I normally won't do a bad review as I appreciate that could be influencing someone's livelihood. However this "hotel" is bad. It is a shame as the owner is very personable. Firstly the rooms are not clean, the sheets felt slimy and the carpet needed hoovering. Several items needed attention, the shower head didn't fix to the wall, the shelf... More

Booked the Beach house on booking.com. The location/position is superb- smack bang on the seafront. First impressions were excellent- it looks spot on! When got to the room we both felt a little disappointed, the decor and furnishings were well past their best and a bit jaded. The photos on booking.com were representative of the current state. On a more... More

We had a wonderful al fresco breakfast at The Beach House. We were not residents but stopped by to enjoy coffee and breakfast on the terrace. The hotel has great views over the sea, the owner was really helpful and the weather made this a great morning. If you are passing by..... Try

Room 7 is small but is a great place to see the Esplanade and the sea. The owner was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was very reasonable in price, cooked to order and piping hot. Even the coffee was first class.

As other reviews have said, the rooms are small and not as luxurious as you would hope for. However, what the hotel lacks in this regard is made up for by the friendly staff and owner. Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to accommodate us. The location is ideal and we enjoyed breakfast outside... More

Very good location right on the front on the esplanade overlooking the beach. Our room had two windows and a seat positioned to enjoy the view. A little cramped but clean and bright. Unfortunately an electric shower - they never seem to be adequate and the cubicle was small. Breakfast was fairly unremarkable - it was expensive for what it... More

We recently stayed two nights at The Beach House Hotel. We had a lovely stay with a welcoming friendly owner and lovely friendly staff. It is ideally suited for the sea front and the rest of Penarth is an easy walk away (a bit hilly) The hotel was very comfortable and clean and the full english breakfast was perfectly cooked...
