Introducing the all new nexusvenue newsletter!

We are mixing things up a little with, not only a new look, but also with a new way of introducing venues.  The same fabulous pictures and vital statistics but with only a hint as to which venues they are.  Can you guess?  Do feel free to send us the venues names and we’ll let you know if you’re right!

Not all venue finders visit hotels and venues but we think this is really important, so will highlight any that we have seen ourselves.  And if you think you would like to hold an event in any of these properties, get in touch and we will contact them on your behalf.

What’s New …

Now fully open after a multimillion pound refurbishment that took several years, this central London landmark is set to become a favourite amongst meeting organisers and those who are looking for relaxed luxury in “the place to be seen”. Whether it’s a drinks reception for 450 or a board meeting for 8 this hotel is set to impress!

Only a short walk from Swiss Cottage this London Hotel is outside the congestion zone and offers a good mix of meeting rooms, with natural daylight and state of the art technology, the largest of which can accommodate up to 350 people in theatre style.  There are 311 bedrooms including the sleek King Suite pictured here, a gym, indoor pool and Italian Restaurant.

If you’re looking for something new in the heart of England this airy, lakeside venue could be a good option.  The one open space can hold up to 400 delegates or can be split into two. The venue is supported by 2 hotels on site for all your accommodation needs (358 bedrooms in total) and any breakout rooms that you might need.  And there is outside space too.

What We Saw …

We have covered this before but at last Sylvain got to visit this stunning estate in the Cotswolds which consists of 3 properties, Hilly huts, tree houses, an alfresco deck, and soon to be added Hideaway huts.  Everything is very on-trend with soft Scandic style decoration throughout.  Not for those light on budget but if you are looking for a special venue, away from distractions, all this could be it!

This hotel, just outside Windsor, that we have mentioned before was used by a small group for a meeting, dinner and accommodation.  They said that the setting, the food, meeting room and bedrooms were all very nice and the event went very well.   Having visited this one myself I have to agree!

What You Thought …

London can be very expensive but travel a little out of the centre and you can find hotels with great facilities at reasonable rates.  We had very positive feedback for a hotel in Chiswick, that has featured in a newsletter previously, so will be happy to put it forward again.

Incentive trips are always a lot of fun and sometimes it’s good to have an extra pair of hands onsite to ensure that everything runs smoothly.  A weekend in a Mediaeval Castle with a knight’s school and a crusader challenge, dinner in the castle and accommodation in a wooden cabin were the order of the day and Sylvain was there for the whole event to make sure no-one got left in the dungeons!
