The Manor House Hotel – Celtic Manor Resort
Long before the new Celtic Manor Resort Hotel was built, the historic 19th century Manor House was recognised to be one of the finest hotels in the United Kingdom, winning the Egon Ronay award for the best hotel in Walesfor five consecutive years.
Present owner Sir Terence Matthews acquired The Manor House in 1980, after it had been used for more than 30 years as a maternity hospital, the Lydia Beynon, where he himself was born.
The character of this lovely property has been retained and it now provides a total of 70 traditionally styled bedrooms, including three with four-poster beds. In addition, The Manor House is home to Le Patio restaurant, the Cellar Bar, Residents’ Lounge, Manor Bar, Hedleys, and The Manor Suite, and is a popular venue for weddings with its romantic country house ambience.
The Manor House is set in glorious landscaped gardens, with its own parking and direct access to The Resort Hotel. Guests at The Manor House Hotel also enjoy complimentary telephone calls to national landlines, high speed internet access and complimentary use of The Forum Health Club leisure facilities.

Golf at The Celtic Manor Resort
As venue of the 2010 Ryder Cup and home of the ISPS Handa Wales Open, a leading European Tour event, The Celtic Manor Resort offers some of the finest golf courses and facilities in the UK. These include The Twenty Ten Course, the Roman Road and The Montgomerie.
There is also a world-class golf academy featuring a floodlit driving range, practice range, indoor putting studio, golf shop and teaching bays and two luxurious golf clubhouses, The Twenty Ten Clubhouse and The Lodge with its own bar, restaurant, health club and spa.
The Resort provides complimentary shuttles around the Celtic Manor Resort for guests to gain access to our golf courses and clubhouses.
The Twenty Ten Course
Built to stage The 2010 Ryder Cup, the first course to be built specifically for golf’s greatest team tournament, it measures a robust 7,493 yards off the back tees and has a par of 71.
With water hazards on half of its holes, the course has six signature holes and presents many more memorable tests and risk-and-reward dilemmas. One of the features of the spectacular new course is its variety with many of the earlier holes having a links-like feel with some long rough and greenside swales, before the middle section of the course reveals the full extent of the lake-lined challenge.
A tough finishing stretch culminates in a real sting in the tail at the 18th.
The Roman Road Course
Roman Road, the first of the Resort’s courses, opened in 1995 and was ranked ‘the top inland course in Wales’ by Golf Monthly Magazine. This par 70 course overlooks the Severn Estuary with views across to Somerset and Devon. It was designed by Robert Trent Jones Snr and is named after the many Roman roads that criss-cross it, the design shaped to avoid disrupting any remains.
The Roman Road course was the host venue in 2005, 2006 and 2007 for The Celtic Manor Wales Open and the 2005 and 2006 All*Star Cup which over the two years of the event has featured celebrities such as Catherine Zeta Jones, Michael Douglas, Ronan Keating, Chris Evans, Jodie Kidd, Bruce Forsyth, William Baldwin, Alice Cooper, Meat Loaf, James Nesbitt and Jane Seymour.
Designed by Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie, the course measures 6,371 yards and has a par of 69. The front nine takes as its framework the starting and closing holes of the old Wentwood Hills championship course which were not part of the plans for the new course for The Ryder Cup. The back nine has been created from scratch on land that previously housed the 18-hole Coldra Woods academy course.
Throughout the new course, Montgomerie has put his own stamp on the layout. A traditionalist in design terms, the eight-time European No 1 has added deep pot bunkers to give the course a links look.
Spectacular views abound with dramatic tee shots over valleys and breathtaking downhill shots. Two long par fives, a number of short par fours and several testing par threes all add up to an exciting and rewarding challenge.
