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!)
