The first ever Brighton & Hove Hotels Association Awards night was held on 19th November, where over 300 guests dressed in their finest, gathered at the Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel to celebrate the achievements of our industry. Eight out of nine awards went to hotels and guest houses, but the main award recognising an individual's contribution, 'The Outstanding Personality of 2014' was won by Arif Said, Nineteen's Assistant Manager!!
Arif was nominated for the invaluable work he has done in the past year in keeping the business running and keeping our guests happy when I was ill, which included enormous personal sacrifice, care and support to both me and the company.
The award category was judged and presented by JuiceFM's breakfast show host Hanna Neter. I am delighted and enormously proud that Nineteen and Arif in particular has been recognised for the great service and commitment to excellence provided to our guests in the past year.
