The acquired property at Magor will become the first Tŷ Hotel owned and managed by the team at Celtic Manor. The 129-bedroom hotel lies five miles from the Celtic Manor Resort, one junction east along the M4 at the Magor Services at Junction 23A.
The new brand is aimed primarily at people staying one or two nights who need a “comfortable and functional” resting place while attending a meeting, conference, concert, family get-together or sporting event.
The Celtic Collection now includes the main Resort Hotel with adjoining Manor House, Coldra Court by Celtic Manor, the Newbridge on Usk country inn restaurant with rooms and the newly acquired Tŷ Hotel at Magor.
Celtic Manor Resort CEO Ian Edwards said: “We are delighted to be expanding The Celtic Collection with the creation of this Tŷ Hotel at the former Hampton by Hilton at Magor.
“It is exciting to be launching this new brand which will be a fantastic addition to our portfolio of properties. Tŷ will offer something different to what we provide at the Celtic Manor Resort and our existing hotels.”
He added: “It is aimed at travellers with a purpose who are looking for a simple room for the night, maybe two, while they attend a meeting or event, or are simply travelling through. They want easy check-in, good wifi and great coffee – no distractions, just what they need and nothing they don’t.”
