The Great House Hotel near Bridgend, South Wales, which won the title of Hotel Restaurant of the Year 2016 for Wales, has been brought to the market for the first time in more than 30 years.
The Grade II-listed property in Laleston, which has a guide price of £935k for the freehold, has a history of royal connections.
Believed to have been a gift from Queen Elizabeth I for her admirer the Earl of Leicester, the property is also said to have been home to Anne Boleyn, the second wife of King Henry VIII, and more recently was stayed in by Prince Charles.
Current owners Stephen and Norma Bond are now looking to sell the Great House and look towards retirement, having invested a significant amount in the development of the property over the last three decades.
The hotel is home to 12 bedrooms and Colliers International hotels director Peter Brunt said there was plenty of scope to expand the business further.
He said that the history of the Great House will provide an additional draw for buyers already attracted by its impressive sales figures and its well-placed location equidistant between Cardiff and Swansea.
“With its wonderfully grand rooms a visit to the Great House is like stepping back in time, but we believe new owners of this ‘Welsh Wolf Hall’ will be looking toward an equally exciting future,” he said.
“The hotel is beautifully presented with elegantly furnished rooms, eight of which are in the main house and four in the old coach house.
“Buyers will appreciate the care taken in the sympathetic refurbishment, and the fact that Stephen and Norma have continued to keep the hotel looking smart and contemporary right up to today.”
