'Hotel Boom Appears To Be Over'
Northern Ireland's much documented hotel boom appears to have come to an end, according to a report which examined occupancy levels. It found the overall figure for people staying in hotels dropped by nearly 7% in 2008. October was the worst month when guest numbers fell by nearly 10%. However, the PricewaterhouseCoopers study said the fall, which was the first since 2002, was in line with a UK-wide downturn.
