Heritage Park hotel undergoes £1m renovation

The Heritage Park hotel in Trehafod in the Rhondda Valley has completed a £1m renovation project.

The 43-bedroom hotel has been owned by MKK Hotels since March 2017 and appointed operations manager/general manager Jonathan Smith later that year to oversee the full renovation and take over day-to-day operational running of the hotel. The property was previously overseen by general manager Keith Woodward, who left the company shortly before MKK took over.

Built in 1992, the hotel stands on the site of the old Lewis Merthyr Colliery and nods to its past life in its interior decoration. The beams in the restaurant were lifted from the Old Cardiff Docks. As a significant part of the renovations, the hotel has been restructured to host weddings and events and has appointed two events co-ordinators as a result.

Smith said: "We are delighted with the way that the renovations have turned out; there was always masses of potential in this building, and I am glad that our vision has finally been brought to life. We are looking forward to providing guests with a relaxing stay away from home, plus we would love to become a hub for the local community. I am thrilled with the team that we have put together, and I am proud of our achievements in such a small space of time, on turning this hotel around, and I am excited to see where the future takes us."
