Being desert-dwellers, we always try to reserve a room with a sea view, and The Bayswell Park Hotel did not disappoint us. Our room looked over the dramatic cliffs of Dunbar and out to the Bass Rock. Stunning stuff.
The room definitely showed its age, but it also said something about its past which must have been glorious. The bathroom plumbing was dated as well, but nothing that couldn't be easily dealt with.
The hotel's juxtiposition to the cliffs was a big plus - perfect for scenic walks, and the hotel's location is close enough that it only takes about 8 to 10 minutes to reach the high street of Dunbar for shops and restaurants.
There are nice choices for breakfast. We arrived at the dining room about 8:15 or so, and it was empty. "Are we the last to arrive," we asked. "No, you're the first!" With the sound of the sea in the air, it's easy to sleep in at the Bayswell Park.
The staff was courteous, friendly and helpful.
Overall, staying at the Bayswell Park Hotel is rather like stepping back in time, and that's a really nice thing to do now and then.
