Celtic Manor plans 100-key hotel in Wales

UK: The hotel, part of the Milford Waterfront development in Milford Haven, will be managed and operated by Celtic Manor Resort and will belong to its Celtic Collection of properties.

Scheduled to open in 2022, the new hotel will feature four floors of accommodation, a restaurant and a bar, private dining area and an activity suite.

It will form part of the Celtic Collection’s new portfolio of Tŷ Hotels and is located at the entrance to Milford Waterfront on the Pembrokeshire Coast. 

Around 50 permanent jobs will be created in the hotel’s operations, with many more supported in the supply chain.

Ian Edwards, CEO of the Celtic Collection, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to manage and operate this exciting new hotel in a spectacular waterfront location and we are excited to launch this partnership with the Port of Milford Haven.

“After such a difficult year for tourism and hospitality, it is fantastic to announce this positive news as we look forward to the sector reopening. We know this hotel is going to bring a welcome boost to the local economy and attract a lot of new visitors to Milford Haven.

“This is a brilliant opportunity for The Celtic Collection to expand our horizons and bring our expertise in hotels and hospitality to Pembrokeshire, a region which is world-renowned as a tourist destination thanks to its spectacular coastline and landscape, and its welcoming people. We look forward to working with the community and with local suppliers and stakeholders to make a real success of this new hotel and drive more prosperity for the region.”

Chief executive at the Port of Milford Haven, Andy Jones, said: “The new Tŷ Hotel is great news for Pembrokeshire and represents a watershed moment for Milford Waterfront. The Celtic Collection, with its international standing, shares our passion for the destination – with its fascinating history and stunning marina backdrop – and has joined us to tell a global audience that Milford Waterfront is a fantastic place to visit and to stay.

“An investment of this kind creates a ripple effect, building even greater positivity among local businesses and creating opportunities for jobs and long-term growth. Despite lockdowns during the Covid pandemic, many Milford Waterfront businesses have continued to thrive and are looking forward to opening their doors again and welcoming families and foodies alike.

“We are a proud Pembrokeshire business and are delighted to be bringing this high quality investment to the area in partnership with The Celtic Collection. It really does demonstrate to other investors that Pembrokeshire offers great opportunities for growth.”

Construction began in January 2021 and has been ongoing during the present lockdown. It is due for completion in spring next year.
