On a recent visit to meet with family who were staying in Porthcawl we needed a place to accomodate 6 adults , 1 toddler and a baby. This fitted the bill.

Ideal for a budget friendly, short overnight stay with friends. Rooms are dated but clean and staff were friendly and welcoming. This is a functional hotel and a good place to use as a base for nights out in Porthcawl, Cardiff or Swansea.

Well, it serves a purpose. It has beds, bathrooms and a bar. It also has a gym. However, the beds are uncomfortable. The beer in the bar is very poor.

Hotel was OK but needs updating room we stayed in was on the top floor which felt more private, bath edge was too high I had to ask my fella to help me out of it! Room was paid for by my sister for my birthday I don't think I would've been happy to pay so much myself though

Very nice. Staff were great, thoroughly enjoyed will definitely return. The room was very basic, and the only downfall would be no lifts to the bedrooms, so people with no good mobility could not stay there.

First thing is first the staff are Brilliant, very friendly, very helpful and its they've given this place any extra star from me. The hotel part comes a clear second best to a very busy fitness club. The rooms are basic but clean. The noise from the fitness club ends around 8pm and starts around 6.30am. Very clear to me...

Room was clean but badly needed some renovation. The bedding had seen better days and pillows needed replacing. The bathroom was old fashioned even carpet up side of bath panel. You could here traffic doing their deliveries early in morning. The cooked breakfast was spare a child size portion.
