Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The staff food and location are all 5 star. Special mention needs to be made in relation to the food which was outstanding.The staff were also excellent and the location is just fabulous, it is overlooking the bay and Ballycotton harbour and has a wonderful outside sitting area which is gorgeous. The night porter is a wonderful asset and he was so helpful and informative. We loved the cliff walk and we had fabulous weather. What let’s the hotel down is the rooms especially the bathroom which is in need of a major overhaul.!We really enjoyed our stay but felt that the hotel could be on a par with The Inchydoney Island spa which we love with some investment.

Just back from a return visit to the Bayview Hotel in the unspoilt village of Ballcotton. We had a wonderful stay in superior rooms with balcony overlooking the bay. The hotel staff could not have been nicer and dinner in the hotel restaurant was exquisite my daughter had the monkfish I had steak and my husband had lamb overall a delicious meal. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious with everything made fresh to order. The views from the hotel are breathtaking if you want to switch off relax and see nature at its best this is the place for you.

Having stayed in the Bayview on several occasions previously we were extrely excited to return having so many fond memories of the hotel and our most recent visit certainly did not disappoint! There were so many excellent points and highlights, I'll do my best to cover them all here: The location is stunning, views are perfection and a short walk to the pier for a summer sunset is an absolute must. The reception, bar, and restaurant were all extremely well appointed and felt very fresh and clean. The majority of the staff were amazing, the service was great from start to finish and we were looked after like royalty! The absolute highlight for me was the food in the restaurant! We ate in the hotel the 3 nights we stayed the the food was flawless. This is accessible fine dining at its best, and worth every cent. The menu varies slightly every evening and you can taste the food is super fresh, also evident by seeing the local suppliers vans regularly make deliveries, so it's great to physically see the produce is fresh and local. I would travel to ballycotton this minute for the food alone, every dish on the restaurant, from breakfast to dinner was delightful! The only things that detracted on any way from our stay were: The lunch menu in the bar was minimal and basic in comparison to what it would have been when we visited a few years ago. Again you could tell it was the best produce, but just did not really entice us to have a second lunch in the hotel. The fact that the bar was also not serving dinner was a little disappointing as it was always a fabulous setting for a casual evening meal. I imagine these changes could be staffing related, and would hope when we again return to see the bar back to its higher standard of food offering. Lastly, the rooms, while comfortable and pristinely clean, they could do with a refresh, they are just feeling a little tired. Overall I will most certainly be returning and would reccomend a visit to the Bayview very highly. As the title of the review states the location and dinner experience here is second to none!

The Bayview (and Ballycotton generally) isn't easy to get to, but you'll be rewarded with outstanding views once you arrive. The hotel is very well positioned right on the water with views of the harbor and lighthouse throughout the property. We ate a really good dinner outside although it got pretty chilly as the sun went down (despite being early August). Breakfast was outstanding. Highly recommend the Bayview!

Myself and my husband stayed for 3 nights including dinners and breakfasts. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt the peace of Ballycotton. The room, food, service, cleanliness was wonderful. We had a gorgeous view of the bay from our room and just couldnt have asked for a nicer break from it all. The dinners in the evening were superb and the deserts were a work of art and really very different - compliments to the chef. We caught the tour to the lighthouse, watched the Rugby in the Blackbird, sampled the ice cream from the local parlour, sampled fish and chips from Skinnys! It was our first visit to Ballycotton and definitely will not be our last. We would stay in the exact same hotel 100%. You exceeded expectations. We have always visited west Cork and whilst it too is gorgeous, East Cork has opened up a new destination for us. I nearly forgot ... on our last day, a pod of dolphins came into the bay - amazing !!
