My hubby and I had a spot of lunch here on Saturday. I had the chicken kebab which was very nice but would have liked some pitta bread to go with it. Hubby had the sharing starter which he enjoyed but said there could have been more choices of bread instead of 2 slices of french bread. Sat outside with... More

Booked a table for four for a family meal last night. Great deal of two courses for £12.95. The food was very tasty and arrived all at the same time. Service was good and the view was fabulous. The only thing that let the meal down was the ketchup. The food in itself was lovely but several of us asked... More

Had a family wedding here, which we stayed over for. Staff were excellent, rooms spacious and clean and prices are reasonable. We had a family room with a large bathroom, only downside was the shower was in the bath and not separate. Breakfast was a buffet style so you could eat as much as you wanted. The bar prices were...

We booked out the whole of the hotel for our relatives and friends to stay when we recently had our Wedding in Porthcawl. The staff were so helpful from the time of booking. We were given a tour of rooms by the head of cleaning. Even though some rooms are in need of a refurb the cleanliness was better than... More

I stayed here with my sister when we went to Porthcawl for family reasons. The hotel is situated right by the sea, in a very good location. The rooms are spacious, with lots of storage space and the staff were helpful. The hotel does not serve food on Sunday evenings, but the Atlantic Hotel next door does. When we did... More

Booked this on a Groupon offer including dinner and Breakfast. The pictures on Groupon do not do this place justice. Very nice room number 4 with corner views and sea from both corners. Comfy and practical room and had all you would need. The food was a stand out feature just excellent for both dinner and breakfast and good value... More

We all had different dishes but all were beautifully presented and delicious,very generous portions. The restaurant had a pleasant ambience and the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. I can't comment on the rooms as we just visited for an evening meal.

I stayed here on business for 3 nights. The staff were very friendly and tried very hard to be helpful. Unfortunately I was in room 10, directly above the kitchen, noisy extractor fan whirring away till 9 pm. The tv had no remote, although the guy did try to find me one it was to no avail. The room badly... More

Had another lovely meal at the fairways. Nice menu and friendly service - quick without rushing you. Only complaint is that there's no real kids menu. They're very accommodating and will cook all the usual kids things (fish and chips, sausage and mash etc) but the lack of menu doesn't help encouraging the kids to make a devision. Also kids...
