The Vale Resort 4* Details

The Vale hotel information

The 4* Vale Hotel is situated in over 650 acres of beautiful Welsh countryside and has now established itself as one of the UK’s most desirable golf break destinations. Play a round of golf, relax in the spa or dine in style at the AA rosette restaurant, Vale Grill.

The Vale Hotel Cardiff was once part of the Hensol Castle estate - a 17th century stately home - but is now a 143 bedroom hotel with 4* quality. The majority of the rooms offer superb views over the surrounding countryside along with comfortable furnishings and en suite bathrooms. The Vale has been designed so that it maximises the comfort and convenience of every type of golfer.

There is a wonderful range of dining options including delicious favourites from the AA rosette awarded Vale Grill to home cooked delights in the clubhouse. If you are looking for something extra special before your meal, you can treat yourself to some of the very best champagnes or finest cocktails in the Salamanza Champagne Bar.

Spa information

Away from the golf and fine dining, the Vale Resort owns one of Wales’s largest spas with 19 therapy rooms, each offering an extensive range of indulging treatments. This spa is a great place for golfers and non-golfers to relax and get pampered in the peaceful setting. Guests also have use of the first class leisure facilities that include a swimming pool, fitness studio, squash courts, tennis courts and a large state of the art gymnasium.

Things to see and do

Being just 15 minutes from Cardiff you’re never short for things to do. The night life is well known and the shopping facilities will satisfy any shopaholic. History lovers will want to visit the picturesque Norwegian Church where Roald Dahl was christened, and science fans will enjoy the UK’s leading science discovery centre ‘Techniquest’.

Wincanton Avid golfer
Great venue for golf break .just a couple of things let it down .

1.wherever you sit in the restaurant the tables wobble badly.

2. One night were told we could order steak because of the break deal we had but the next night we had to pay a £5 supplement.???.

Little things like this seem pointless and puts you off returning . Buggy hire far to dear .you feel exploited .
But never the less 2 great courses
