Research into the Island's hotel sector is urgently needed according to the Department of Economic Development.

Plans are in place for a study which will assess the future of the sector - examining the potential in redeveloping and repositioning existing stock.

Self-catering accommodation figures are steadily increasing as bed spaces in hotels have slumped by a quarter since 2003.

Described as a 'key driver of the economy' by Minister Laurence Skelly - the department says it requires current information on issues affecting the sector.

The qualitative and quantitative research will be conducted by 'Hotel Solutions' imminently.
