Nowhere does Christmas like Celtic Manor
With less than a week to go until the big day, everything is feeling very festive here at Celtic Manor as we prepare for our busiest time of the year.
As this fantastic new video shows, Nowhere does Christmas like Celtic Manor and we have always prided ourselves on our Christmas decorations and going the extra mile to help our guests get in the true festive spirit when they come to celebrate with us.
The main Christmas Tree in the lobby with the train set going around it has become something of a tourist attraction in its own right, and it is always fantastic to see this festive focal point capture the hearts of our guests, young and old.
Of course, it’s just one of dozens of Christmas trees around the resort as we seek to ensure that every corner of our hotels and clubhouses brings some colour and cheer to all the guests celebrating with us this month.
By the time this weekend draws to a close, we will have seen and entertained more than 15,000 guests celebrating with family, friends and work colleagues at our range of Christmas Party Nights spread across eight venues.
Next week, we will serve Christmas Day lunches to more than 1,500 guests across all seven of our restaurants, as well as the Winter Wonderland in the Caernarfon Ballroom.
More than 20,000 crackers will have been pulled and 3,500 bottles of bubbly popped by the time we ring in 2019 at our New Year’s Eve Starlight Ball.
The festivities don’t end with the arrival of the New Year, however, as The Great Skate ice rink attraction runs right up to the end of the school holidays on 6th January.
The ice rink has grown from strength to strength since we introduced it to the resort’s Rooftop Garden back in 2011. It is now double the size we started at and under a covered roof with the Bratwurst hut and bar giving a real alpine feel, it provides a fantastic setting for getting in the festive mood with family and friends.
If skating feels a bit too energetic, our festive afternoon teas also run until New Year’s Day so if you have not yet found time to pop in and see the resort in all its festive finery, we hope to see you very soon. After all, Nowhere does Christmas like Celtic Manor!
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
