Bayview is situated near the waterfront. Walking distance to Love Lane where all the restaurants and bars were located. It is not a flash hotel but service is great - we did not experience any issues with check-in or check-out. The Wifi also worked fine throughout. We had requested for a large bed rather than 2 single beds. Unfortunately the...

We first stayed at the Bayview in 2015 and I gave it top marks. The hotel is still excellent and I have no hesitation on giving it top marks again in this review. The breakfasts were excellent with a good choice. The room was recently refurbished with a great view of the heritage city and the Straits beyond. We stayed...

We stayed from 7 march to 15th and it was an excellent break. Our check in and out was quick and easy and as our pick up wasn't until 6 pm we asked for and received a late check out. We found the accommodation very spacious including a massive big bed which was very comfortable. We were on floor five...

Very enjoyable stay! If you are looking for a comfortable hotel for a short trip, this will be the hotel you are looking for. within walking distance to Red Garden and local food. Supermarts are about 5-10 min walk away. Great city to sea view. =) The only negative point was that our neighbours were too noisy. That's about it!

Although the hotel is very good it is in need of some TLC I did hear rumours that a refurb was planned but no date given. We were originally given an upgrade to the room we had on our last visit which is on the side of the hotel next to Hard Rock Hotel but when we sat on the...

Hotel was very central and easy to access Georgetown and the World Heritage Sites. On the whole staff where very good and helped out when required. The rooms are a good size, however they are really getting in need of a refurbishment. Carpets are old and faded and the room needed a good repaint. Overall a reasonable experience for the...

Rooms were clean, the concierge was helpful, decent restaurants, amazing breakfast choices (try to do it before 8am), all good cafes and art streets were close by. The rooftop bar has nice views of the bridge and waters with a fresh breeze and relaxed atmosphere.

Average hotel in a perfect location, close to nightlife and to 24h shops. The hotel itself could be very nice but really needs a lifting, as the rooms are outdated. That's pity coz it has a great potential otherwise. Rooms are clean and very spacious and the staff is very helpful, friendly and polite. But several points are negative: -...
