Seeing as we are discussing Bristol hotels picking up scraps...

I guess this has been made more viable by the conference centre going up at Celtic Manor?

I wonder if between the conference centre and the new arena if we'll see a few more hotels go up in the city region?

Interesting that the A grade office space is already under offer to a single company, who would that be?

I'd imagine the prospect of additional people coming in with the ICC is definitely behind this one, especially at a 4* rating (as the Celtic Manor itself will cater for the high flyers). When the arena is fully confirmed I wouldn't be surprised to see a small rise in hotel rooms in the city either.

That sort of depends on how you draw the boundaries.

The city of Bristol itself has a poulation of around 460,000 while the total urban area (as defined by the ONS) is 724,000. The equivalent figures for Cardiff are 335,000 and 477,000 (2011 figures).

However the total population of the the Cardiff city region is 1.5m compared to the 1.2m who live in the West of England combined authority area. To my mind the larger regions are more relevant when assesing the viability of developments like arenas.


I knew the Cardiff Capital region was around the 1.5m mark, but I had no idea it was greater than Bristol. Qatar Airways clearly had access to that information :D
