We have found the Jewel in the Crown at Foam Edge Porthcawl. Had a lovely peaceful two night stay here with my husband & we were given a very warm welcome from Helen when we arrived. The views across the sea are breathtaking & I would recommend the breakfasts which are superb, especially Helen's yogurt surprises! The bedroom is tastefully...

What a lovely guest house, our stay was most enjoyable with good food and hospitality. We loved our spacious room with a sea view and big bathroom with a walk in shower. The decor throughout was eye catching so much so we have just painted our conservatory with Farrow and Ball and changed the decorative items. Thanks Helen for your...

My husband and I spent 2 nights here in July celebrating 20 years of marriage and we enjoyed every moment. Our room was large and beautifully decorated with a balcony which gave us stunning views over the Bristol Channel. The en suite was gorgeous with twin sinks and walk in shower.

Helen was very welcoming and generous with her time, explaining various aspects of our accommodation and information about the town. The room we had was decorated with a clever eye, creating an elegant, yet uncluttered, relaxing style. Overlooking the esplanade the room had the added feature of a lovely little sun room for sitting. Breakfast was delicious and the dining...
