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.

Have been here for many fantastic meals, recently popped in for a sunny pint but ended up sitting al fresco and had some wonderful shish kebabs, tea time in the sun with a wonderful view - proper porthcawl.

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

Hotel looks lovely from the outside with a beautiful recently added conservatory overlooking the sea, spacious seating and huge gorgeous chandeliers, but then we went to our room. The rest of the hotel could do with a total revamp its very dated. On booking a few weeks ago we asked for a nice double room, we were given a family... More

Booked to eat here with our family which included 6 adults and two small children. On arrival there was no one there to greet guests and we had to approach a member of staff to be seated. Every member of staff looked stressed and didn't seem to interact with the guests. The adults ordered the 3 courses for £20 which... More

Had a lovely overnight stay here earlier on in the week. We weren't disappointed. Our room had a sea view and was comfortable, quiet and spacious. All staff were friendly and there was a lovely outside courtyard to enjoy drinks while you watched the sun set. Breakfast was plentiful and staff were professional and pleasant. The hotel is set slightly... More

The staff here were lovely but everything else was well below par for the price (£100+ per night) the rooms were shabby, curtains didn't close properly leaving big gaping gaps for light through the night, bathroom desperately needs a clean and a paint, bed was two singles pushed together, tv on it's last legs, carpet dirty and in dire need...

We stayed for one night here. First thing we had to find staff to book in as there was no one in reception. Our room was quite good (Room1) facing the ocean and quite large. The bathroom was exceptional and big enough to hold a party in! Bed was very comfortable. Internet was good. We did not eat there at... More

I visited in March 2016 with family for my 30th birthday. Sorry for the list, but here goes... They booked us in under the wrong name, there was NO beer, they didn't have what I ordered for starter or main course, no wine list so the waitress wrote one down on a bit of dirty note paper (complete with spelling...
