The Tŷ Hotel Milford Waterfront is soon to be a must-stay 100-bedroom hotel at the heart of Milford Haven. Ahead of its official opening in April, a selection of local VIP visitors were invited to celebrate St David’s Day in style with an exclusive behind the scenes tour.

South Wales Life was amongst those special visitors and what we saw is going to something really special when it opens next month.

The St David’s Day FestiviTŷ event gave visitors a first glimpse of this exciting new hotel with a tour of the 46,000 sq ft property, its four floors of bedrooms and unbeatable views overlooking Milford Marina.

It was also an opportunity for SIMON CROCKFORD, former Wales National Chef of the Year and Executive Head Chef at Tŷ Hotel, to provide a taste of the delicious dishes that will be available in the hotel’s new restaurant, dulse – using some of the best local produce Pembrokeshire has to offer.

On touring the Tŷ Hotel, which is located at the entrance to Milford Waterfront, we saw why it is the perfect base to stay and explore the area. With a range of stylish rooms available, including family rooms, the hotel is suitable for all types of travellers, from business to leisure.

The Tŷ Hotel is the latest addition to the expanding portfolio in The Celtic Collection and the Tŷ Hotels family, in partnership with the Port of Milford Haven.

The hotel will be managed by Adrian Andrews who has returned home to his native Pembrokeshire. Adrian worked in a number of private hotels in his hometown of Tenby before spreading his wings to become a multi-site manager for Premier Inn in Birmingham, Bristol, and Cardiff.

We spoke to some of the team putting the finishing touches to the project and preparing to welcome visitors through the door. We also put on our hard hat and hi-vis jackets and had a sneak peek into some of the finished rooms.

Speaking about the progress made on site, Ian Edwards, Chief Executive at The Celtic Collection told us…..

“The development of Milford Waterfront is a very exciting, ongoing project. The Tŷ Hotel will provide the perfect place for visitors to stay and enjoy this rejuvenated area of natural beauty.

“Today was a great opportunity to celebrate this stunning new location, its magnificent views and the hotel restaurant which will showcase the very best of Pembrokeshire’s produce and we know many more people are going to enjoy visiting the hotel when it opens next month.”

Andy Jones is Chief Executive at the Port of Milford Haven, he added…..

“For many years we’ve firmly believed that Milford Haven was a hidden gem in Pembrokeshire’s crown, and it truly is a proud moment for our team to see this vision continue to become reality. 

“The arrival of Tŷ Hotel Milford Waterfront and our confidence in Milford Haven’s potential as a destination, which is shared by The Celtic Collection, is creating a ripple effect of prosperity locally, building on what’s already here and giving confidence to other investors that Milford Haven and Pembrokeshire offer opportunities for growth and employment. 

“We are very much looking forward to the opening of the hotel next month, to our continued partnership with The Celtic Collection, and to the ongoing success and development of Milford Waterfront.”
