“Great as always”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

A warm welcome always awaits as you arrive at this great place to stay, convenient for all Porthcawl has to offer with the sea front within sight of the front door and many eating establishments within a few minutes walk. I will be back again.

If you ever come to Porthcawl or South Wales this is the place to stay! Lisa is fantastic and truly a blessing!! I quickly liken to her from welcome we received upon our arrival. We came in a set of 3 couples to attend a wedding and she truly made us laugh, made us feel welcome and was very informative on Porthcawl and surrounding areas . Each of us had lovely things to say about our stay at Marllew Guest House. The rooms where clean and the beds are more comfortable than the ones we have at home!! Breakfast was prepared at the time we wanted and was really delicious and kept us full on our 5 hour journey home.

The best thing of all is that Lisa will go beyond any needs you may have like when my silly husband left his dress shirt at home and she was so kind enough to lend her husbands!! Lisa , thank you again for our wonderful stay! I truly recommend staying at Marllew Guest House for the cleanliness of the rooms, comfortable beds, great breakfast, and of course Lisa!! The only thing is I wished we would have stayed longer!! Thank you again Lisa!!!

First of all Lisa, Many thanks for a fantastic stay- sincerely Kay and Alan.

We have stayed at the Marllew this being our sixth year and looking forward to our next.
Nothing is too much trouble for Lisa, she is always so thoughtful and obliging, and there is always a warm welcome which makes our stay so pleasant and relaxed.
Her full freshly cooked english breakfast is second to none,with everything being so spotlessly clean.
Marllew is also so conveniently located, being just around the corner from the famous Porthcawl Pavillion and opposite the sea front.
Most important if you need a Taxi, LEE'S TAXI'S are right on your doorstep too.
Lisa and Lee are husband and wife, a lovely young couple with a grown up family and the making of Marllew Guest House.
We will reccomend the Marllew to all our friends and family, and really looking forward to our next stay.

My partner and myself had our first stay at the Marllew Guest House a few weeks ago, and I have to say what a pleasurable experience! The room was light and airy, spotlessly clean and had a nice modern touch. The breakfast was delicious and the reception we received from the owners was amazing. The location of the Guest House is just a stones throw from the beach and local down, with all amenities close by..Thank you for a lovely experience, a home away from home!

I have stayed at the Marllew on many occasions and will be back there soon.
The rooms are excellent value for money and you are guaranteed a warm welcome every time.
The guest house is a stones throw from the sea front and there are many eating establishments within easy walking distance.
Nothing is too much trouble for your hosts, they will make your stay here enjoyable.
