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

Very friendly and attentive staff. Room 4 was excellent, roomy and clean and tidy.Breakfast large choice including full English which was great. The Hotel is in the centre of Pothcawl, good walk available from the door to Rest Bay and beyond.

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...

A nice hotel with friendly staff, breakfast was good, but lacked a choice of eggs, the only problem, was the little things, rooms are a little tired, there was no shelf in the shower for your shower gel etc., the tv needs to be put on the wall so you can watch it while in bed, the toilet paper was...

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for 2 nights after receiving a Groupon voucher as a gift. We had booked a double room but were surprised to find 2 single beds in our room. The girl on reception was helpful and checked us into a different room, which had a lovely view of the sea. The room itself... More

I have frequented the Fairways numerous times over the years and like a good wine it improves with the passing of time. The fairly new conservatory type extension on the front offers a splendid place to dine with panoramic views out over the Bristol Channel. Food is always very good and the Head Chef, Warren, takes time to ensure that... More

Stayed here for one night and wasn't expecting much at all, just a place to sleep, I was pleasantly surprised! Excellent location on seafront, clean, modern, and easy to park. Nice bar area, rooms a little dated but not too much. Shower was rubbish, but overall I was very happy and will book The Fairways if I stay in Porthcawl... More
