Celtic Manor Resort Hotel
High standards of staff, accommodation, food and facilities
It isn't cheap, but you get what you pay for
Whenever the grandchildren see me they always ask the same question ‘Where’s Grandpa?’ I reply ‘Where do you think?’ Their answer is automatically ‘At golf’. This is invariably correct so Celtic Manor is an ideal place for us to stay. Grandpa loves to play golf and I love to lounge about reading and having the odd spa treatment whilst he is out. So on paper Celtic Manor should have been perfect. Well it was. Whilst the golfers were otherwise engaged I had a chance to wander around the hotel. It is a very imposing building that overlooks the Severn estuary and is surrounded by golfing greens and trees. There is a kids play area and even a Nanny Service. For the more adventurous child there is Adventure Golf, a Treetop Adventure with high and low rope course, swimming and a variety of sports. I mention all this as I could see this place being a perfect venue for a family reunion, as it would be able to cater for all ages. Instead I went to the Spa and indulged myself with a massage, pedicure and manicure. Well, I had to conserve my energy for the evening as we had a table booked at The Crown. This restaurant has 3 rosettes and is the ‘resorts flagship for fine dining.’ We lost count of the number of courses we were served. Each one was presented beautifully and tasted superb. It’s a great experience for a special occasion.
