Major new hotel and spa with roof-top pool planned for Chester city centre

14 February 2020

Plans have been unveiled to convert empty offices by The Cross in Chester into a boutique hotel and spa – complete with a roof-top pool.

The Wildes Hotel Group has submitted planning application to convert the vacant offices at the top of Bridge Street and will be acquiring a long lease on the prominent and historic property in the heart of Chester city centre.

Wildes Chester will, subject to obtaining planning consent, open in spring 2021. It will feature 16 unique bedrooms, a bar and restaurant with outdoor seating, set within the historical Rows of Chester with views on to Eastgate Street.

The Grade II-listed building was developed in 1892 by architect Thomas M Lockwood.

It features huge fireplaces, stone windows and original beams. It will be sensitively refurbished to retain the period features while introducing an interior design that takes influence from key venues in London and around the world.
