Had the most relaxing weekend. Had a lovely twin room, with plenty of space. The food was brilliant and loved the shuttle bus. Views were beautiful. Enjoyed the spa, even if seemed to be a little unorganised on arrival. Would 100% return, soon hopefully.

As returning guests who visited Celtic Manor several times in the past, we were pleasantly surprised on our arrival at the newly renovated facilities. Right from the first contact with the new owner Michele, we were made to feel right at home. Even other members of the new Celtic Manor family greeted my family like old friends, and this on...

We stayed for a full week beginning April, so we are entitled to judge! No long sentences, here's what really matters: Large Rooms, Stunning view, Super clean, Good breakfast, Great spa, Nicely located as a base for various tours. Fast WIFI. Michele and her staff made us really feel comfortable and at ease. I would definitely advise this guesthouse to... More

We had a large conference and the faculties are second to none, the main meal at the conference was well presented and the staff were excellent. I stayed overnight and the room was very clean and met expectations. Breakfast was what you would expect but no facility to make... More

Michele made every effort to assist my wife and I with as my wife describes "The most amazing treatment" Awesome views and a great place to unwind. It was a pleasure dealing with her both telephonically and via email due to the quick response.

We just want to reconfirm our comments made on the review entered by Guylin69, traveling together with you. The purpose of writing a second "review" is obvious : bringing down the good name we have on TripAdvisor, just as you threatened us . . We will not play your game..

We arrived at Celtic after being there for 4 consecutive years under the old owners. This year was the 1st with the new owner, We were participating in the Cape Epic so we had quite a lot of baggage and bicycles. She immediately told us we should leave the bikes outside in her drive way as she could not accommodate... More

It is a pity that, although you knew that we are the new owners, you did not made us aware of your expectations for your stay at the total renewed Celtic Manor Guesthouse Wellness and Spa. This could have avoided your unacceptable, aggressive and insulting behaviour. This would have avoided the fact that we ordered you already after only being... More
