What others have said about the Marllew Guest House

“Absolutely stellar B&B”

I was visiting RNLI friends in Porthcawl and found Marllew. Lisa the proprietor is fabulous: she's kind, helpful, accommodating and makes a wonderful full English breakfast. My room was great; clean, well furnished and well presented. The bed was excellent. WiFi works great. Modern bathroom. It's on a nice quiet street a couple of minutes from the Promenade. About as perfect as you could wish for, and at a very very reasonable price.

“Fantastic service and very clean!”

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting friends in Wales. From the second I walked through the door to the moment I left, Lisa was such a warm, friendly and brilliant host! I couldn't have asked for any better! The rooms were immaculately clean and the breakfast was amazing - didnt need or want to eat anywhere else! With only a few feet walk from the beach and such reputable service from the guesthouse, I will be staying here again unequivocally on my next visit to Wales! Thanks Lisa for such a lovely stay, was a pleasure to say the least.

“A warm welcome awaits you everytime”

Great location for the town/beach/funfair all within a very short walk - you have the beach at the end of the street. The rooms are very clean, fresh and well maintained. We have stayed in a few rooms as we come back twice a year for events in Porthcawl. Lisa always has a warm welcome for you, very helpfull and charming lady who cooks a first class breakfast - yum yum! We recommend the Marllew Guest House for a short or long stay in Porthcawl.

“A friendly, welcoming, brilliant guest house”

What a find the Marllew Guest house was, we knew as soon as we walked through the door that we had made a great choice. The room was perfect - plenty of tea and coffee, immaculate and spotlessly clean with en-suite and such a comfortable bed. Lee and Llisa are about the best hosts you could wish for, the information and help they provide is second to none and with Lee running a taxi service he knows his way around Porthcawl. Breakfast is amazing, full english and very tasty. This sets you up perfectly for the day. When we visit Porthcawl again we know exactly where we will stay. It would be our pleasure to recommend the Marllew Guest House to visitors going to Porthcawl, South Wales. They would truely experience Welsh hospitality at its best. Hope to return in the near future. Many thanks to Lee and Lisa

“Great location, great service by Lisa and great value”

I came here with partners family and stayed in room 5, the room was well decorated and unlike some places the service was amazing. Lisa was outstanding, she couldn't do enough for the family. Plus the location was perfect a stone throw from the town, beach and fair. I rate this place highly.

“Great B and B”

From the outset, the owner, Lisa was welcoming and friendly. She showed me the ample sized room which was clean and comfy. Tea and coffee Facility, Free Wi-fi.quiet location yet only 1 min from beach. Lisa was knowledgable on the surrounding town and even suggested the best pub for great cheap food, and she wasn’t wrong.Check out The Rock Inn. Breakfast was large and very well cooked. Well worth a visit. I will be back.
