I rather liked this hotel, its my sort of place, but judging by the other reviews its not for everyone. The negatives are that there's no parking, I paid to be in the car park, but should have read the reviews recommending somewhere close. The warren of corridors is also true and some did look a little shabby. Also there's a gym on the first floor, which does play loud music, but I was unaware of it being on the third floor. The bar only serves keg beer and the breakfast was just ok (although with not earing pork, I cannot comment on the bacon or sausages).
My room was big, clean and reasonably well appointed, certainly good value for the £40 I paid for it. The bar at night is great fun and very friendly, not least due to Beth, the lady with the red hair that other reviewers complained about.
Other guests, out of season, tend to be contractors, taking advantage of the special rates. When I stayed there was a very funny group from Ellesmere Port (called the Scoucers by the locals). I very nearly got talked into going clubbing in Swansea with them.
I've stayed in Porthcawl a few times, but am so gald that I've found the Porthcawl Hotel as previously I've found the town a little boring, the Porthcawl Hotel is anything but boring.
