Such a lovely warm and welcoming family run business. The owner is amazing and so helpful. You get to eat breakfast with a view of the sea. There's a walking path you can access and you get to take in some lovely views. If you have a car it's very close to get to the center where you can buy...

I booked this b&b as a birthday weekend away. I booked through groupon. It was booked as b&b with free welcoming drink. We arrived an hour early and checked in. We were greeted by a friendly man and allowed to check in early. Check in was quick and easy. We wasn't offered our free drink. We were shown to our...

Booked a 4 night stay and was not dissappointed at all. We had a lovely seaview room with a balcony which looked on to Porth Beach. The Owner and staff were exceptionally friendly. Enjoyed the get togethers and drinks downstairs each evening with the other guests and owner. Great breakfasts, lovely view from dining room. We stayed here in September...

Went up to my room with "stunning seaside views", only to find myself looking at a collection of sheds, the car park and the "valley views" (basically a caravan park). Went back down to complain, apparently the Wowcher deal meant I would need to have paid extra for the advertised "stunning seaside views", this was a complete lie to cover...

I am not one for giving bad reviews unless justified but this hotel royally messed up my dad's 60th birthday weekend then ignored all correspondence since refusing to acknowledge us. I booked a 2 night break through Wowcher as a surprise and when my dad & his partner turned up all seemed fine at first (although they were not offered...

Booked with a wowcher code direct by phone. Arrived today to find the door locked. When it was eventually opened we were told there was no booking. However, they said they had a few rooms. We were shown after repeatedly asking to see the room, to a tiny, dingy ground floor double room. When we said it wasn't suitable we...

Stayed for two nights and were made to feel very welcome. The room was well equipped and clean, breakfast was delicious and served in a very relaxed manner. The staff realised that we were celebrating our anniversary and a card and chocolates were left in our room. A lovely relaxing break.

I booked a superior room for my boyfriend's birthday with a great view of the beautiful Porth beach and we were not disappointed in the least! There were chocolates & a birthday card waiting for him and the staff could not do enough for us. Very friendly and very clean. We will definitely return with our daughter next year! Dining...

We booked this via a living social deal and when we called to book we were persuaded to upgrade to get the date we wanted. So say for the view! All I can say is I don't know what type of room we would have got if we didn't upgrade! The whole hotel is dated (stylish in the 60-70s!) brown...
