Set in 2,000 acres of rolling parkland in South East Wales, Celtic Manor Resort is a five-star golf, spa and leisure resort which has hosted the Ryder Cup and a NATO Summit.
The facilities across the Celtic Manor Resort site include more than 2,000 parking spaces available to guests and visitors including car parks at the Resort Hotel, Manor House and Coldra Court Hotel, which comprise two large surface car parks and a two-level car park servicing the ICCW.
Revenue from parking charges helps to support Celtic Manor’s continued investment into improving facilities to ensure guests enjoy a five-star experience across the resort. Charges vary by the location of the car park on site and duration of stay.
To accommodate the resort’s needs, Celtic Manor turned to parking solutions specialist, WPS. Its ParkAdvance™ barrier-based Pay-on-Foot solution, with its robust, dependable reliability, exceptional build quality, ease of customer use, fast operation and high-quality aesthetics has proved to be the ideal choice.
The whole system is supported by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR). It enables staff and pre-booked guests and conference attendees access to the car park automatically, when the highly-accurate cameras recognise qualifying number plates. The system is served by a total of nine pay stations across all sites, and traffic flow is efficiently managed with eight entry and eight exit lanes.
