“An absolute gem at Mullins Bay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2009

The Bayfield House is new and everything about it is quality from the simplest detail to the overall package. Brilliant rooms, perfect swimming pool, delightful gardens and food and drink that are good value and certainly just right for us.
Trevor, Pam and their excellent team have created something just a bit special and they all work hard to make your stay perfect.
The hotel is 200 metres up a (quiet) side road from Mullins Bay - easy walk - and Mullins has got to be one of the best spots in Barbados. The Mullins Bay restaurant does good value lunches and drinks during the day and the view is stunning. At night it becomes a posh restaurant - not cheap, but our meal was outstanding (and there was no drive home!)
Local buses are fine and get you to Speightstown or Holetown in a few minutes, and other posh restaurants like the Fishpot and Lonestar are only minutes away by cab.
Our stay at Bayfield was a complete switch-off, and would happily return - for its position, its a bargain for the West coast (despite the financial state of play, some of the quotes for some of the bigger and allegedly top hotels bordered on the bizarre, and now we have found the Bayfield we cannot see any point in paying $400+ a night for an inferior room and overpriced food and drink.
The other nice thing about the Bayfield is that there is no TV!, and why bother with the radio or trying to work the phone. There is free wifi and that was a boon. What we did like was the great atmosphere in the small bar, few drinks and chat in the evening and then good food well prepared and beautifully presented (the bread and butter pudding - and, yes I was surprised - was amazing - eat your heart out Michael Winner!)
Check out the website or give Trevor a call.

Well..What a Find. Try it now, as a year on it will probably be impossible to get in.

Great location just 300 yards from the infamous West Coast Mullins Beach.

Bayfield is overseen by Trevor, Pam and Jason Ramsay who personally ensure it's guests receive VIP treatment but in a truly honest and sincere way.

The rooms are exquisite with every amenity, the al a carte breakfasts make a great start to the day and you must take the opportunity to eat in of an evening to experience superb home cooking. (little tip...talk to Trevor about your favourites, he has a habit of surprising you)

We stayed for Xmas and New Year and have to say we found our stay at Bayfield outstanding. The guests New Years dinner and entertainment (with a little help from the guests) made it one of the most pleasant and memorable celebrat ions for some years.

You cannot go wrong here !! Compared to some of the "up market " hotels Bayfield provides all that at exceptonally good value ., you can actually afford the intimate luxury Bayfield provides.

You will find it impossible not to make good friends with the Ramsays, feel you have known them for years and really want to return....soon.

We found Bayfield House an oasis in a land of resort hotels. This is a boutique hotel with 10 luxuriously appointed rooms. A family team owns Bayfield whom are consummate hotel industry professionals specialising in guest care and providing a wonderful retreat when visiting Barbados.
The beautifully restored plantation house with its pool and covered veranda’s is situated just a short stride from Mullins Bay and Gibbs Bay and a short taxi ride from Holetown in St Peters.
The hosts Trevor, Pamela and Jason Ramsay will organise airport transfers, hire cars, restaurant reservations and all the paraphernalia that travellers need. They provide a raft of information to ensure that guests get the best out of their visit to Barbados. The breakfast is a la carte and Trevor an excellent chef provides dinner 3 nights a week served al fresco. While many hotels may claim to provide the same facilities none provide the careful guest care provide by the Ramsay's who are there when you need them and invisible when you need privacy, the family team make the a stay at Bayfield House so very relaxing. A great holiday – we will return.

Well, what a find Bayfield House is! We have visited Barbados before and this was our first stay at Bayfield House, and I really hope it will not be our last! Bayfield House is a true gem of a small intimate hotel, where service and quality is second to none. The rooms are spacious with excellent furnishings and luxurious bathrooms. The setting is so peaceful and tranquil that you are assured relaxation and it is so close to the gorgeous Mullins beach, or equally relaxing by the pool. The local knowledge given by Trevor and his family beat any tourist guide and they are happy to make restaurant reservations or car hire in advance. There are numerous excellent restaurants around but a top tip is to take Trevor up on dinner which he cooks at the hotel approx 3 times a week - the food is delightful, and catering for food allergies is no trouble and easily accommodated, and it is excellent value too. You also have the opportunity to sample a number of rum punches and having completed my own research throughout Barbados, the ones you get at Bayfield are simply the best!

When discussing this review with my husband he wanted to score it 1 out of 5 for each category so that poeple wouldn't discover this heavenly place...but it absolutely deserves the full 5/5 for everything, and if you enjoy high quality, personal service, excellent rooms and facilities, topped off by friendly attentive but inobtrusive staff, then Bayfield House is the place for you. I just hope Trevor has a room available for us to return to next year!!

Finding Bayfield House was like hitting the jackpot for us!! Bliss, absolute bliss. The atmosphere can only be described as relaxed. We felt like we had a villa to ourselves, complete with a perfect pool and poolside lounges. The upstairs covered veranda was used by our family for great conversations, reading and relaxing. Being Canadian, we cherished the outdoor areas. Our rooms were spacious with an ambiance of caribbean warmth. You can certainly feel and see the attention to detail that comes from years of experience in the tourism industry. The Ramsay family will ensure your needs are met and exceeded.
Food, lol. There are numerous restaurants close by, but some of the best meals we tasted came from Trevor's kitchen. You will experience culinary delight! We also cant forget to mention the rum punch we enjoyed daily at the bar. Chatting with my family about our stay at the Bayfield House (kids are 24 and 27), it is without a doubt we will return. Bliss, absolute bliss. We think it will very quickly become one of the best deals on the island, and maybe we should keep it a secret!!!!!!!!!! Until our return, we have no doubt of your future success. Keep a spot open for us:):) Love "Sorrell's"

We have just got back from an 11 day stay at Bayfield House where we had a great time. Our room at Bayfield House was both chic and clean; the overall atmosphere at Bayfield House is informal and friendly thanks to the owners (Trevor and Pam), their son Jason and the other staff. The breakfast every morning was perfectly prepared (and they also make a mean rum punch - though not for breakfast)!

Bayfield House is perfectly located on the West Coast of Barbados, about a 3 minute stroll from Mullins beach, close to loads of excellent restaurants in Mullins, Holetown and Speightstown and there's also an Elemis spa (again less than 5 minutes walk from the House).

We would definitely recommend Bayfield House for a relaxing break.

I have visited Barbados a number of times, but never ever stayed in a B&B anywhere before , so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. My stay exceeded all expectations. Bayfield House is a charming efficient small hotel. It is spotless, was only recently re-built/refurbished.It is located in a quiet position but is only a few minutes away on foot from Mullins Beach . It is managed extremely well by the owner ( a lifetime hotel operator) and his family who somehow manage to be there whenever you need them, but become invisible if you just want to be left alone. Perfect for me.I plan to stay there again next year.
Things to consider: You do need to rent a car if you stay there.
The nearest decent shopping is Holetown, and although the
Mullins Beach Restaurant is nearby, it is relatively expensive.
There is no TV available at Bayfield House. The property has wi-fi,
so if you do want to keep abreast of the rest of the world while you are relaxing there, take your lap-top withyou.
