YESTERDAY saw the launch of three of the Celtic Manor Resort’s new Hunter Lodges.

Sleeping up to eight people, the ten Scandinavian-style log lodges all have four double or twin bedrooms, large dining and living areas and fitted kitchens. They also each boast outdoor hot tubs and indoor saunas.

The £4.3 million project imported more than 10,000 pine log sections from Finland and the building frames are all constructed from100 per cent timber with no concrete or steel supports in the walls.

Aimed primarily at the family and leisure market, the lodges are also designed to appeal to golf groups playing Celtic Manor’s three championship courses, friends on spa breaks, and corporate incentive trips.

Celtic Manor Resort chief operating officer Ian Edwards said: “The Hunter Lodges are the first phase in a potential development of 60 luxury lodges here at Celtic Manor. These lodges give our guests a special place to enjoy a different type of break than we have been able to offer before. With so many facilities at the resort.”

Looks like the Celtic Manor are trying to offer a Center Parcs-style attraction. Attracting the family market will be good.

The lodges sound lovely, but they are really only suitable for large families. You need 6-8 people to make the lodges worth while. This would be no good for my parents and me (i.e. 3 of us). We would be better off staying in the hotel rooms. I don't know whether the Celtic Manor does family rooms that allow 3 adult members of a family. Usually, anytime my parents and I go on holiday, I always have to go in a separate room to my parents and I always get stung with a single supplement. I end up having to pay the same price as 2 people. It is about time the hotel industry in general started catering more for the single person. It is not fair to charge a single person the same price as a couple.
