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

Stayed here like many others whilst on a friend's stag. The hotel and bar are run by all the staff so there was a little bit of a wait at the reception to be seen to. The staff however are friendly and helpful when it came to giving parking tips etc. The hotel is very tired, however I imagine it... More

The Porthcawl Hotel is ok for stag and hen do's in the local area but, it isn't good for anything more than that. The staff are friendly and the rooms are basic, but I wouldn't recommend it for anything other than this. Dated and basic but good for basic amenities.

Stayed for 2 nights over the bank holiday weekend. Read the reviews so we were not expecting anything special, The plus points. Breakfast was good. Staff were friendly. That's where it ends. The room we were given room 303 was in serious need of updating and a deep clean. The bathroom in particular was filthy grime over the bath carpets... More

I stayed here on a stag do with a large group. Yes the hotel is very dated and rooms are very worn but for the price its fine. The staff more than make up for the old fittings, they couldn't be more welcoming or helpful, especially the lady who was pregnant and still going the extra mile for us. Its... More
