We where given room 1, which was well equipped and clean. I did feel that the room decor could do with a little TLC. The lining paper on the ceiling was coming off. The room was a good size but due to its location I would not recommend staying in it.You could hear people coming and going as it was... More

We recently stayed here for a 2 night break over the weekend. Upon arrival our room was not ready as we arrived very early 11:45. The staff was very polite, helpful and assured us the rooms will be ready in 10 minutes so decided to have a quiet drink while we await. Rooms were immaculate & modern and very well... More

Spent two nights, firstly keep inmind it's Brains Establishment, so fairly decent beer! Rooms on the small size, acceptable, (aka Old style Travelodge) but corridors need refurbishing. Breakfast was it's redeeming feature.Staff generally helpful. Evening meals, main stream pub grub.

Given that Porthcawl is very overpriced we were delighted to get good value for money for the Double Rooms with breakfast, which was very tasty! We were visiting for a cousins 50th birthday. The fact that my cousin lives in Nottage which is where this hotel/pub is based made it even better. £60 for a double for single occupancy &... More

A very nice staff! Excellent food and beverage for breakfast (hearty servings of good cold & hot food), lunch (R&C have a great burger & chips), and dinner (quite gourmet, so there is obviously a good cook hidden somewhere). It is a properly old fashioned bar with a wide selection of bitters, ales, and a GREAT INTERNATIONAL WINE LIST. THIS... More

Quiet village location & as the bar closes at a reasonable hour the rooms are allow for a good nights sleep. Room size not as large as you might find in a hotel but perfectly adequate, clean & comfortable. Menu was varied & pub busy with locals which is always a good sign. Good selection of beer & wine.

Had another excellent short stay last evening, including dinner. Staff were friendly and efficient, as usual. I would certainly recommend the Rose and Crown. Breakfast was first class, efficiently served by friendly staff.
