Vale Resort Golf Estate
At the Celtic Manor Resort, Wales, there are choices to stay from the 5* luxury the main hotel, 4* Manor House, 4* Coldra Court Hotel or even a secluded, relaxing time at one of the resort’s lodges or farmhouse.
The 5* Resort Hotel is stylish to say the least. Featuring Celtic Manor room design, you are accommodated close to not only great restaurants such as Steak on Six, The Olive Tree and Merlin’s Bar, but also the Forum Health Club and Spa, Forum Café and the Celtic Mall.
The 4* Manor House Hotel oozes history and charm but with the luxury of a top-class resort. Rooms include manor double and twin, moving up to period rooms, some having four poster beds with the feeling of the years gone by. The Manor House Hotel is home to the Asian fusion Pad Restaurant, the Cellar Bar and Manor Lounge.
The 4* Coldra Court Hotel is only 5 minutes from the Manor House Hotel. Rooms are standard, superior or deluxe. The hotel includes the Rib SmokeHouse Restaurant where breakfast is served daily, and dinner reservations can be made. At the Court Bar you can enjoy a cocktail on the patio or take a coffee on the comfortable sofas. The Coldra Court Hotel also has the Spring Health Club where you can swim in their 18-metre indoor pool and use the sauna or steam room after a long day playing golf.
The Hunter Lodges are suitable for families or groups of friends who prefer the self-catering option. All lodges are decorated to high standards with top quality features such as indoor sauna, TV in all bedrooms, lounge and chill out room, plus hot tub. There is also the Welsh farmhouse and barn as another accommodation.
The Celtic Manor Resort has even more to offer; alternative restaurants and bars, so something different every day of the week.
Opened in 1995, the Roman Road Golf Course is the first of Celtic Manor’s resort courses. This 18-hole, par 70 course overlooks the Severn Estuary and is named after the old Via Julia Roman road that originally ran where the fairways are today. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior, this course has been the venue for numerous European and Senior Tours. This is a challenging course and features some long, open fairways but also some tighter fairways travelling through trees and across streams. The Celtic Manor Club House offers laid back dining, two bars and a terrace. This is one of the most luxurious club houses in Europe with wooden beams and open fires; a great place to sit and take in the view of the 18th hole.
Built to stage the 2010 Ryder Cup, The Twenty Ten Golf Course marks the 10th anniversary of the only Ryder Club held in Wales. Half of the 18 holes have water hazards and six signature holes. One of the main features of this fantastic course is that many of the earlier holes have a links feel about them where the latter holes reveal a lake lined challenge. The clubhouse takes advantage of views over the 18th hole and the Rafters Bar and Restaurant is found here. A fantastic place for the after-golf drink.
The 3rd golf course at Celtic Manor, the Montgomerie Golf Course is the smaller of the three but offers a spectacular par 69 challenge for any golfer. Colin Montgomerie has created a traditional feel and used his Ryder Cup experience to create a course strategically placed. With breath-taking scenery of the Welsh valleys, this course has been the host to many professional and highly ranked amateur tournaments. The Montgomerie Golf Course shares the Celtic Manor Club House with the Roman Road Golf Course.
