Travel posts are some of my favourite to write lately. I love going away and exploring somewhere whether it be for a night or longer! Recently C and I decided we deserved so me time so when he got back from one of his four week trips abroad we booked in to stay at Coldra Court.
We booked one of the dinner, bed and breakfast deals online and went for Coldra Court as it was much cheaper than the resort, still looked lovely and if we wanted to we could have headed up to Celtic Manor for beauty treatments!
Coldra Court is Celtic Manors newest addition to the chain and is only 10 minutes away from the main resort hotel. They also run a shuttle service so you can make use of it all. As I was away for some us time I do have to apologise as our food was amazing but I didn’t snap away during dinner!
We stayed in a standard room and everything was decorated beautifully. The space in them was amazing too. I love the nudes and the classic furniture. It all just feels luxurious. The only thing I would say is the rooms didn’t have air conditioning. I do think even though it doesn’t get massively hot in the UK it’s nice to be able to control the temperature of the room. You could open the windows (which we did) but there was road noise this didn’t bother us though.
One thing I thought was great was that the plug sockets had USB ports. This meant that there wasn’t a fight for the sockets and they were positioned well within the rooms layout. The bathroom was lovely with Elemis toiletries. I do love that Celtic Manor has these throughout the resort.
As part of the rate we booked we also had a three course meal in the restaurant. There was a wide variety of choice and also the option to have a buffet starter, carvery and buffet desert. We both opted for the al la carte menu and it didn’t disappoint. The pork belly was amazing! Breakfast in Seasons restaurant was also great, there was a wide selection of hot and cold food and service for tea and coffee to the table was quick.
We popped in for a quick dip in the pool and hot tub. It is smaller than Celtic Manor Resort but still has Sauna, Hot Tub and Steam Room as well as the pool and was clean and tidy.
Overall we loved the stay there and would definitely go back. I still want to stay at the main resort so think we’ll do that next time. They do great deals on stays that include dinner and breakfast so I’d recommend signing up to their offers. We stayed on a Friday as it was cheaper and I’d definitely do it again. It was nice to finish work head there and just chill.
Have you stayed at the Celtic Manor?
