Great spot to stay in Porthcawl. Easy parking and free. Welcomed well by receptionist and quickly went through formalities. Room not available until 3pm which is a throw back to the 1970's and not heard of in modern hotels but hey ho. Corridors were somewhat under whelming enroute to my room which had a sea view. OK the sea view...

Room was mainly clean although my wife noticed hair on the sink pedestal. The whole place seems dated. The bar does not open during the day which was a pity as we fancied a drink after the journey. You have to pay extra for a sea view, fair enough, we didn't and had a bin area come rear car park...

Stopped overnight at the Seabank on a weekend coach trip. A tired and dated hotel where the food reminded us of school dinners. Our room was clean and the bed comfortable but the bathroom door didn't shut properly as it was obviously a recycled outside door that was rotten at the bottom. The shower bar was rusty an there were...

PLEASE BE AWARE THE LIFT DOES NOT WORK! We were on the third floor and the stairs are a killer! Staff were very excellent, being very friendly and helpful. It's certainly worth upgrading your room to a sea view because it is worth every penny! It was a shame about the food though, in fairness you get enough but the...

Dear Roy, Thank you for your Feedback. I can confirm that Lift is working and has been since beginning of April. That was a part of our Refurbishment project and not a broken Lift. Unfortunately the installation took much longer than expected, but it was beyond our control. I can only apologise for the Inconvenience caused, but all of our...

Stayed here for 5 days last week on a coach trip. It was a mystery tour with Alfa and I did not find out where I was going until two weeks before. I would not have chosen this as a destination as there is not much to visit in the area. We did go to Swansea and Cardiff but these...
