Reviewed 17 August 2012

We had a lovely stay in this hotel for one night. Our room was superior and had views over the bay it was beautiful. Room was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was great the next morning freshly cooked. The dining room had a gorgeous views over the bay. The car parking at the rear of the hotel was limited but thankfully we got a parking space. One piece of advice book dinner in the restaurant before you go as its gets very busy at the weekends and we did not get a table until 9.15 and everywhere in the local area was also booked out. The receptionist staff were very helpful. Its is an ideal base for visiting the giants causeway. Would definitely return and would recommend to others

We opted for a superior room which promised a view. We were not disappointed, the view was stunning overlooking the bay.
The room was very large and well finished.
Breakfast was great.
Service was ok.
The hotel location was perfect for Giants Causeway, the rope bridge and Dunluce Castle.
Car park was a bit small but after waiting we got parking. Bar and restaurant were busy. If eating book early as we could not get dinner on our first night.

Room Tip: Superior with a view

We spent one night here on our way to our son's wedding. The view was lovely! The beautiful gardens in front of the hotel were a nice foreground for pictures of the picturesque harbor.
We ate dinner in the restaurant and very much enjoyed our meal. We had a table at the window which was very nice. My steak did have to go back to the kitchen because i had asked for medium rare and it was too rare but the process was very quick . My husband loved his beef bourginion and would highly recommend it!
We did pay extra for the sea view room and it was well worth it. The view was beautiful!
The location was very convenient to the Giants Causeway, Bushmills and the Portrush golf course.
If we return to Portballintrae in the future we will plan to stay at the Bayview!

Room Tip: It's worth the extra for the sea view room.

Just back from 2 nigh break in the Bayview Hotel. The location overlooking a small sandy beach in a tiny quiet village is perfect & even though the hotel was full we still felt as if we were special guests. The front room we paid extra for was worth it & had a small balcony you can stand out on. Food was excellent & plentiful with a varied menu, I would recommend the fish dishes. All the staff were very pleasant & helpful with good local knowledge & the hotel is very clean throughout. We had great weather so were able to take our drinks out to the tables overlooking the beach & in the evenings the sunsets were spectacular. We would recommend this small hotel to all our friends for a short break & it was busy with visitors from America & other nationalities so early booking is recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are worth paying a little extra for

We stayed here only one night and loved it, fab room with a sea view, food in restaurant was really really nice. We had stayed in some b and bs which were dismal for almost the same price. Staff were lovely and well trained especially the chap on reception (did not get his name) he was so pleasant and welcoming. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Try and get a sea view room
