We had our wedding day here on the 6th May and the whole day was amazing, Hannah and the team did everything and more for us and it is so much appreciated. Everyone who came complimented that it's a beautiful place to marry, it was small and intimate just what we wanted. The whole day went without a hitch, the food was stunning and the service impeccable! Don't hesitate for a second to have your special day here, it was amazing and will treasure the memories forever!
I stayed with friends on 12/13 May. Lovely little hotel, lots of character. Very comfy bedrooms, only downside was the low powered shower. We are in the restaurant and had a delicious meal. The west breakfast was outstanding. Staff were very attentive and helpful.
The best venue for a small wedding of around 30 people. The staff could not do enough - professional, friendly, making sure everything ran as it should. So many little things going on in the background guests would have been unaware of. Venue is great, food wonderful - far better than your average fayre (including the evening buffet). The service throughout the day was impeccable. Highly recommended.
We returned to Wales post-COVID and looked forward to our stay at the Great House. Our evening meal was great, with good wine, but breakfast the next morning was the complete opposite: eggs Benedict where the muffins were hard, the ham grey and rubbery, hollandaise sauce tasted as if it was from a packet, and all sprinkled with a grey green dust! Most unappetising. This place makes it’s own delicious bread and yet serves factory produced sliced bread for breakfast. We could only surmise that there were different sets of staff for different meals. Our room was in a small block, just away from the main building, and not at all what we expected in a listed building. Far too bling in our opinion - coloured lights in the ceiling, gold bedcover, and white marble floor. But issues with basics - no place to put wash bags or hang clothes in the bathroom, the shelf in the vanity unit had not been put in place, but rested inside vertically, the sink overflow had not been connected to anything, and there was no space for a connection anyway, a large wall tile was in the wardrobe. A rushed but incomplete refurbishment.…

Bought their afternoon tea voucher as a Christmas present for my granddaughter and her partner - however she asked me to go along with her to celebrate my birthday together. We had high expectations from reading reviews however was very disappointing. Firstly my grandaughters china was dirty so had to be replaced - which effected the over all look as then nothing matching. There was plenty of tea offered which was delicious - we had 2 before the food came. We had 3 sandwiches there was a tiny piece of salmon, cheese and tomatoe and a spicy chicken wrap - you woild not expect basic cheese and tomatoe when paying for an afternoon tea. The scones were tiny and hard. The other 3 cakes were all raspberry in flavour and as the other lady in review stated , far to sweet. The profiterole cake was covered in lots of colourful icing which stained fingers and tongue. Go for afternoon tea very often and this is by far the worst - expected great things from 'great house' but was not worth what was paid. My granddaughter was gutted as it was her Christmas present.…
Wow! What taste sensations! Literally every mouthful was a delight. So much so, that I overindulgence¹! I couldn't refuse dessert as I knew it would be just amazing as all the other courses. Presentation was exceptional, taste was exquisite and service was outstanding
I recently arranged an afternoon tea for my grandmother's 99th birthday. We looked around for somewhere doing a lovely afternoon tea and settled on The Great House in Laleston which seemed to have decent reviews. We called in several weeks in advance to view the tables where we would be seated and explained that it was for a 99th birthday and wanted it to be special. Paid deposit and then turned up on the day. The finger sandwiches were quite limited for a group of 13, only 3-4 different types, cakes were sickly sweet and uninspiring, coffee and tea was ok, but again not as plentiful as you would expect. Service was poor- initially served the plates and left us to it. Very little customer attention, a couple of young staff on who seemed mainly intent on chatting behind the reception desk. Having asked for something special we expected better customer care, sadly this was not to be. Making an afternoon tea of high quality should be simple for a hotel but we were left very disappointed and will not return. The only highlight was when another couple of customers stopped by to wish my grandmother their best regards and congratulations- shame the venue couldn't manage the same!…
Stayed a couple of nights Dinner Bed and Breakfast over Valentines, we were put in room 1 which we found cramped and ill equipped, very limited hanging or storage space, usb charging point was disconnected and not fully fixed to the wall, the bed was a standard double and was comfortable. The en-suite was on the other hand newly done to a high standard - made one think they are mid-update process. The room was not made up the second day, when asked why they said due to covid - although no other covid measures were evident. Pre-booked bottle of champagne in room was not there - had to go down and ask for it.
