Classic Lodges, the nationwide group of carefully selected high-end properties, has added another Partner Hotel to its growing portfolio, bringing the group’s number to 16.
The AA four star 70-bedroom Parkway Hotel and Spa has been owned by the acclaimed De Savary family since 2012, and is located between Newport and Cwmbran, just 20 miles from Cardiff and 30 miles from Bristol. This luxurious hotel is set in seven and a half acres of beautiful landscaped grounds with an excellent restaurant and comfortable lounge bar. It also has a leisure club, spa with its own pool, suntrap terrace and coffee shop.

General Manager, Kerry Jennings, says Classic Lodges is the ideal fit for the Parkway: “We are a 4 star hotel with a fantastic location in South Wales, and we feel it will be a great addition to the fantastic properties already within the Classic Lodges group,” she says.
“Not only does it give the group a hotel in the region, but also links up the Castle in Hereford and also Charingworth Manor in the Cotswolds. We will also be able to use its sales and marketing expertise to help grow our business at an important stage in our expansion.”
The Classic Lodges Partner Hotels programme offers independent hotels of a similar size the opportunity to share the Classic Lodges brand and to benefit from sales and marketing support provided by the Classic Lodges headquarters in Chorley, as Richard Smith, Director of Marketing and Partnerships at Classic Lodges, explains:

“The Parkway Hotel fits into the Classic Lodges brand perfectly; with its excellent location just over the Severn Bridge in Wales and on the edge of the Wye Valley, it is ideal for business trips, meetings, and leisure visits too,” he says.

“The growing reputation of the restaurants at the Parkway are also a great fit within our brand as we have a real focus on the quality of our food offerings. The highly regarded Ravello’s Restaurant specialises in modern European cuisine, but also has a popular carvery. We look forward to welcoming the Parkway into the group and working with them to boost visitors.”
