Cairn Group has been named as the preferred operator for a new 150-bedroom hotel in Swansea.
The new hotel, which is part of a £135m ‘Swansea Central Phase One’ regeneration project, is being developed by Swansea Council as a “catalyst for wider city centre regeneration.”
The property will include a restaurant, bar and gym alongside the indoor arena which includes a 3,500-capacity indoor arena, new parkland, almost 1,000 new car parking spaces, commercial units and over 30 homes.
Neeraj Handa, director of the Cairn Group said the opportunity in Swansea is “huge”.
He added: “The new arena alone is set to attract over 230,000 visitors a year to the city, from business visitors using the new conferencing facilities to holiday-makers taking in a show.
“The major improvements across the city, teamed with the remarkable local beaches and attractions, will ensure Swansea becomes an unrivalled destination to visit in the UK, and the demand for quality hotel rooms will boost the current supply.”
