Work starts on new £5m boutique hotel in Chester

Work is underway on a £5m project to transform a historic building in Chester into a luxury boutique hotel, destination restaurant and spa.

Due to open in late summer 2022, the hotel will include 18 bedrooms. Each of the rooms will be unique with quirky elements such as a free-standing bathtub with a skylight and a four-seater cinema.

Other facilities will include a fine-dining restaurant and a spa with a 32ft rooftop pool and terrace, multiple treatment rooms and a feature amphitheatre sauna.

“The acquisition of 10 Bridge Street is another exciting milestone for Wildes Chester. The additional space has meant we are able to update our already exciting plans for the spa and restaurant, elevating the offer even further and ensuring the hotel, spa and restaurant will be like nothing the city has seen before,” says Paul Wildes, CEO of The Wildes Hotel Group, which has a successful portfolio of hotels in the North of England.

The Chester site will be the first fully-branded Wildes hotel in the hotel group’s portfolio, following Van Dyk by Wildes as the first venture into Wildes own branded hotels.
