The Vale Resort, Wales' highest rated 4* hotel, set amidst over 650 acres of beautiful Welsh countryside, is now firmly established as one of the UK’s most desirable golf, leisure, conference and team building destinations.
The Resort is home to a luxuriously appointed 143 bedroom, four star hotel once part of the estate of Hensol Castle – a 17th century stately home.
Although worlds away from the city bustle, business delegates feature prominently on the hotel’s agenda, with superb facilities and packages to suit a client’s every need. This offering has been vastly improved with the opening of one of the largest conference centres in South Wales. Able to accommodate 700 delegates for a conference and 450 for a banquet, the conference centre also boasts an impressive number of break-out rooms, a brasserie style restaurant and bar. This, in addition to existing state-of-the-art facilities positions the Vale Resort as a leading UK conference and team building destination venue.
The Vale offers various dining options, including the recently awarded AA rosette Vale Grill which provides a sumptuous “Best of Welsh” menu. Our restaurant uses locally sourced seasonal produce including award winning Welsh Black Beef, combined with an extensive wine and champagne list. For informal dining the Vale Bar or the Golf Clubhouse will fit the bill perfectly.
Put the pleasure back into business….. In addition, the Vale is home to two championship golf courses, the acclaimed 7,433 yard Wales National and the Lake – further boosting Wales’ reputation as an elite golfing destination in the build up to the 2010 Ryder Cup. If preferred, you can choose from a host of on-site corporate team building activities where delegates can enjoy a challenging afternoon in all weathers. For a more indulgent experience, there’s always the award winning spa to take time out, chill and treat mind, body and soul!
Ideally located, the Vale is less than 2 hours from London, 45 minutes from Bristol and only 15 minutes from Cardiff city centre and international airport.
