HOTELS in the UK are expected to face a challenging year as weak economic prospects take their toll on the sector.

PwC’s latest forecast released today shows revenue per available room (revpar) is expected to fall two per cent to just under £60.

Occupancy is expected to fall for the third consecutive year by two percentage points to 79 per cent.
