4 stars for the location and fantastic view from the top floor also the staff, who were very helpful and friendly. The hotel itself is clean and tidy but the furnishings and decoration are quite old school - think early sixties. Breakfast was very good. We were there for three nights, for a wedding and enjoyed our stay on Bute....

We each had a single room overlooking rothesay bay.Very comfortable bed and a lovely tranquil view.Breakfast was substantial and delicious.

We recently had a lovely visit to Bayview and were very lucky as we hadn't booked. Very friendly and helpful landlady who was full of suggestions of interesting places to visit. We had a room overlooking the garden which had a very comfortable king size bed. Breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day! Shame she couldn't do...

Beautiful location and an ever-changing view despite the rain over the bay of Rothesay - couldn't have asked for better. We were comfortable here and the food was good, but it was very old-fashioned - especially the bathroom - and the bed was adequate. There was a bit of a stilted atmosphere over breakfast but maybe that's down to the...

Just spent two nights here. Can't praise it enough. Our hostess, Irene was wonderful. Lovely room with a great view. King size comfortable bed with pristine bedding. Great, well cooked and plentiful breakfast. Evening three course meal was delicious. Nothing negative. Will be back and will recommend to everyone.

This is a delightful, family-run hotel which overlooks the sea, so the views from the front are breath-taking. The owner was friendly and welcoming, the room was clean, spacious and comfortable, and we really liked the breakfast - especially the fact that there was plenty of fresh fruit. I can see why this is well recommended on Trip Advisor. I...

rooms are spacious and spotless, Owners very friendly. Breakfast was plentiful great variety too. We had a fantastic view right over the bay from our room. Will go back to Bayview in the future. It is a lovely 10 minute walk to the pier.

I'll keep this (relatively) short: I was incredibly pleased with every aspect of my stay. My room did indeed have a bay view and was warm and comforting. The hotel itself is well looked-after and the breakfast was superb. For me, however, the highlight of the place is Irene, who owns it. She went above and beyond to ensure that...

Lovely owners who make you feel very welcome. Great freshly cooked breakfast. Comfortable lounge. View across the bay. Even treated to the Waverley steam boat cruising into the harbour. Isle of Bute is a lovely place to visit.
