If you visit Porthcawl like I do on a regular basis, visit the Pier for the mini Pier breakfast, it's the best you'll have in this area. Always fresh, hot and quality and quantity are excellent. I can now say the attractive slim blonde lady is now much more friendly since my last review! Keep up the standard!

When I'm in porthcawl I always go here for their breakfast. I have the mini pier which is adequate for me but they also have the pier which is a monster! It's always fresh, hot and tasty! Only one small comment. The attractive Lady who appears to be some authority there could be more friendly to a regular customer and... More

We arrived in porthcawl on 15.09.2013 and were blown into the bar and asked for a room for the night. We were given the key to room one,after walking up the stairs through the cloying smell of chip fat(the cafe kitchen is on the first floor and the industrial toaster and black bags on the landing.)We arrived at our room....

As a traveling nurse I need somewhere to get some sleep during the day between my night shifts, when away from west wales where I live. It was easy to book over the phone and I found it to be a clean tidy room with a nice en-suite. I was given a room with a sea view which was lovely... More

Me and my partner decided to simply pop into a hotel on a whim after a day in Porthcawl. We eventually managed to find the entrance, through a very dark looking bar. We were "greeted" by a girl behind the bar with a "yea?" Great start. She was helpful after we asked to swap rooms,seeing as the first one we... More

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago. The first impression you get is that the place is run down. I parked at the back on the pavement due to a lack of parking. I walked through the back and into the bar which is at the bottom of the hotel. I was given my room key and went up... More
