After a long morning walk all the way around the bay, we called into the Bayview for lunch. There was a small but quality menu available including a tasty vegetarian soup. Service was efficient and friendly from the barman and there is a good view (as it says on the tin) of the bay. Although a bit too cold to... More

We had a lovely stay at the Bayview Hotel recently, the food, service and views from our room were excellent. We stayed 2 nights and had dinner on one night and it was excellent. We also had bar food on one of the nights and it was also excellent. Lovely stay really enjoyed the experience.

The view from the bar or balcony here across Ballycotton Bay is stunning. The staff are friendly and service is good. Food is very tasty. Some portions could be bigger we felt. Nice place to sit and relax. Good off street parking.

We did the cliff walk which was great, remember to bring your walking shoes, and then a pit stop at this hotel for coffee. Its a great location, would recommend.

We ate at the bar and because it was a beautiful sunny evening, we had a few drinks outside on the terrace, which afforded us views of miles and miles of ocean, with the odd ship crawling along the horizon. The bar is lovely with some nice cosy areas. The bar food menu is reasonably priced with a good selection... More

The portions of fresh fish perfectly cooked accompanied by salad and potatoes were very ample! The Bayview Hotel is boutique style and the staff were outstanding! A coeliac friendly... More

My friend and I had a lovely meal here while staying in the Bayview hotel. The food was delicious and nearly everything was gluten free which was great for her as she's coeliac. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We'd definitely recommend it.

We had a nice lunch with fresh seafood, on the terrace. Lovely views. The hotel is the smartest place in Ballcotton and was pleasant enough but we had better food at lower prices in other places we visited. Lunch service does not start until 1pm so don't go early.
