“Very pleasant and comfortable hotel with excellent food”
Reviewed July 9, 2010

Enjoyable family reunion spent at this hotel.
Comfortable beds and refurbished rooms facing the sea.
Food very good but slow service in the evenings but worth waiting for as freshly cooked.
Sunday lunch menu very good value and a good choice.
We hope to come again soon.

My Wife and I live local to this hotel and decided to visit there for a meal for my 66th Birthday, I had booked well in advance and arrived on time, we were shown to our seats at 7.30pm, the bad service then became apparent because it was 7.50 before a waitress came and asked if we wanted a drink, we waited for another 15 min before the drinks arrived, in total it was over two and a half hours before they served us our two course meal.

The meal was very dry and for the price charged was very dissapointing, we were charged over £9.00 for two glasses of very cheap french wine, the total bill being over £45.00.

I do not mind paying for good service and good food! This hotel did not give either, even when I complained to the barman who took our money he was not interested.

This would be the last place in porthcawl I would ever choose for a meal again.

What a pleasure to meet such pleasant and helpful staff. We arrived in transit to the ferry looking for an overnight stay and some food. The restaurant was about to close. They opened it again for us, provided a great meal and a room at a reduced rate. What a service. That's the way to run a business. The neighbouring hotel could provide no food and a far more expensive room. OH, and the full English breakfast was first class.

Hotel average to poor rooms as stated not clean and cheaply decorated.
It would benice to raise a smile from the staff but it seems indifference is the order of the day.
Restaurant employes students who try but have not been trained - it may be necessary to take your own corkscrew as the wine we ordered did not have a screw top and it was a while before they were able to open it.
Had been before and it was fine but it seems they no longer wish to maintain the standard just take your money.
Am now looking for somewhere else to stay in locality as the area is beautiful

Stayed one night at the Atlantic and was allocated the smallest room I have ever slept in in a hotel, even taking into account bargain hotels in Paris and London.

The bathroom was also tiny and with the door open you couldn't physically get around the bed as the door blocked the way through. The shower was so small that to stand in it and not be pressed against the glass door, it meant you were behind the flow of water from the shower head! All this was in addition to the regular noise of what I presume was the pump to provide water pressure.

The bed was pretty poor and breakfast was nothing to shout about either. My colleague had a much bigger room which was at the same room rate so that made it even more annoying.

Suffice to say I won't be returning, however, I would strongly advise that anyone booking a room asks for a large room to avoid the one I had.

We had a weekend break at the hotel in October and were extremely happy. The room was lovely and we had an excellent Sunday lunch. My husband said that it was the best breakfast that he has ever had in a hotel.
