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...

Freezing cold room. Staff - youngsters in the main who finished their conversation before checking me in on arrival and I had to ask twice. No lights working in the bathroom - was told no one could change a bulb or get me a bulb to change it myself for either of the light fittings. Burned food. Luke warm water...

Visited for Sunday lunch but was disappointed with quality of food. The restaurant offers two sittings and despite being there for the first at 12.00 the roast potatoes looked to be reheats and there wasn't a full range of vegetables available. Probably of more concern was that the sole hand dryer in the mens toliets wasn't working (and strangely enough...

Our room, no. 5, was roomy but badly in need of updating. There was no heating in room even after turning up radiator thermostat, which was not a good start for mid- November on a cold windy night. We had to switch on an electric convector heater. The furnishings and carpet looked much in need of renewal; headboard on bed...

Not knowing the area we decided on this hotel as it overlooked the sea and indicated it was recently renovated. It hadn't been renovated in this millennium. It is a worn outdated hotel with potential. Our room was spacious and bright and overlooked the sea but that is where the good part ended. The bed was as hard as rock...
