Great House Hotel & Restaurant



“With wisdom’s eyes had but blind Fortune seen, then had my love, my love forever been.” Sir W. Raleigh.

The statuesque Great House Hotel: was once a queenly gift given by Queen Elizabeth I, to her one true love; Sir Walter Raleigh. Situated in the ravishing village of Laleston, Bridgend, the grade II listed Great House dates back to around 1550, and offers one of Bridgend County’s very best stays. Presenting 12 resplendent en-suite rooms, each one uniquely designed and furnished with its own style and personality. Many original features are still on display for guests to enjoy - oak beams, inglenook fireplaces, stone archways and flagged floors, which transport you back to a glorious gothic era. Boasting its own spa, jacuzzi and sauna, there’s plenty of choices for relaxing, whether you’re away on business or pleasure. Awarded two AA Rosette’s, The Great House Hotel is also the proud winner of Hotel & Restaurant of the year.


Whether you’re on a romantic trip for two, a family vacation or business trip; The Great House Hotel rolls out a royal welcome for all. Award winning, this remarkable building was once a gift given with much unrequited love - for Sir Walter Raleigh, from Elizabeth 1st. Seamlessly combining the beauty of the past, with all contemporary fixtures and fittings, the stunning en-suite rooms are uniquely designed, and eye-wateringly beautiful. Located in the picturesque conservation village of Laleston, Bridgend, The Great House Hotel is a mere 10 mins from the seaside village of Porthcawl: and is one of South Wales’ leading restaurants. Bearers of two coveted AA Rosettes, and twice named Country Restaurant of the Year, Leicester’s Restaurant presents a kingly profusion of simple, perfectly crafted and locally sourced dishes - so utterly delicious, that visitors return again and again.
