The hotel is right on the water, and we had terrific water views from our room and small balcony. The rooms are certainly not "posh" but are quite nice. The restaurant is good and reasonably priced. Quiet area a plus.

I loved this whole area of Ireland but this hotel made it perfect! The views were stunning, the room was comfy, quiet and clean. Nice bar and restaurant (though the food wasn't fantastic). My only complaint was that we could not turn off the light on the deck outside our room and it ruined what could have been a beautiful night sky. Great location for visiting the Giant's Causeway (fantastic!) and Bushmills Distillery. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Definitely book a bay view room - you will not regret the extra cost.

My husband and I spent three days in the Bay View Hotel and were quite pleased. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. The mattress was very comfortable and the linens were of nice quality. The shower was powerful and the deep tub was equipped with jets. We had a lovely balcony with a view of the sea. Breakfast was excellent and we found the staff to be very accommodating. The restaurant was very busy each evening. The bar had a gorgeous fireplace with a wood fire burning! As we were traveling without a car, we were thrilled to find that the hotel was directly beside a bus stop! Also, the Giant's Causeway was a beautiful two-mile walk away and the Bushmills Distillery was about one mile. We would confidently recommend this hotel to anyone desiring tranquility as well as a convenient base for the Antrim Coast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

My husband, 7 year old daughter and I stayed at the Bayview for 2 nights at the end of May. The bedroom was spacious and clean - double bed and single bed, seating area with sofa, enough storage space for all of us. The beds were really comfortable! We had our evening meal in the hotel on the first night. The restaurant was very busy and there was a good atmosphere. Although it was busy, the staff were very efficient and attentive. There is an early bird menu but as were out and about exploring the North Coast we had dinner a little later than the early bird time slot. Our meal was lovely and the portions were extremely generous. We shared a dessert between the three of us because we were all full. The bar had a big crowd in both nights. Having our 7 year old with us meant that we didn't go into the bar but it seemed to have a really great atmosphere as well. The view from the restaurant at breakfast was beautiful. The cooked breakfast order is taken by the waiting staff and we helped ourselves to juice, cereal, yoghurt, fruit salad. We all enjoyed our breakfast and felt more than satisfied before embarking on another day of exploring. Complimentary newspapers were available each morning. The Bayview is a great place to stay for exploring the North Coast - Giant's Causeway, Carrick a Rede rope bridge, Portrush, Bushmills, Portstewart etc. There isn't a huge amount of car parking spaces but it's a great hotel and we had a lovely long weekend break.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled with family
