The Vale Resort has invested £50,000 in refurbishing one of its conference suites
as part of its ongoing commitment to provide first-class facilities for the
business and corporate markets.

conferencing facilities for up to 700 delegates theatre style and 420 for a
banquet or dinner.
suite takes its name from the panoramic views overlooking the 17th Century Hensol Castle and rolling countryside viewed from the imposing floor to
ceiling windows (five and half metres high) at either end of the room, bathing
it in natural daylight.
Beddoe, sales and marketing director at
the Vale Resort, said: 'The conference and event market is an important revenue
stream for the Vale Resort, currently representing 35% of our business, so it’s
important to not only meet the expectations of our delegates, but exceed them.
first guest to enjoy the newly refurbished suite was Warren Gatland, the Wales
National Rugby Team coach, for his
farewell dinner, and we’ve got a host of other corporate events already booked
in for the upcoming conference season.”
already booked in for 2019/2020 include Spar International
residential conference, Flogas residential conference, DVLA Auction and
Healthcare Financial Management Association.
investment included just under 1000 square feet of carpet and 96 rolls of
wallpaper. It follows hot on the heels of a £500,000 upgrade in each of the
resort’s 143 bedrooms that was completed last year.
Beddoe added: “We are committed to providing the best quality we can for our
guests to enjoy. The refurbishment of our Castle Suite is just one in an
on-going programme of investment that we continue to make across the estate.”
The Castle Suite is just one of 15
state-of-the-art function rooms across the Vale Resort, which can accommodate
anything from 10 to 700 delegates. In addition, the 17th Century
Hensol Castle, which is situated in the grounds of the Vale Resort, can host up
to 320 delegates theatre style in its Courtyard Hall.
