Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 23 July 2015
  • Period covered: May 2015
  • Next update: 4 August 2015
The occupancy surveys provide trend information on the demand of tourist accommodation in Wales.

The surveys act as a monitor of the performance and the results are widely used by operators, Visit Wales, local authorities and other organisations involved in planning, marketing and developing tourism resources.

We monitor the occupancy levels across the following accommodation types:

  • hotels
  • guesthouses
  • self-catering
  • bed & breakfast
  • hostels and bunkhouses.

The results are presented by sector at Wales and regional level, with further data on performance by accommodation type, grading, location and tariff.

Please note that the monthly results are provisional. Final data are used in the annual report.

Revision note

Summary figures for Guesthouse/ B&B occupancy and Self-Catering Occupancy within the release were revised on 23 July 2015 as figures for the month of May were originally used rather than year to May.
