Historic hotel relaunches in style
August 2013 - Llangoed Hall was re-launched with a bang with a spectacular fireworks display & champagne reception
More than 110 invited guests witnessed the display and music from a band of pipers and a male voice choir as managing director Calum Milne declared his intention to return the hotel to the top of the hospitality industry.
In excess of £2 million has been invested in an ambitious refurbishment programme with the intention to make Llangoed Hall the ultimate luxury country house hotel in Wales. The new investment has been put to good use.
The investment includes the complete refurbishment of the hotel’s 23 bedrooms, although quality features, including Laura Ashley furniture from the days of previous owner, the late Sir Bernard Ashley, are being retained.
“We want to restore Llangoed Hall to how it was under Sir Bernard’s ownership: the epitome of a Welsh country house offering the finest Welsh food and customer service,” said Mr Milne. “Sir Bernard always said that a house needs to be loved.”
“During my first time in charge, the hotel won a string of awards, including the most excellent country house hotel in Great Britain and Ireland in the prestigious Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence.”
It is the Llangoed Hall hotel’s intention to be challenging for such awards again.
