We made a last minute decision to travel to porthcawl and looked for somewhere to stay that could offer a sea view. We were over the moon when we arrived at the fairways hotel at how close the sea was and how lovely the view from the room was. As it was Valentine's night we wandered the streets but couldn't...

My husband booked this hotel as a treat for my Birthday , I was very dissapointed. Greeted by a blocked drain full of cigarettes at the entrance.Our room door did not open , we had to go and tell reception twice until a member of staff came. Shabby curtains in the room with missing hooks. One window had a broken...

Living locally I have often sat outside the Fairways for a glass in the summer but haven't eaten here for quite a while. My bestie and I had been for a walk along the common and called in for a Hot Chocolate. We decided to have a light snack too. Good choice of sandwiches and baguette but we decided to...

My mum and I stayed here over the weekend as its location was good to use as a base for spending time with family and friends. Being from Porthcawl originally we've been aware of the hotel for years and the website boasts of its extensive upgrade so figured it was worth a try. I'm going to start with the positives;...

Plenty of choices in Porthcawl for accommodation and this hotel is not a bad choice. Nothing special but a pleasant location on the sea front with large okay rooms. The restaurant, although quiet was surprisingly good and I had an excellent meal there.

We had an 80th birthday party here. The food was excellent and it was a perfect venue with wonderful sea views. The staff were so helpful and the coffee was amazing too! I'd thoroughly recommend The Fairways for any special celebration.

Stayed here while visiting friends had seaview room, great view of the estuary. The orangery a most pleasant place for meals, breakfast especially was good and found staff very accommodating. All in all good value for the money, would stay again.

We visited Fairways tonight for a break from cooking! The orangery at the front is lovely and very inviting. The chandeliers make the room feel very opulent and the seats comfortable. Since we were there within the hours we opted for the two course special. The meals were really tasty and plentiful. It was our first visit here and we...

Just had an appalling meal in the fairways hotel in porthcawl . Absolutely disgraceful- cold vegetables, burnt meat and inedible food. On top of this the service was poor as it was very understaffed. Having just read trip advisor I would not have booked for 14 of us to go here and I certainly would not recommend it to anyone....
