An HISTORIC HOUSE with a wealth of period features - oak beams, stone archways, inglenook fireplaces. A CULINARY EXPERIENCE in the superb, justly popular restaurant. GOOD BASE for South Wales coast and country, and an exceptional choice of local golf courses.
Norma and Stephen Bond have achieved wonders at The Great House. When they took it over it was a derelict shell. Now it is one of South Wales's leading hotels and restaurants. The restoration of the historic Grade II Star listed building, which dates from the 1550s, has been completed with great sympathy. Many original and period features contribute to The Great House's mature, dignified character - the flagstone floors, oak beams, inglenook fireplaces (one with the single largest unbroken span of stone in Wales), mullioned windows, stone archways and dovecote in the south wall.
Special emphasis is placed on the food at The Great House. Its well-known restaurant serves classical cuisine with a modern approach based on the freshest quality produce, complemented by an interesting wine list.
Much attention has also been devoted to the bedrooms, which are decorated in a soothing, tasteful style. Some are within the main house while others have a courtyard location. Guest facilities include The Well Health Suite with multi-gym, sauna and Jacuzzi. Croquet lessons are optional!
The immaculate, comfortable and welcoming Great House stands in the heart of the pretty conservation village of Laleston. Located midway between Cardiff and Swansea close to excellent walking country, the Glamorgan Heritage Coast and a choice of 10 golf courses (including the famous trio, Royal Porthcawl, Southerndown and Pyle and Kenfig), it is an ideal base from which to explore all of South Wales.
The restaurant is closed on Sunday evenings, hotel closed Bank Holiday Mondays.
