Andrew Bourne, who formerly worked as head pastry chef at Claridge's hotel in London, has bought and refurbished the Alexandra Court hotel in Congleton.
With the support of a six-figure loan from HSBC UK, a new outdoor veranda and sitting area has been created at the Victorian property, as well as a complete redecoration of all 14 individually designed rooms.
Bourne said: "We aim to provide affordable luxury accommodation for the area and create a unique boutique venue for family celebrations and business meetings."
John Paulson, relationship manager for South Cheshire and North Staffordshire, HSBC UK, added: "The Alexandra Court hotel has a strong reputation and, with Andrew at the helm, we are certain the business will continue to flourish. We wish them every success for the future."
