Foamedge Guesthouse
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Porthcawl
Reviewed 16 December 2012 via mobile

Lovely rooms, great hosts and fab breakfast. Would not hesitate to recommend this B&B jewel to anyone and we will definitely return as and when looking to stay for a night or two in Porthcawl! Helen went out of her way to find a hangover cure, and the Foamedge special was really good.

The ratings on here say it all. My wife and I not knowing about this classy Guest House tried to get booked into a nearby Hotel - lucky us that the Hotel was full. We found this lovely place to stay, Albeit for one night because we were seeing a show.

Having stayed in 5* hotels and in some cases being disappointed, I would not hesitate to stay here again, and have no fear in recommending it to anyone who likes a cut above the rest.

Our host Helen was lovely and helpful. The location of the home was sensational. We had a wonderful ocean view. The room was beautifully decorated and well appointed. The bed was so cosy. One of the best B & B s we have stayed at!

We were very impressed with Foam Edge, situated on the seafront in Porthcawl with stunning views from our room which was named Tusker Rock. We had an excellent night sleep in the super kingsize bed, the room itself was very quiet and had many thoughtful little extras. The house is tastefully decorated throughout with attention to detail. There is plenty to choose from on the breakfast menu, must try the Foam Edge special. We were pleasantly surprised with the choice of restaurants within walking distance, it's a 5 minute walk into the town.
Helen was very welcoming and made us feel at home instantly. We will be returning and highly recommend this spotless, well run Guest House.

I was in Porthcawl on a business trip and stayed one night at Foam Edge. I tend to stay away from B&B's as I have come across so many bad ones. However, I am so please to have taken a chance on Foam Edge. It is very clean, and the owners are genuinely warm and welcoming. The room was large and airy with great views of the coast. Highly recommended!

We can only echo what the other reviewers have said.

Everything about the Foam Edge is top class, although the tariff is quite reasonable.

The room (named Hugo Bank) was excellent and even had it's own self-enclosed balcony overlooking the sea.
The service was excellent, the food equally so, and Helen and her family were very friendly and helpful.

Will recommend this 100%
