I stayed for 1 night only, but it was lovely. Thank you for accommodating me with an early breakfast. It was lovely and truly experienced service with a smile at this B&B. I am definately booking my next trip at Bayside Guesthouse.

The Bayside guesthouse was a friendly family place. The rooms are prettily decorated and the bed was comfortable with crisp white linen. Better for family trips than business I think. Quite a bit of noise outside the room from the family and other guests

We were delighted with our stay at the Bayside Guest House in Summerstrand. It's location was perfect, close enough to the main road, Marine Drive and yet in a lovely residential neighbourhood.

We liked this guest house very much. It is situated close to Marine Drive in a quiet area and has secure parking. We felt it was safe enough to walk to and from a restaurant some distance away. Our room was very comfortable and ideal for our needs. There was a pool to cool off in. Best part of stay...

Could not fault this guesthouse. The owners/staff were warm and friendly and very helpful. We had three rooms and they were all equally as nice. The breakfast was delicious and all you could need. We could not be happier with our stay at the Bayside only that I wished we had longer!!

We were very fortunate to be hosted by these folks. They really went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and well looked after. As a matter of fact; we had a family emergency and our plans were curtailed. This meant arriving earlier than expected and finding a place 5 days before during peak season was madness....
