"Excellent food and service"

We spent a night here in a fabulous quirky bedroom, beautifully fitted. We love the character of this Hotel and it has been refurbished with great care and taste.
The food is fantastic. Highly recommend


I was greeted with a smile at reception and from that point the service I received was amazing.

The Receptionist was new to the role and was just brilliant, she couldn’t do enough to help. The food in the restaurant was absolutely brilliant and they also gave me some complimentary food too. The room was modern and spacious for the money paid. If I’m on business in the Cardiff or Bridgend area again I would definitely stay here again.

Many thanks to all the staff, a brilliant experience.

"A first class visit full of surprises"

This was a last-minute booking for a business trip. On arrival, I suddenly realised this was going to be a bit special. The place is immaculate and following a very warm Welsh reception, I was taken over to the stables that have been converted into some high-end luxurious rooms (and I suspect) apartments. This was not what I was suspecting as I examined the super smooth mood lighting and quality fixtures and fittings. This included the lighting in the bathroom complete with fancy back-lit mirror. This inspired me to research into the history of this 16th Century manor as I settled down into my room which again turned up stories of secret tunnels, brushes with royalty and noted Tudor architecture. Ask them about the fireplace in the main bar. The next morning, the quality breakfast and friendly staff resonated with the clear management strategy to leave the guests wow'd and looking forward to coming back. And that's where The Great House has left me; very much looking forward to coming back. To note I never got the chance to try out the in-house restaurant. I have no doubt that would be impeccable given the track record the hotel has with myself. I'm also told by locals that there are a couple of options for quality dining within walking distance of the hotel but to be honest, I'm not sure I would want to leave the grounds. Rebooking is a no-brainer.

"Would recommend "

Very spacious double room, large bathroom and all the amenities we could need. Offered a cosy bar area in the evening and a lovely breakfast in the morning.
We would certainly stay again if/when we return to the area.
