“Fab Guest House”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

I have just spent the week end at Marllew Guest House and must say what a lovely stay we had. Lisa the owner was really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spotless and breakfast great, and location to the seafronf just right! -- what more does anyone need!Thanks for a lovely stay.

My 92 year old mum Lisa is staying for her 2 week summer holiday at the excellent Marllew Guest House, as she has every year for the last 4 years.

The ideal position of the guest house means that the sea front, the pavillion and several cafes
and restaurants are all a short walk away.

Her room is spacious, beautifully decorated, and quiet.
The food and drink is all really delicious.
Her hosts Lisa and Lee are very friendly, helpful and entertaining.

You could not find a better guest house in Porthwcawl and in addition it's great value for money.

My mother and I were visiting relatives and stayed at the Marllew Guest House. It was easy to find from the bus stop and as soon as we met Lisa, we knew that we'd have a great stay.

Lisa was friendly, welcoming and advised us of the best places to go. We tried The Rock Inn and the food was good value for money!

We had a cooked breakfast every morning (tut tut - well it was a holiday!) and had a lovely chat with Lisa about anything and everything. She really is a lovely lady. The Guest House is literally a 2 minute walk from the seafront, has clean immaculate rooms, are very reasonably priced and the beds are really comfy. We really couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay.

I would thoroughly recommend Marllew Guest House and would not hesitate in staying there in the future ... provided there are some rooms left after all the great - well deserved - reviews!!

Thank you Lisa and Lee for a lovely, welcoming experience.

Warm wishes and lots of luck!!

Deborah & Mary xx

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the house are cooler and quieter, but the front are sunny and bright!

What a find the Marllew Guest house was, we knew as soon as we walked through the door that we had made a great choice.
The room was perfect,plenty of tea and coffee, immaculate!! and spotlessly clean with en-suite and such a comfortable bed.
lee and lisa are about the best hosts you could wish for, the information and help they provide is second to none,with lee running a taxi service he knows his way around porthcawl.
Breakfast is amazing, full english and very tasty, this sets you up perfectly for the day.
When we visit porthcawl again we know exactly where we will stay.
It would be our pleasure to recommend the marllew Guest House to visitors going to porthcawl,southwales. They would truely experience welsh hospitality at its best. Hope to return in the near future Many Thanks to lee and lisa

i stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting friends in wales. From the second i walked through the door to the moment i left Lisa was such a warm friendly and brilliant host! couldnt of asked for any better!
The rooms were immaculately clean and the breakfast was amazing, didnt need or want to eat anywhere else. With only a few feet walk from the beach and such reputable service from the guesthouse, i will be staying here again unequivocally on my next visit to wales!
Thanks Lisa for such a lovely stay, was a pleasure to say the least.
