly helpful staff. The manager Trevor is the best host on the Antrim coast! Thanks to his tip I managed to get a rare bottle of Bushmills to enjoy when I got home.

We have been coming to The Bayview for over 30 years - a number of those early years under different ownership. Since the hotel was rebuilt under new management it has been a superb place: fabulous views,a great buzz,an efficient kitchen and consistent food,which was always generous in its helpings. I never recall a poor meal. We visited on a... More

We had the "early bird dinner" and as usual the food was excellent. We went with family members who have just returned from 6 years in Africa. We were served excellent food by a very friendly and helpful staff.

On a trip with 7 others, my wife and I spent a night in this hotel facing the bay. Our room was large and clean, though electrical sockets were rare for charging phones and other gear. The food was good, but the service inattentive. What was more enjoyable was walking along the bay, and easy access to the beach just... More
