The owners of Celtic Manor Resort have acquired a nearby hotel to relaunch as the first Tŷ Hotel following a rebrand.
The Celtic Collection has expanded its portfolio with the acquisition of the former Hampton by Hilton at Magor as well as the nearby Sawyers restaurant, to relaunch as a new Tŷ Hotel next month.
The 129-bedroom will be managed by the team at Celtic Manor and join the likes of Coldra Court by Celtic Manor, and the Newbridge on Usk country inn restaurant with rooms as part of the group.
Tŷ is the Welsh word for ‘house’ and reflects a new style of mid-range hotel offering from The Celtic Collection. The new concept will be aimed at guests staying one or two nights whilst attending an event or occasion.
The Celtic Collection took over today, with all management and staff remaining in place under the leadership of hotel manager Roger Goldworthy.
Celtic Manor Resort chief executive 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.
“We know the demand for this type of comfortable and essential accommodation is strong and that demand will only increase when we open the International Convention Centre Wales later in the summer.
