There are two hotels at The Celtic Manor Resort. Guests can choose to stay in the luxurious five star Resort Hotel or the traditional 19th century Manor House. Each hotel has its own style and atmosphere, allowing you to choose your ideal surroundings for a relaxing break.
The Resort Hotel
The Resort's luxurious five star hotel opened in 1999. Each one of its 330 bedrooms are beautifully appointed and decorated, where distinctive design and traditional luxury create a calm and relaxing environment.
The selection of luxury suites are individually decorated with picture windows and terraces. Even more indulgent and sumptuous are the two Presidential Suites, one with a baby grand piano.
The Resort Hotel is home to The Olive Tree restaurant, Owens fine dining restaurant and Merlins Bar along with the The Forum Health Club and Spa, Forum Café, The Hideaway Club and the Celtic Arcade adjacent to reception, which features designer golf and leisurewear from the likes of Tommy Hilfiger and Greg Norman, ladies wear from the Really Wild Clothing Company and beautifully presented gifts and souvenirs.
Guests at The Resort Hotel also enjoy complimentary telephone calls to national landlines, high speed internet access and complimentary use of The Forum Health Club leisure facilities.
The Manor House
Long before the new Resort Hotel was built, the historic 19th century Manor House was recognized to be one of the finest hotels in the United Kingdom.
Present owner Sir Terence Matthews acquired The Manor House in 1980, after it had been used for more than 30 years as a maternity hospital, the Lydia Beynon, where he himself was born.
He refurbished the property and opened it as a hotel. The Celtic Manor, as it was then named, was an instant success, winning the Egon Ronay award for the best hotel in Wales for five consecutive years.
The character of this lovely property has been retained and it now provides a total of 70 traditionally styled bedrooms which have recently been refurbished, including three with four-poster beds. In addition, The Manor House is home to The Patio restaurant, the Cellar Bar, Residents' Lounge, Manor Bar, Hedleys, and The Manor Suite, and is a popular venue for weddings with its romantic country house ambience.
The Manor House is set in glorious landscaped gardens, with its own parking and direct access to The Resort Hotel.
