Celtic Collection to Open New Tŷ Hotel in Wales

Celtic Manor Resort — A 5-star luxury resort located in Newport, UK

The Celtic Collection will expand its portfolio of hotels and resorts in Wales to nine when it opens the new Tŷ Hotel Newport this summer.

The 146-bedroom hotel close to the flagship Celtic Manor Resort will provide important additional accommodation to support the largest conferences and expos held at International Convention Centre Wales (ICC Wales), as well as offer a convenient and appealing destination for business and leisure travelers.

Tŷ Hotel Newport will open on May 31st in time to welcome delegates to the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Congress, one of the largest events to be held at ICC Wales when more than 2,000 attendees are expected from June 2nd to 6th. The hotel will be a significant asset in attracting more of the most prestigious national and international association conventions to ICC Wales, the world-class events venue opened in partnership with the Welsh Government in 2019.

A £20M development, the Tŷ Hotel has been constructed to the most sustainable standards and will be Wales’s largest all-electric hotel with no gas used in its energy consumption.

The new property will be the third to open under The Celtic Collection’s Tŷ brand, following the acquisition to create Tŷ Hotel Magor in 2019 and the development of Tŷ Hotel Milford Waterfront in Pembrokeshire in 2022.

‘Tŷ’ is the Welsh word for ‘House’ and the hotel offers guests a warm Welsh welcome and a comfortable home away from home complete with relaxing bar and lounge areas, a gym, spacious ensuite bedrooms — including family rooms — and complimentary WiFi. The hotel’s bar and restaurant, Casa, will provide an exciting Mediterranean-inspired brasserie menu for diners.

A short drive from the centre of Newport and within 25 miles of Cardiff and Bristol, Tŷ Hotel will be the ideal base for a city break with family or friends, or for golfers playing Celtic Manor’s choice of three championship golf courses.

As well as welcoming in the new, The Celtic Collection will also be celebrating the past this summer when it marks the 25th anniversary of the opening of the Celtic Manor Resort Hotel.

Plans include a Summer Party, a season of guest offers based around the 25th year milestone, and a look back at the grand opening in 1999. A £120M expansion of the original Celtic Manor Hotel (now the Manor House), the 330-bedroom Resort Hotel complete with bars, restaurants, luxury spa and health club, and a 1,500-delegate convention center was one of the largest ever private investments in the UK hospitality industry.
