 A 200-year-old hotel in the centre of Newport has closed blaming a "severe" downturn in trade.
The Kings Hotel ceased trading on Tuesday with the loss of 20 permanent jobs.
General manager Maria Thomas said a handful of staff remained and were trying to rearrange wedding bookings.
The hotel had also been a popular music venue and hosted concerts by the singer Van Morrison in its ballroom in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
