“Clean and tidy, friendly and welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2011

I was in Porthcawl on a business trip and stayed one night at Foam Edge. I tend to stay away from B&B's as I have come across so many bad ones. However, I am so please to have taken a chance on Foam Edge. It is very clean, and the owners are genuinely warm and welcoming. The room was large and airy with great views of the coast. Highly recommended!

We can only echo what the other reviewers have said.

Everything about the Foam Edge is top class, although the tariff is quite reasonable.

The room (named Hugo Bank) was excellent and even had it's own self-enclosed balcony overlooking the sea.
The service was excellent, the food equally so, and Helen and her family were very friendly and helpful.

Will recommend this 100%

We stayed for one night at the end of Feb '11. As other reviews have said, it is superb. Friendly and welcoming. Our room had a splendid sea view and we could sit on a covered balcony and enjoy the view. Breakfast very good. Pleased to strongly recommend.

Would highly recommend this B & B in Porthcawl. The room we had overlooked the sea and was absolutely beautiful. The bathroom was bigger than a lot of hotel bedrooms! Everywhere was very clean and our hosts were very friendly.

We stayed for 2 nights only. We booked our short break around an event at the theatre in Porthcawl, at which we met a number of different people we knew who were staying in various establishments around the area. After talking to them, we decided that we had definitely picked the best place to stay!

Would recommend for a restful, pleasant stay.
