Just returned from a 4 night break at this gorgeous hotel with my mum and daughter. Had the Nelson suite up in the attic. A lovely room with a sea view and ideal for a family. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Amazing food the chef is a genius. We had planned to just do b & b but ended up having dinner there each night. Food is fantastic. A really quaint and quirky hotel in an excellant location opposite the lower ferry. Need to pre book parking there if you can.thanks to all the staff for making a very wet week enjoyable anyway!!

We decided to spend our joint birthday 'get away' at the Bayards Cove Inn and what an excellent decision that was. The staff could not do enough to make our stay as good as it possibly could be. The food, breakfasts and dinners were really first class and the accommodation was comfortable in every way. The building is a historic gem and we'll be back

A real gem. Fantastic 2 night stay in the Mountbatten room. Great staff and attention to detail. Want to return to those wonderful breakfasts!

Fabulous lunch

We were walking through Dartmouth and were looking for a location for lunch, from the outside Bayards looked perfect and it didn’t disappoint once we went in. Beautifully decorated and laid out, even the music was right. The team at Bayards do everything to make your visit perfect for you, they made sure we had everything we needed and the little touches on dishes were just right. Would highly recommend this gem of a place in a beautiful town.

I visited the restaurant at a Saturday evening and was very lucky to get a free spot for three persons! You should definitely make a reservation if you plan to go there, as it is does not have many seats. Another reason for this could be that the food was excellent. The restaurant has a daily changing menu, due to the fresh fish, which you can really tell from its taste. Everything was wonderful! I would definitely come here again!

Excellent. Superb friendly and efficient staff.

What a wee gem! Our room was an attic suite. Massive bed in a period room decorated in a sympathetic but modern way. Not a straight line in sight! It was spotless and lots of small touches elevated the experience. I noticed straight away that the use of plastic was minimal. There were a various complementary soft drinks, water, coffee and tea. The fridge in the room helped to keep everything cool. A proper tea pot and cafetière were also provided which is very unusual. It is this attention to detail that made this hotel stand out. The breakfasts were lovely and the relaxed timing added to a stress free stay. Again, the use of pots, glass milk bottles and cocktail sticks showed that simple changes can remove one use plastics.

Finally, but most importantly, the staff made this hotel. Friendly, efficient, happy and motivated team made sure our stay was brilliant. Huge thanks to every single one of you.

What a wonderful find

I was very late and Tom the restaurant manager was sitting in a chair waiting for me . I can’t exaggerate enough how lovely all the staff were and what a beautiful clean hotel , the breakfast was perfect and they couldn’t do enough the help me out as I was working nearby and needed my room a little longer than midday Can’t recommend it enough and will always stay there from now on.
