Expert predicts high demand for hotels in Wales
Hotels in Wales will be in high demand among holidaymakers over the next ten years, an expert has predicted.
According to tourism analyst John Wakes, the Welsh holiday industry is currently in a very good position and is likely to continue thriving during the coming decade.
Speaking to the Western Mail, he said this is because the country offers "fantastic" attractions to both domestic and international leisure travellers.
Mr Wakes tipped established honeypots such as Llandudno and Betwys y Coed to continue doing particularly well over the next few years.
However, he said many areas along the Welsh coastline are also becoming very popular with tourists at the moment.
"As long as we keep the prices reasonable and we don't get carried away, I think we're onto a winner," Mr Wakes said.
This comes after Visit Wales said that families who book accommodation in Wales will find plenty to do in the country this summer.
Tourists were pointed towards areas such as Mount Snowdon, the
Gower Peninsula and capital city Cardiff.
