A former general manager of Llangoed Hall has returned with a mission to restore the imposing Brecon Beacons National Park property to the best country house hotel in Wales and a leader in the UK hospitality industry.
Calum Milne, 39, who was recruited by Sir Bernard Ashley to run his luxury hotel at Llyswen, near Brecon from April, 2004 to November, 2007, returns as managing director of Llangoed Limited.
The new owner, a British businessman, is keen to restore the “at home” experience, which was established by Sir Bernard in 1990. The first phase of a comprehensive development plan will see in excess of £500,000 being invested on refurbishing the hotel’s 23 bedrooms and bathrooms, most of which will have en-suite showers, public areas and soft furnishings.
Other exciting plans are in the pipeline for the Llangoed Hall Estate, situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park, which comprises 15 acres of gardens and grounds in the Wye Valley. The wedding venue is set to change dramatically and Mr Milne is looking to attract more corporate and mid-week leisure market business as the hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of Wales.
In addition to the Grade II-listed hotel, which dates back to 1632, there are offices, a flat, a textile factory, warehouse space, storage, a shop, a helicopter hangar, a five-bedroom lodge and extensive car parking.
“The new owner wants 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.
