Stayed at The Great House for 3 nights during Senior Open Golf Championship in July. We loved our room in the Coach House. Very comfortable and equipped with every facility one could want for a short stay. The home made biscuits were a particular joy!! Weather was very hot whilst we were there, but coach house accommodation was wonderfully cool... More

Found by chance through this website after a failed booking. The first thing that hit us was the service, incredibly professional and nothing was too much trouble. We had breakfast three times and dinner twice. All were faultless and delicious. The staff have been trained to perfection and we felt like royalty at every meal. The room was comfortable and...

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights during the Senior Open Golf tournament. The location is very handy for Porthcawl and for other sights in the area but there is absolutely nothing else in Laleston itself. The hotel is family owned by Stephen and Norma, with help from Mo. While the decor is a bit overdone and twee... More

I have just returned from a one night break here with a friend, I was desperately in need of some relaxation as life has been stressful lately, we stayed in room 2 which was a twin with very comfortable beds, nice room with everything we needed, we had a sandwich for lunch which wasn't just a sandwich, it was made...

Had a long weekend mountain biking in Afan Forest and ended up staying here after our original plan didn't work out. Right from the start the service was friendly and helpful, the bedroom comfy with a full size bath and there was a garage where we could lock away our bikes. The food was absolutely incredible. The breakfast sustained us... More

Me and my wife stayed for one night, hospitality food out of this world, staff really friendly, would definitely stay again, my advice is if you are near Bridgend give this Hotel and restaurant a go and maybe stay over 👍 thumbs up from me Quality.

I was not in the Main House but in the Annex upstairs in a suite. Private Bath, Bed, all very nice. In this area of GB there are not a wide range of 4 or 5 star properties but this is an excellent stop for golf or visiting Wales. The best part was the food which for dinner, lunch and... More

Spent 5 nights here and found it a very pleasant experience. The food, service, rooms and the location are all first class. The rooms on the annex are spacious, well presented and quiet. Well recommended.

Beautiful weather for a family outing of afternoon tea no doubt helped the overall experience. but the sandwiches were varied, cakes, delicate and scones well-cooked. Larger quantities of jam & cream would have been welcomed, but the service was good too.

Thanky you for your kind comments. We are pleased that you enjoyed your afternoon tea with us. The garden is lovely when the sun is shining, however, afternoon tea is also lovely in the colder months in front of our roaring fires! We will make sure to remaind the waiting staff to offer more jam and cream. There is always... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Great House Hotel is a beautiful grade II* listed building originating from around 1550 and is believed to have been a gift from HRH Queen Elizabeth 1 to the Earl of Leicester who used it as a hunting lodge. Located in the pretty conservation village of Laleston, it is just 10 minutes from the seaside town of Porthcawl and 25 minutes equidistant between Cardiff and Swansea.A unique blend of historic original features contribute to The Great House's mature, dignified character - the flagstone floors, oak beams, inglenook fireplaces, mullioned windows, stone archways and dovecote in the south wall combine with modern excellent facilities, services and friendliness. Our aim is to make your stay with us relaxing and enjoyable. We want you to unwind and to feel at home here, whether you choose to read a book or dine in at Leicester's our 2 AA rosette restaurant, The Great House offers the perfect location to enjoy a memorable occasion. ... more   less
