We stayed here for one night on a saturday and it was brilliant. We were checked in very quickly and easily and went up to our room. We stayed in room 10 which was above the bar and had big bay windows from where you could see the beach. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfy....

The hotel is in a great location but the customer service is the worst I've seen. We only wanted to stay in a b&b as usually it's a more friendly service but we would of been better staying in a hotel, and it would been a lot cheaper. The older lady or owner is so rude she really shouldn't be...

We've just come back from our second stay at the Bay View B&B and it's just as we remembered - a fantastic place to stay!

Stayed 1 night but longer would have been nice. My room had no view but had obviously been redone recently and was great. A friend had a room with a great view but it was in need of an overhaul. We had a great meal that evening. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

After reading the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor we booked a two night stay in this B & B. We paid €90 per night for a double room. On arrival we were told we would have to pay cash as their card machine was out of order and would not be fixed for a week. We were then given a...

I've just left this hotel after a one night stay and can safely say the entire party of 12 will not be returning any time soon.
