I've just had a midweek overnight stay at this hotel with my mother and was very disappointed. On arrival, check in is not till 4pm, the heating was on full blast and the room was extremely stuffy. I had booked a twin but the room was made up as a double, when i contacted reception I was told they would... More

I stayed here for two nights with a few friends and we all enjoyed the experience. The conservatory restaurant managed to seat 20 of us and the food and service was excellent. The bedrooms are functional but mine had a good sea view. Breakfast was good and the staff were very helpful. Price was reasonable for a sea front hotel... More

Outstanding!!! Reserved a table for Sunday Lunch. On arrival we were shown to our table which was in the conservatory, calming decor with a nice sea view. The staff were friendly, professional and the service was second to none. The food was tasty with a very good selection. I would definately recommend the lunch, and we are looking forward to... More

Stayed here recently for one night while attending a concert in Porthcawl. Had an evening meal which was very good, staff pleasant and obliging, rooms clean and comfortable if a little dated. Nice breakfast and all in all a pleasant , if short stay.

We reserved a table for Sunday lunch and because the conservatory was fully booked, the dining room was available. We were happy to accept and made a booking for the 2pm sitting. (they have two sittings one at 12pm and one at 2pm). We have eaten here several times but not since the conservatory was opened. The dining room looked... More

If you want a decent meal in Porthcawl, this is the place, however as a hotel, the rooms, whilst clean and well presented all suffer the same issue, the walls are paper thin and the showers are useless. It is inexcusable that hotels in 2014 have showers this bad. I have has two or three rooms here on previous visits... More

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
