Coldra Court Hotel Opens with Plans for Major Upgrade


The Celtic Manor Resort has opened its new Coldra Court Hotel and plans to invest more than £2m in upgrading the property.

The new acquisition will see Celtic Manor safeguard the jobs of more than 100 staff working at the hotel, which had been trading as the Hilton Newport until contracts were officially exchanged at 1.00pm on Thursday 31stMarch.

New Hotel Manager Matthew Barnby said:

We are excited to be officially opening the Coldra Court Hotel by Celtic Manor and we are delighted to welcome the hotel’s talented and experienced team of staff into the Celtic Manor family. The Coldra Court is a four-star hotel in terms of facilities but we will run it with the same five-star service standards associated with the Celtic Manor Resort. We will be investing more than £2m in upgrading the hotel over the next three years, beginning with a phased refurbishment of the bedrooms. We will also be introducing a new restaurant concept and looking to update the conference and banqueting facilities in the near future.
