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....

Very disappointed with The Fairways today. 14 of us got together for a family meal and we left vowing never to go there again! The food took ages to arrive and when it finally came we ended up sending it back in disgust. Chicken kebabs burnt and dry, salmon totally overcooked and dry, steak like rubber, turkey cold. We arrived...

We went for a meal with friends and the 'service' we had was terrible. Very slow and inefficient. I had to send my meal back as it was cold. It was taken back to the kitchen and obviously just put in a microwave to reheat it! The time between collecting the plates and bringing out the next course was very...

Was a business trip, knew I wouldn't be there for long so I picked a cheap deal from the web and for £50, I got what I paid for. Arrived late, cold room, Luke warm water for bath and early breakfast and left. Wouldn't come back with family but I will say, awesome location and potential to be very good...
