Stayed for 2 nights while visiting with large group of friends for a special show at the Pavilion. Very lucky to get in as I left it slightly late in booking after cancelling elsewhere because of poor reviews. Lovely décor, and clean and comfortable en-suite room. Very pleasant and friendly hosts. Perfectly cooked full English breakfast....what more can you ask... More

My partner and I were in Porthcawl visiting family. We researched quite a few guest houses before we arrived and have no doubt we picked the best of the best. The owners are lovely people, Incredibly friendly and attentive. The rooms are clean and quiet and included wireless internet which was important to us. The breakfast is delicious and made-to-order.... More

Anyway, we walked down the next street and knocked on the door of Protea and they had a room available for us. Elaine and Derek were very welcoming and... More

This is a very busy B&B area and this one is worth a try. If you like Porthcawl you could well be back for further visits. The car parking is on the street but this is the same for the other B&Bs too and you should find somewhere without too much trouble. My wife and I stayed just the one... More
