See you by the sea!
The team at First Choice Conference & Events do enjoy our nautical adventures, so we’re naturally a fan of Harbour Hotels. It’s not just waterside locations either – with new vibrant hotels in Guildford, Bristol and Chichester and refurbishments at Sidmouth, Christchurch and St Ives.
Being a ‘Lifestyle Brand for Business’, the hotels are all of a modern concept with individual quirky features that make staying or holding events a lovely experience. Each hotel boasts contemporary bedrooms – many with characteristics that emphasise their stunning location, or history of the building. Core business traveller amenities include work space in each room, Wi-Fi and access to HarSpas – which include on-site gyms and indoor swimming pools. Each hotel houses individually-designed bars and restaurants to offer our business guests a fantastic food and beverage experience.
Delivering excellent meetings and events is also a key aspect – each venue has unique and flexible event space which can accommodate groups of all sizes and poses endless choices; a sea view in Brighton, Christchurch or Sidmouth; the former Bank Vaults or Grand Banking Hall in Bristol, or large space with access to a terrace at Guildford Harbour Hotel…before moving into the new ‘Long Bar Late’ for an event with a difference!
The award-winning Jetty restaurant concept was named the UK’s best seafood restaurant and received rave reviews from national food critics, with Jay Rayner from the Observer describing his experience as “a meal of sunlight and flavour and professionalism, at the place where land meets sea”. We agree with Jay, having recently dined at Jetty Bristol – we’re still talking about our amazing culinary experience!
And rather exciting news – this October marks the opening of the iconic Southampton hotel, with a yacht-inspired hotel featuring the city’s highest restaurant, 85 bedrooms, 5 meeting rooms and a HarSpa – all overlooking the central Ocean Village Marina.
But don’t just take our word for it!…
Here’s your chance to win a night’s stay at the new Southampton Harbour Hotel (valid from November 2017 – March 2018) for two people with dinner in the award-winning Jetty restaurant. As if this isn’t exciting enough, the prize also includes a full body massage for each person in the brand new HarSpa!
