We stayed at this hotel for two nights over a weekend. I will try to be fair in this review and point out any good points even though the overall experience was grim. Good location. Reasonably clean. Good views of the coastline. However.... Noisy plumbing (when anyone else turned on a tap/ flushed their loo the noise was loud in... More

I tend to shy away from hotels for lunch as they are generally poor value for money. Not so in this case. 5 star throughout - service, quality and most surprisingly, value. The menu is not as varied as some, but we had the cheese and onion on brown and chicken and chorizo, also on brown. Very generous amount of... More

Despite the beautiful surroundings, I would not come to Fairways for a meal again. My starter of soup was inedible as I could only taste salt and the meal was nothing special, peas were served cold and green beans not cooked so again inedible. £12.95 for two courses is not a bad price but I have had better meals in...

We spent a short weekend there. Nothing special, room was ok and clean. The bathroom felt a bit used. The brakfast was ok but it was hard to get the waitresses attention for extra coffee or tea. They wanted to charge us for the sea view room while the room was pointing the other direction, but at the end we... More

Portcawl is a very beautiful place indeed! Beautiful esplanade for an evening walk or an early morning jogging tour. The Fairways hotel is nice, has a marvellous view, friendly staff, neat and tidy. Large room and bathroom! A good place to stat when in Portcawl.

Has been said before £110 does seem a bit steep for a privately owned sea front hotel that needs some TLC. That aside, service was good. Check in efficient. Barman booked taxi for us despite the first couple of numbers being unavailable. Our twin (as requested) room was spacious at front with large shower room and sea view. Windows on... More
