Someone has started this venue under the Pier Hotel but it's really a stand alone cafe so is in the wrong place, (comments on 'cleanliness' / 'rooms' etc. will be largely irrelevant if you're not staying here). Gave this a try as someone has been putting lots of 5-Star reviews on here, (someone who has, presumably, never had a really... More

As I stated in my last review, when my Son and I were in the area again, I treated him to the Pier Breakfast. I have the mini pier as I find the big breakfast is too much for a mid forty year old! He couldn't believe the size and quality of the meal! He phoned me the next day... More

We stayed with relatives in Porthcawl, they took us to The Pier for breakfast and it was the best full Welsh breakfast ever! The staff are really friendly and helpful, they treat you like a friend. If I had to get somewhere to stay in Porthcawl, this would be top of my list.

Good comfortable clean rooms. Lots with sea views. Occasional shower issues can be resolved by using shared bathrooms. All rooms are ensuite though. Prices negotiable, dependent on length of stay etc. Staff are helpful, especially the owner and his wife. Food available every day.

went there for lunch. Excellent food, quick service and they were happy to accommodate our 3 year old by making him a drink and charging less. Very clean and welcoming. Will definitely use again. The staff were extremely friendly and they even provided toys and colouring stuff for the children

My Wife and I have been visiting Porthcawl recently and have had two Sunday Lunches here! On both occasions they have been excellent in quality/quantity. Do yourself a favour if your in the area on a Sunday, have a treat. Also I can recommend the breakfast! We will be seeing you regularly from now on!

My subject says it all! The mini pier breakfast is fantastic, and credit to the little lady chef that cooks it! Always hot and well presented. Like I said earlier, it gets better on each visit, like Andrea!
