PREMIER Inn is creating 160 jobs with an expansion across South Wales.
Earlier this month the Whitbread-owned hotel chain created 70 jobs with a new hotel and restaurant development in Barry. It will now follow that up with new hotels in Newport and Tenby.
The 60-bed hotel the company is planning at 54 High Street in Newport will create around 45 jobs.
Meanwhile, in Tenby, Premier Inn is planning the creation of a 61-bedroom small-format hotel at The Gatehouse Development. Whitbread is investing £4m in the scheme which will create approximately 45 new jobs.
