We were delighted to secure Bournemouth's 5 star Hotel; The Nici


With a brief stipulating a 'wow' factor, we were delighted to secure Bournemouth's Nici Hotel for Saffery Champness to enjoy a exclusive use of for the entire event.

The newly refurbished destination hotel perched on Bournemouth’s West Cliff, offers spectacular sea views, landscaped gardens, conference rooms, a brand new spa and gym, outdoor pool and easy access down to miles of award-winning sandy beaches.

Taking its inspiration from South Beach, Miami; The Nici was perfectly suited for the event and offered Saffery Champness an in and outdoor setting like no other.

With the Hotel serving as the base camp for a fun-filled 3 days, we also sourced 5 local restaurants with exemplary reputations to cater for their diverse team. These ranged from Sandbank's finest fresh fish restaurant at Rick Stein's, through to a local legends such as Isabel's Brasserie.

In addition to the Nici's in house facilities we also provided away-day activities including Clay Pigeon Shooting and Chef-lead Cookery Masterclasses within the New Forest's Chewton Glen Estate.
