“Perfect location for the Pavilion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

My wife and I had tickets for a Johnny Cash tribute act that was appearing at the Pavilion. Despite living less than a 30 minute drive away we decided to stay overnight at the Marllew. It was a good decision. Lisa greeted us at the door with a warm welcome. The room was spotless and had a nice window overlooking the street. We chose the Marllew due to the reviews on Tripadvisor and can only repeat what everybody else has written. Perfect place to get ready for our night out and take the 3 minute walk to the pavilion. Lisa asked us what time we wanted breakfast and that was a nice touch. After our perfectly cooked brekkie we left with full intention of returning the next time we get tickets for a show. Thanks Lisa, a perfect stay .

Room Tip: ask for room 3.

Stayed one night 14/09/13 at the Marllew and was like home from home. Lisa is the most welcoming host who will go all out to ensure a comfortable stay.
Rooms were immaculate, fab location with a taxi service to hand if required.
Had planned on going out for dinner but Stayed in our room with a takeaway instead.
Will definatly be going back, thank you x

We stayed here mid-August to attend a wedding nearby. The guest house is in a v.good location and within short walking distance from the town and seafront . Lisa gave us such a warm and friendly welcome on arrival and cooked a delicious breakfast the following morning! Our room was lovely, modern and honestly had the most comfortable of beds! Thank you for a lovely stay Lisa.

Stayed here for bank holiday weekend. Well we could not have asked for anything more! Our room during our stay was room two! WOW, I noticed a splash of Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen.Class! Breakfast was "A"class and so was the service. Lisa & Lee are there for your every need, nothing was to much trouble. Would not hesitate in highly recommending this little to gem to family and friends. Be back soon.

My husband and I stayed here on Friday 23 August 2013 with two friends of ours. On entry the hotel was quiet. Lisa appeared and showed us to our room. The room was absolutely lovely, very clean and didnt want for anything. Bed very comfortable as was the whole room and bathroom en suite. Price (which was an excellent rate) included breakfast the next morning, cerial, juice, full english. All I can say is it is the perfect place to stay in Porthcawl. Round the corner from the Pavillion. Excellent if you are seeing a show in the Pavillion or even the Hi Tide near Coney Beach. We are already planning our next trip! Thank you Lisa you made us feel very welcome and we would not hesitate to stay at your lovely guest house again. We will be recommending you to our family and friends.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

My fiancée made a mad decision to stay in a hotel or B&B in Porthcawl. I booked The Marllew Guest House from reading the reviews on Google and Trip Advisor. The place is clean, the service is amazing and the rooms are comfortable.
I was pleasantly surprised how modern the room we stayed in for the £££.
It's just a few minutes walk to the fun fair, with plenty of pubs along the route.
The owner was very nice and laid back in her approach and made my fiancée and myself very comfortable.
It's well worth the stay
