Oddfellows, an 18-bedroom boutique hotel in Chester, is to expand with the launch of five apartments.
Situated around a courtyard, the apartments are located a short walk from the hotel, which operates the garden by Simon Radley restaurant and two bars. The first apartment opens later this month.
Sarah Dougherty, manager of Oddfellows said the apartments will appeal to guests who are looking for a longer stay and more room, combined with the convenience of being attached to a hotel with a restaurant and bar.
Designed by Louise James, who has recently completed the refurbishment of the Grown Up Bar by Taittinger at Oddfellows, the look of the apartments have the theme of "whimsical travel" with wallpaper depicting stacks of old leather suitcases and hot air balloon flights, Vivienne Westwood tartan which resembles old suitcase linings, retro waiting room signs and a large practical OS map to enable guests be able to explore the local area.
Oddfellows is operated on behalf of its owners by the nearby five-AA-red-star, 80 bedroom Chester Grosvenor hotel.
Cost of the apartments is £175 per night for a minimum of three nights.
