Had Sunday lunch here today, nice food (except for the watery swede), but £12.95 I thought was expensive for 1 course, never this expensive before the extension was built. Staff are very helpful and the view is brilliant.

We came on a gorgeous June day for lunch, and had a lovely view out to sea. We opted for the standard £12.95 menu, and had three delicious meals, hot, freshly cooked, and generous portions. The pork loin steak was enormous, the plaice and haddock were nicely cooked, and the vegetables were fresh ( apart from the peas). Desserts were... More

At the end of our long coastal walk we went to fairways for lunch. The special deal was for 2 courses. We had two mains, one starter and one dessert. The mussels for starter was simply delicious and the battered haddock came with wedges and mushy peas. The plaice was very nicely cooked and the vegetables, peas, carrots, long beans... More

The hotel is in a fabulous position right on the sea front, we had a lovely sea view from our bedroom which, was very clean and comfortable. There was no hair dryer in the room but a simple question at reception and the good... More

We spent two nights at Fairways thanks to a Groupon deal - £99 two nights b and b and evening meal one night! – the Hotel was in a pleasant location overlooking the sea , although our room didn't unless you really craned your neck out of the window…., that’s not a complaint as we didn't expect a sea view...

We have just spent a very pleasant weekend in Porthcawl. We were lucky as the weather was wall to wall sun. Fairways Hotel is a 3 star rating and that is what it is. It's in a great location opposite the sea and a lovely walk either along the promenade, through Coney Island, Trecco caravan park and around the headland... More

Went for a meal with friends. Had the special 12.95 early evening menu which is good value as the normal menu is expensive. However those of us who choose the mussels and the pork found the sauce to be very salty. There was no taste on my chicken. I dont know if I would go again.
