A group of us stayed here for just one night, when visiting Porthcawl, for a friends wedding. The house is lovely! The rooms spacious and well equipped. Anette was very warm friendly and accommodating. She provided us with a fantastic banquet of a breakfast. I would highly recommend Olivia house it was fabulous!

Stayed at Olivia's House whilst going to a wedding at The Pavilion, which was literally round the corner, very convenient. We were met by Annette, who was very welcoming, and taken up to our room which was a front room and beautifully furnished.
