“In one word EXCELLENT”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

We stayed for a three day break in August and knew from the moment that we were greeted by the owners, Gareth and Alison, that this would be en enjoyable pace to stay. The bedrooms are spacious and well laid out and the bathroom was just perfect. The breakfast is a treat with added local speciality of cockles and lava bread, you must try it even once.
Alison and Gareth know the area so well and the local restaurants recommended did not disappoint.
The Gower really is a beautiful unspoilt area with fantastic beaches that would rival anything in Cornwall. i wished we could have stayed for longer.

Thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay. Bedrooms and ensuite bathroom very clean modern and comfortable. Fantastic breakfast with eggs delivered daily by the hens in the garden, Try the 'full welsh' with laverbread and the cockles.

Alison and Gareth are fabulous hosts and offer details of places to eat and drink and places to visit.

We had a lovely room - big, and tastefully decorated - overlooking the bay. Bathroom excellent and the room was spotlessly clean. Every day we got 2 bottles of water, fresh milk and biscuits Service was excellent from booking to us arriving late and throughout the stay. Gareth and Alison were helpful with maps and recommending places to walk, eat and visit.
Breakfast was fab.
We have already recommended it to friends.

This beautiful B&B was perfect for our short holiday in the Gower.
All the services provided were of an outstanding quality: from the immaculate rooms and stylish bathroom to the delicious and filling English breakfasts served daily. Overall, we found the B&B brilliant for everyone in our family (teenage twin girls and a younger son) and it was sad to leave this homely place with such affable hosts.

Just spent a very enjoyable weekend in Gower. I was on a photography course run by Gareth (the owner of this B&B). We had the two room suite and found it immaculate. We had Sky TV, mini-bar with free milk, orange juice and bottled water, tea and coffe facilities. It was very tastefully decorated and the bathroom was newly installed and very clean. This theme of tastefulness, clenliness and quality ran througthout the whole of the B&B. Thre was a good selection of local produce for breakfast which couldn't be faulted. We found Gareth and Alison to be great hosts and would not hesitate to recommend the Bay View.

We had the two room suite (double in one room & twin beds in the other) with a smaller room connecting us. As well as the usual welcome tray, there was water, milk & orange juice in the fridge. The one bedroom had a great view over the Loughor Estuary.
The breakfasts were excellent with a choice of local Welsh produce.
Although based in the quieter North Gower, it's only approx 20 mins drive to the beaches in South Gower.
Alison & Gareth were very welcoming and helpful in advising us what to visit.
