Welcome to The Great House Hotel

The Great House hotel is a beautiful grade II* listed building, originating from around 1550, believed to have been a gift from HRH Queen Elizabeth 1 to Robert Stanley, Earl of Leicester who used it as a hunting lodge. The Great House is located in the pretty conservation village of Laleston, Bridgend, and is now one of the leading restaurants in South Wales. Located 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 and warm atmosphere 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.
