Friendly helpful staff. Spacious clean room. Fab breakfast with a wide selection of cereals and unlimited hot drink also fresh juice.Acess to the room available until late (for those who like to go clubbing etc).ideal for couples looking for a little break or groups or friends visiting the area. Great value for money would highly recommend and definitely stay again.

First the good points. It's handy for the town and the food was simply fantastic, really nicely cooked and brilliantly presented (just wish I'd taken a photo of my cheesecake) The room was careworn and I simply couldn't get the shower between freezing and boiling. The bar/nightclub on the ground floor is the issue. It's an old building and to... More

Stayed here for one night. While visiting the pavilion theatre. It was good location for the pavilion and also the promenade and the shops. Our room was really nice, very spacious and clean. It was up quite a lot of stairs. Breakfast was good and also the meal we had in the evening. Staff were friendly. There is no parking... More

Myself and my family have ate in here around 5 times and have been happy with our meal and service each time. Prices are affordable and portions are generous. Good value all around. I recommend the lasagne. I have not stayed there as a hotel so cannot comment on that but for a meal or drink it's a good place.

Visited the Porthcawl Hotel for a meal. Excellent service and value for money food! The staff were pleasant and helpful, service was quick and the food was outstanding. The hotel also has rooms for rent but we only ate there so cannot comment on the hotel side.

Stayed here with my partner on a Friday night. It cost £60 which isn't too bad but I'd expected more for what I paid considering, let's just say I've had 10x better for that price! Where to start... the room was big but old fashion, the TV had 3 channels, the bed was so un comfy and made my bad... More

I stayed in the Porthcawl hotel to join the Dragon Ride in Wales. The room was basic and what you would expect at the price. The staff however were friendly and helpful. I was given helpful information about the hotel and the area at the front desk. Beth, the receptionist was very helpful and assisted me with an item that... More
