A Brief History of Court Colman Manor
Court Colman Manor, the former home of the Llewellyn family, gives you the chance to enjoy that memorable experience.

It will be an experience you will long remember.
The house is steeped in history. There may have been a building at or near the present site, when the land was owned by the monks of Margam Abbey. There is evidence of a Tudor building in a gateway of that time leading to the garden house.
In 1837 the building was bought by retired naval surgeon and medical practioner William Llewellyn. He died three years later and his widow survived until 1848. The house was inherited by William Llewellyn II, who lived there until his death in 1898. The property then passed to his son Robert William Llewellyn in 1906 following the death of his mother.
The family fortunes were prospering at this time, due to the royalties from the steam coal produced from Llewellyn land in the Rhonnda. Money was plentiful and Robert added the refinements to Court Colman that turned it into a top class gentleman's residence. He died in 1910 and the property was inherited by his son William H.C Llewellyn. He sold the building in 1961.
Court Colman Manor, a hotel since 1981, was revitalised under the guidance of the late Vijay Bhagotra, to become one of the most attractive and luxurious hotels in South Wales.
