“Good location - great view”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

If you are a walker on the Coastal Path, you will love the convenience of being close to the path. I stayed in room 7 on the top floor corner. Beautiful views of the bay. The room size was more than ample for one person, and fine for two. Two windows in the room, and another in the bathroom allowed for a great cross breeze when desired. The room was quiet in the evening and made for a good nights sleep. Wifi access was available, but seemed to connect and load slowly in the room. There is a full size bath and water pressure/temperature was fine. I had dinner in the restaurant downstairs and service was fine. Breakfast was in a larger are of the restaurant and was good as well. Will likely stay here again when I am able.

Three of us had lunch there. We were the only guests. When we arrived there was no one in the bar and it took some time for the lady to appear (she was apparently doing the laundry). The bar furniture and carpetting looked tired. Ditto in the dining room. Although it was a lovely summer day all the windows were closed. The lady who appeared was very welcoming and helpful. One of my party thought the lunch was excellent and said so. I thought that my lunch was only so-so. The hotel is sited right on the coast with good views.

Good points - food was lovely, including the breakfast, room was very clean. Welsh-speaking barman/waiter was extremely helpful and pleasant. Location good.
Less good points - Wi-Fi didn't work (manager tried to suggest it was my fault), no soap or shower gel in bathroom (only shampoo), tiny TVs on wall-mounted brackets either worked badly or didn't work at all, lounge and bar very sad-looking, really needing a re-vamp. Also, personal comment made by manager which wasn't appropriate. Local people who we met later thought we'd made a mistake by booking it.
No mention that people with mobility problems would have difficulty negotiating the steep staircase - no lift.

Room Tip: Will not return to this hotel

The Bull Bay Hotel is really a unique place to stay, full of character in a gorgeous location right next to the Irish Sea.

The staff were extremely helpful on arrival and throughout our stay. We stayed for three nights and lucky enough to have one of the rooms with a sea view. Our room was clean with everything we needed and had double glazed windows so very quiet.

The food portions are generous and they really are helpful when it comes to dietary requirements, my partner is vegan which wasn't a problem for them. Yes would stay there again!

Stayed for one night over the weekend on a golf trip with 7 others. We were made to feel most welcome by all the staff, the rooms were clean and warm and the evening meal was excellent. This was followed by nice evening at the bar with a few games of pool and darts. The breakfast the following morning was lovely. We played 2 rounds of golf at Bull Bay Golf Club (Fantastic Course) This was our 4th year staying here and it is a great value golfing break. All this for £77!!!!! (Winter rates) I think the summer rates start on 1st April.

Room Tip: room 1 is very nice

Called in for lunch and we ate in the Hotel bar. The hotel was clean and tidy with good décor and the staff were very friendly. We had to wait a little while for the food, but it came freshly cooked, with ample portions and good quality for pub food. The chicken and bacon salad was excellent. Didn't have pudding as too full.
Overall a good place for a lunch right next to the bay.

This hotel is its own place, own atmosphere, and not a clone of sophisticated places. I frequently stay to break the car journey between Ireland and England, and the drive from the A5, about half hour, is well worth it for a stay here. The rooms are clean, ensuit, decently equipped, and with excellent views of the stunning location in which the hotel is situated. The staff are extremely helpful, the food is tasty, well prepared and well presented. There are not the latest gadgets, and there is a sense of time past, and because of this, Bull Bay Hotel makes for an excellent rest, a good journey break, and a great place for exploration around Angelsea, as well as a break after a ferry journey. I wish to thank the owners and staff for recognising me each time I turn up, and extending a great welcome.
