For my birthday I decided to treat myself and my partner to a few nights away. I settled on the Bayview hotel based on reviews and location. We arrived on Sunday lunchtime and I was pleasantly surprised to see a lovely building and amazing sea views. The hotel had been nicely decorated for Christmas and we grabbed a decent lunch while waiting for our room to be ready.

We had opted for one of the premier rooms which was spacious, very comfortable and boasting ceiling to floor panoramic bay windows with a view to take your breath away.

That night we decided to dine at the restaurant. It started off well with friendly staff and good starters, sadly that is where it all went downhill. We were both served main courses with a very poor standard followed by desserts that were totally inedible. We decided to retire to the bar and forget about our meal however when it came to paying all the waiting staff disappeared and no one reappeared for a further twenty minutes. I am hard pushed to think of a time that we have had a meal as bad. We had breakfast the next morning which was also very poor.

The following evening we went to The Bushmill Inn for dinner and was served an absolutely stunning meal and great service for exactly the same price.

The difference between the two restaurants is night and day.

The saving grace for Bayview Hotel is that our room was amazing. We would definitely stay again but not dine.

Room Tip: choose a bay view room

Enjoyed a lovely 2 night break in this hotel with my wife, which I have wanted to do for a long time now & was not disappointed. The Christmas decorations were up and the place had a warm relaxing atmosphere. All the staff in the hotel were very attentive friendly and helpful. The meals are excellent with a great choice and I thought very good value. We had a family room which looks towards the town of Bushmills, the room were clean spacious & warm with comfortable beds. Sitting in the bar looking out over the sea is so relaxing, especially with good company and a nice pint or a hot coffee. Can not fault this hotel and cannot wait to return.

Booked a superior room recently and was more than delighted with the room, magnificent views and a wonderful meal in the Porthole Restaurant. A wonderful ambience pervades the hotel and this is helped by the friendly efficient staff who really know how to look after their guests. This place deserves the success it so obviously is enjoying, long may it continue! Loved it so much I've booked to go back again very soon and I can't wait!

Room Tip: A seaview room is a must!

Just returned from a wonderful 2 night stay in the Bayview. Absolutely excellent from check-in to check-out. The room was great, Breakfast and evening meals were top class, staff very pleasant and Trevor (the owner) taking the time to speak to all was very much appreciated! Will definitely be back to a very welcoming and extremely comfortable hotel!

Room Tip: All rooms must be great. Ours did not have a sea view but the quality and comfort were excellent

This is our 3rd year going to the Bayview and we always enjoy the hospitality of all the staff. Booked Sunday to Tuesday. The room was stunning with the bay window and views outstanding across the bay. All mod cons were there in this room from TV's, jacuzzi and ipod player,& coffee etc. We ate in the Porthole on both nights. Food was beautifully cooked, good value and there was a great atmosphere even on a Monday night. Location is so handy to the Giant's Causeway and easy to get to on foot. We intend going back next year. Have recommended the Bayview to friends & relatives who have also had the same experience.
