UK: The WILDES Hotel Group has pushed back the opening of its upcoming property in Chester to develop a spa and additional suite.
Set to open in 2023, revised plans for the luxury boutique hotel has enabled the development of an extra suite, taking the total of guest rooms to 18.
In addition, the spa and rooftop vitality pool will feature extra treatment rooms, a thermal suite with panoramic sauna, and changing pods.
The WILDES group acquired an adjacent building in October 2021 to expand the size of the spa.
Paul Wildes, CEO of WILDES Hotel Group, said: ‘’We are thrilled to have been able to further develop different aspects of the hotel which we know will ‘wow’ at every level. Working with period buildings always comes with its challenges, but we are working closely with English Heritage and the Cheshire West and Chester Council planning teams to ensure that we are doing everything in our power to create a hotel offering like no other.
“Nearly four years after seeing the site for the first time, we want to make sure that we guarantee an exceptional guest experience and we are more than confident WILDES CHESTER will be worth the wait.’’
Whilst the hotel opening has been postponed until 2023, the restaurant X by Harry Guy is set to open in September this year. It is located adjacent to WILDES Chester and is spread across two floors.
