Positive Reviews

Excellent for all Porthcawl attractions.

Guests of The Brentwood have been very appreciative of its location, since it is a matter of minutes away from the resort's main attractions, including the shops, beach and restaurants.

Clean and good value for money.

While the rooms are basic, they are nice and clean, the outside areas are tidy despite the smokers, and the price found found to be very much worth it.

Lovely staff, delicious breakfast.

You will find the lovely and helpful staff will make you feel very welcome, and the cooked breakfasts every morning are delicious and just what the doctor ordered after a night out in the resort.

Negative Reviews

Therefore, there can be bar noise.

It is therefore unsurprising to hear that there can be some noise experienced in rooms from the bar, patrons outside and particularly the nights when entertainment is scheduled, but some rooms are quieter and you can get by if you take earplugs.

Could use a bit of refurbishment.

Some guests were of the opinion that The Brentwood could use some fresh paint, overall refurbishment and replacement/updating of some furnishings, but given the price most were not too bothered.

Some shower issues.

You may take a little while to get the right temperature and pressure in the shower, and a few guests have not been impressed with their overall shower experience.
