UK: The WILDES Hotel Group has purchased the building 10 Bridge Street which sits next to the development site of the first WILDES branded hotel in Chester.

The £5 million project will see the transformation of former offices into a boutique hotel, restaurant and spa. It is expected to open in late summer 2022.

As part of the plans, WILDES Hotel Group has acquired 10 Bridge Street to expand the size of the spa. It provides extended roof space which would allow the spa to now be open to the public as well as hotel guests.

Initial plans reveal a 32-foot rooftop pool and terrace with multiple treatment rooms and amphitheatre sauna.

The group has also announced updated plans for the restaurant. As a result of purchasing the next-door building, the hotel’s fine-dining restaurant will move into the new space. Where the restaurant was once situated will now become a relaxed and informal dining area and bar.

Paul Wildes, CEO of The WILDES Hotel Group, said: “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. Work is now well underway on the site and we will be revealing more details in the coming months. Watch this space!”

The WILDES Group has a portfolio of hotels, restaurants and spas in the North West of the UK. The Chester site marks the first fully-branded WILDES property for the group. It will feature 18 rooms, with one of these offering a private four-seater cinema.
