A BOURNEMOUTH hotel has been included on a list of the best places to stay in the UK in 2024.

The Nici has been named among the top 100 hotels in the country by The Times, in its annual list.

It is among 10 featured in the best beach hotel category, as journalists from the national paper tested hundreds of hotels to compile the list.

On The Nici, the list said: “Bournemouth’s hotels were more zimmer than zing until this boutique beauty burst on to the scene in the summer of 2022.

Bournemouth Echo:

“It brings addictive, Miami-inspired energy to the West Cliff seafront, thanks to perky art deco, palm-printed decor in ice-cream sundae shades.

“In 2023, it added a spa and cool indoor pool to the mix, ideal for when the weather prevents you lounging in a cabana by its Insta-catnip, 30m outdoor pool.

“The Nici’s 88 rooms are as personality packed as the public spaces, while a new poolside restaurant, opening in 2024, will ensure that summer dining is also Miami nice.”

Lukasz Dwornik, managing director of The Nici Group, said: “I am delighted that The Nici has been selected and featured in The Times 100 Best Places to Stay in the UK for 2024.

“It's a testament to the hard work that has been put in by the team, and our ongoing focus on providing our guests with a unique and incredible experience here on the south coast.

“We have plenty in store for 2024 too, with our second restaurant, Harry Rocks, opening this summer.”
