Excellent hotel
We were made very welcome by Karen and Chris, they couldn't do enough for us during our stay. The romm was very nice and was comfortable. The breakfast was lovely and set us up for the day. They hotel was clean and had covid precautions in place so felt very safe. 5 minute walk to the train station and sea front and plenty of pubs and restaurants near by. Very enjoyable stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay again and would highly recommend

Chris and Karen were so welcoming and their property is very homely. The rooms were Fantastic with everything you need to be comfortable. Breakfast was by far the highlight of our stay. Quick and efficient service with a smile and the food was AMAZING! Karen is a culinary genius. Every morning was a delight and the best way to start the day. Highly recommend The Baytree for anyone and everyone!
