The Chester Grosvenor and Spa has been named as the UK's number one hotel in the Insiders' Select List of the world's best hotels for quality and value, compiled by the world's largest online travel booking site, Expedia.
The list has been compiled by considering three factors - the reviews of more than one million travellers after completing a stay at a hotel booked on Expedia sites, a value rating that compares each hotel's average daily rates to similar properties, and the expertise of more than 400 Expedia market managers around the world.
"By leveraging our rich hotel content, customer reviews and regional knowledge, we are able to deliver one of the most informed lists of the best hotels across the glove," said Jonathan Cudworth, director of product management, Expedia.co.uk.
As well as being crowned best UK hotel, the 80-bedroom Chester Grosvenor and Spa was also ranked sixth best in Europe and 11th globally.
"We work hard to provide guests with the best possible service to ensure they have the best experience during their stay with us," said Jonathan Slater, managing director, the Chester Grosvenor and Spa. "We are so proud to have been voted as the best hotel in the UK by our guests - as they really are the ones to matter most to us."
