the Bayview offered comfortable rooms and a restaurant that offered marvelous views of Portballintrae harbor. The Desk staff were extremely helpful and made suggestions for best room location. Definitely ask for a room that fronts the harbor for a small upcharge. It was a convenient location for visiting the Giants Causeway, Bushmills, and Portrush. Modern decor and great restaurant.

A one night stay, so not a vast chance to fully experience this hotel. A friendly welcome. The room was clean, the bed was in good order, pillows good. Lovely sea view. Warm room with balcony, that must be lovely in Summer. The bathroom spotless. The bath was old looking with a tired old whirlpool jacuzzi type bath. The bathroom...

We recently stayed on our two week Ireland trip. This area seems to be a summer resort, but offseason it was very quiet. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the bay. Hated to leave the view. It was warm enough to open the balcony door and enjoy the salt air. There is free parking behind the hotel, but...

I looked forward to dining here as a colleague had recommended it to me. It was a nice dining experience. We got a table by the window so we could admire the coast. The restaurant was relatively quiet on the day we arrived. We had the chicken supreme and salmon. Both were presented well and tasted very good.

We stay in The Bayview Hotel on average twice a year and have never been disappointed. The rooms are large and very clean - worth paying a few pound extra for a front room with views of the bay. The breakfast is excellent and there is a good choice for dinner and always a few 'specials' to choose from. The...

Myself & hubby stayed here for the 1 night Winter Warmer offer. We found both the hotel & staff very welcoming. Irish coffee by the open fire was very enjoyable on an autumnal day following a 5 mile walk around Runkerry Head & Giants Causeway. Our sea-facing room with balcony was very spacious & the bed was very comfy. Dinner...
