Social network launched for hoteliers

A social network site for hotels and accommodation seekers has been launched by the founder of an online rooms directory.

Andrew Jones, has set up in response to demand for such a site from the users of the directory,, which launched 1999 and now has more than 13,000 members.

"I selected the premium domain name .co, as opposed to .com or, as it is not geographically specific and so far we have over 400 members including those from the USA, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand, as well as the UK," said Jones, who is based in Swansea. "Around 75% of members are hoteliers and the rest are people seeking accommodation.

"Hoteliers are using Roomz to network, while other people are looking for somewhere to stay."
