We enjoyed our stay at The Gateway very much. It was very central to the beach and the town. We don't have a car, so location is very important to us. We really appreciated the hamper, what a lovely addition to save rushing out for food. We loved the seaside theme and the fact we were able to bring our dog too. Kay and her hubby were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely book again. Thank you Kay.
Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Very friendly and accommodating. Welcome pack very good. The best one we have had in a rental property. Lovely beaches which the dog loved and plenty of lovely walks close by. Margam park and Kendrick nature reserve well worth a visit. We thought Porthcawl was a bit run down and not a lot going for it. Enjoyed our week but could have done with better weather.
Lots of space for a decent home away from home. However,there was a strong smell of damp and dust;characterised by thick dust underneath the living room sofa and the bed in the master bedroom. As a result,night time was rather difficult to myself and the kids as we had bad allergic reactions to the conditions. The pillows in the master bedroom were sweat stained, and the linen in the same bedroom was rundown. Otherwise,we enjoyed the nice shower over bath.
When we arrived we had a very warm welcome by the ower Kay and a lovely welcome Basket. The apartment is very clean and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay and will certainly return to "The Gateway!".
Fantastic stay - our second time. Plenty of room in the apartment, beds comfortable, fantastic new bathroom. Of course the welcome hamper is one of the best touches which is so appreciated. Very welcoming and friendly. Right next door to Trecco Bay and all their facilities (open to the public), within walking distance to Porthcawl sea front and the shows, all level and no road in sight, and the town only 5 minutes further on. Apart from Porthcawl, the beautiful valleys just 20 mins drive and even Cardiff Bay just 30 mins. Barry is on the way back from Cardiff Bay and well worth a visit if you are fans of Gavin and Stacey! Shop at the local Coop just 200yds away if you want to eat in - Chinese takeaway right opposite, and the excellent Beales chip shop just quarter mile down the road. If you are still not sure, compare prices with a caravan next door in Trecco Bay - you will be pleasantly surprised!
Lovely apartment, very spacious nicely decorated and a new bathroom too. A wonderful welcoming basket with eggs , bacon , sausage and milk in the fridge to get you going. Located on a quiet road 5 minutes walk from the beach and plenty of green at the back to walk the dog.
Had a lovely stay once again, accommodation spacious very clean central to everything owner very friendly will definitely be back
