The Celtic Collection – the award-winning Welsh destination – is welcoming back guests with a host of new safety measures and dining options.
Home to five unique hotels (The Celtic Manor Resort, The Manor House, Coldra Court, Newbridge on Usk and Tŷ Hotel) and featuring a huge variety of options for world-class accommodation, activities and dining, the Collection provides the perfect alternative for those wanting to get away this year.
The five-star Celtic Manor Resort was recently voted by AA as the ‘Best UK Family Hotel in 2020’ and offers guests a unique opportunity to enjoy 2,000 acres of beautiful, breathing space set at the gateway to South Wales. It’s also home to the luxury Hunter Lodges with bubbling hot tubs and saunas.
The doors will be open for guests to enjoy luxury accommodation and ‘Restaurant in your Room’, a new service featuring signature dishes and flavours from the most popular Celtic Collection restaurants served for guests to enjoy at their very own window side table. Menu highlights include a starter of Monmouthshire Cured Ham with grilled peaches, balsamic pearl and pasta bread crisp; Welsh Sirloin served with beef croquettes, Celtic Manor’s famous take on ‘Tatws Pum Munud’ as well as a shallot and watercress salad; and a dessert of Bourbon Vanilla Crème Brulée with raspberries and shortbread. The resort will offer a choice of alfresco dining options with coverings to enable guests to enjoy whatever the weather. Restaurants are also open for bookings for when they reopen on 3rd August.
The landmark Welsh destination recently secured a new industry standard set out by the national tourist organisations of Great Britain and Northern Ireland called ‘We’re Good to Go’, and the AA’s COVID Confident seal of approval. Both accreditations are awarded to organisations which have implemented the Government’s COVID-19 reopening advice and have clear health and safety processes in place.
New safety measures include thermal imaging cameras to monitor guests’ temperatures at entry points, robust cleaning and sanitising protocols focused on High Impact Touchpoints (HIT) in bedrooms and public areas, and advanced training and health screenings for all staff. Capacity will be monitored in all facilities to ensure social distancing is in line with government guidance and there will be one way systems and clear social distancing markers throughout the resort.
Ian Edwards, Chief Executive of Celtic Manor Resort, comments: “We have really missed laying on our warm Welsh welcome to our guests, so we’re very excited to be reopening our doors and greeting guests who want to make memories in fresh, spacious surroundings after months spent at home.
“We want everyone to be able to enjoy their time with us, knowing that they can be confident that their health and safety is being protected by the measures that we have put in place.
“We’re Good to Go and we can’t wait to get back to what we are best at – offering our famous Welsh hospitality and giving our guests exceptional experiences and treasured memories.”
As the resort marks the 10th Anniversary of hosting golf’s Ryder Cup, ‘staycationers’ will have access to three world-class championship golf courses, the family-fun Adventure Golf, tennis courts, and 2,000 acres of woodland walks and panoramic parkland to explore.
