This is one of the best hotels my wife and I have stayed in Rooms very updated, bed is the most comfortable one I've slept in, the bed was unreal. Bathroom very good. This was booked at last minute, a decision well made. The food was outstanding (evening meal) although one issue don't get a table close to the large window, with the sun shingle though it can be a little uncomfortable.. Breakfast outstanding fresh and made when ordered. Couldn't ask for more, will be back before xmas .best hotel around this area.. Great for walking to causeway via the railway coastal path. 5 STARS

Fantastic hotel with outstanding views over the bay, plentiful parking on the car parks The room was amazing, top floor seafront suite, not cheap but worth the money for the extra large room with the stunning view Breakfast the "ulster fry up" was so tasty and plentiful, evening menu was short on choice but guess Covid had a hand in that The staff were very friendly as was the rest of Northern Ireland, lovely people ! Beautiful part of the country Couldn't really fault the Hotel, would reccomend and stay there again

The moment we entered the Bayview Hotel we knew that we were going to experience what real hospitality means. This Hotel offers a level of service - attention to detail , never mind its beautiful location that has it standing head and shoulders above much of its competition. We had lunch on Sunday and Dinner on both nights we stayed and the food served was extremely good standard with a team serving who were extremely pleasant - eager to please and just simply really nice friendly people. The rooms were large - really well equipped , small fridge - coffee making machine and everything needed to make your stay comfortable and with no noise at night it meant a relaxing stay. One of our rooms was a Suite - chosen for its size and location it certainly met all of our expectations and beyond and was well worth the additional cost. Gillian on reception, along with her colleagues never tired of answering questions or making requests happen - they were an excellent front of house team. The hotel has an abundance of hand cleaning stations - signage and is making a real effort to encourage everyone to stay safe and feel safe. The owner really impressed us, he was there at various periods during our stay - meeting and greeting - ensuring that everyone was welcomed and felt at ease - its not hard to understand why the staff behave as they do - they obviously learn this from the top. It is everything a locally owned and managed Hotel should be - welcoming and professional to its very core - the type of Hotel you just want to visit again and again. Well done Bayview Hotel !

6 of us stayed at the hotel for my Father's 80th birthday and we had a fantastic time at the Bayview, and enjoyed the stunning location. The rooms were lovely and spacious and spotlessly clean. The bar and restaurant area has been beautifully refurbished and the food was delicious. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful
