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

We stayed in a nice and cosy room.. The bedroom looked a bit dated (the furniture and carpet) but it was spotless. The bathroom was surprisingly big (felt too big and empty) with plenty of got water. The best feature was the bed. It was really comfy and we once nearly missed the breakfast because we slept so well.

What a stunning hotel! Just returned from a night here and have no complaints. This hotel is in a stunning location and is well kept and clean. Our room was a good size and the breakfast included was lovely! We also had dinner in the orangerie there and was amazing value for money. We were informed it is undergoing improvements... More

First of all the service from all staff was great. The hotel has a great atmosphere and the bar etc has been refurbished and looks modern. The rooms unfortunately need a bit of updating, the rooms are adequate and the sea view is great. We did not have lunch or dinner at the hotel, but it looked good and was... 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...
