A tastefully presented guest house near the Porthcawl sea front. Helpful staff. We had a lovely room and there was plenty of hot water. A perfectly good continental breakfast is available on a self-service basis.

My mum and myself stayed at Butterfly guesthouse for 2 nights. Rebecca the host was so welcoming. The place itself is immaculate and beautifully decorated. The bed was super comfortable and I had great nights sleep. Rebecca was so accommodating and helpful. Great location central to everything in Porthcawl. Communication was clear and prompt. I wouldn't hesitate to return and would highly recommend anyone else staying there! Thank you Rebecca. Lucy and maybe

Butterfly guesthouse is porthcawls hidden gem it’s absolutely stunning floor to ceiling. Not only is the hotel gorgeous so is the location right near the sea front in porthcawl. Becky the owner was so lovely and welcoming and nothing was to much trouble. The room was stunning, everything you could need and more. Little extra touches like coffee machine in the room beds super comfy. The room was spotless! We stayed for two night and definitely will be returning! This place is absolute steal for the price and it the perfect place for a getaway break! 100% recommend!
