How can you describe the Bay View Guest House - wow and double wow. From the moment I made the booking, everything went so smoothly. The guest house is a an old building but beautifully modernised bedrooms which are spotlessly clean as was the en-suite. The staff are so friendly and greet you with a huge smile every time you see them. The food is absolutely wonderful with the fresh fruit platter through to the cooked breakfast. You could order what you wanted as it was individually prepared. The staff work hard to keep the outside as clean as the inside. Can't wait to go back and I can't see a bad review from anyone. Just hope there is a room for me when we next go down.

Room Tip: We had room 4 which overlooks the small road down to the beach and the beach.

Dear Guest,
Wow, what a lovely review, thank you so much. It is really encouraging to receive such positive feedback and all the staff were really happy to read your review, thank you. I am glad that you enjoyed the fresh fruit platter...a lot of guests are looking for a healthy option and it is proving really popular both as a starter and a main course.
I am glad that you would like to come back, that is the best recommendation you could make.
Best wishes,
Nikki

Bay View's location, cleanliness and friendliness have been well documented. This time, having been there twice more, I just want to add something about the breakfast, because many establishments fall down in this department. The breakfast is outstanding: fresh fruit, full English cooked individually to order and, very importantly, good coffee and wonderful bacon, both of which are a sine qua non as far as a good breakfast is concerned.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front because they have wonderful sea views.

Just returned from a 3 day stay at Bay View in Bere, Devon, a good location in a lovely town and surrounding area. From the initial contacts and throughout, a very friendly and efficient welcome and service level. I was accompanied by my brother who is blind. Every effort was made to accommodate his needs. We found the room comfortable and well equipped, if a trifle on the small side, but this was offset by having a separate sitting room in the 'suite' we had booked. Many places in the UK make much of their breakfasts: in this case it was most appropriate. They compared favourably with some I once had in Tokyo costing about £90 a go, each individually served by 3 people! What more can you say?!.A very small irritation, the bedside lamps were about 3ft in height with ancient, somewhat precarious and not very user-friendly on/off switches...rather easily knocked over in the middle of the night if you weren't careful..The communal rooms were of a good standard..
Overall an excellent stay and good value for money.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. I am very happy to read that you both enjoyed your stay. Your comments on our breakfasts are particularly welcome. We constantly strive to make our breakfasts as good as we possibly can and it is very rewarding to have our efforts appreciated. Thank you for highlighting the issue with the bedside lamps. Replacing them has been put on our winter "to do" list.
Thank you very much for your custom and we hope that you will visit us again one day.
Best wishes,

We had a very relaxing stay at Bay View. After a stressful drive down we were served a lovely cream tea in our room courtesy of Bay View - a really nice touch. The room was very clean and tastefully decorated making us feel very at home. The breakfast served in the cafe was outstanding, lots of choice and freshly cooked to order. Can't recommend it highly enough, with an idyllic position right on the bay. If we were being extremely picky, the shower in our room was not very powerful.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your lovely review. It is very encouraging to get such positive feedback and we really appreciate you taking the time to review us. I am very sorry that the shower pressure was poor and appreciate you highlighting this. Unfortunately when everyone uses the water supply at a similar time it can affect the pressure. I have discussed this with the plumber and we are looking into installing pumps to improve the situation when there is high demand.
Thank you for your custom and we hope to see you again one day.
Best wishes,
Nikki

We spent a lovely 4 nights last week at the Bay View and it was a few days with faultless service from the staff and delicious breakfasts that lasted all day. Our rooms were delightfully furnished, very comfy bed and great en-suite. We shall return to Beer and the Bay View

We have stayed in Beer many times, the location is great for walking on the coastal path and places to visit but this was the first time at Bay View. The accommodation was spotless and comfortable. Parking is limited in Beer but we were provided with a parking permit for the village car park which was also valid on the cliff top car park, very useful! Breakfasts are excellent and there is no scramble for cereals etc from a buffet, everything is ordered and served at your table. The staff are very helpful and friendly and enhanced our stay. They don't take credit or debit cards which is unusual, I had to remember my cheque book as I don't like carrying a lot of cash. We will certainly use Bay View in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view.

We stayed one night in July in Room 1 which has views over the bay. The room was faultlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was very good with very efficient and friendly service. Would happily return here.
