The manager of Chester boutique hotel Oddfellows has unveiled plans to venture into the serviced-apartment market.
The first of five planned apartments is expected to open in the city at the end of April, according to a report on North West Caterer.
Oddfellows manager Sarah Dougherty said: “We have always thought Oddfellows would work well with apartments. They offer concrete benefits to those looking for a longer stay and a little bit more room with all the convenience of being attached to a hotel with a restaurant and bar.
“We have lots of business travellers who stay with us for four or five nights at a time and families visiting the city at the weekend – the apartments will be absolutely ideal for them," she added.
Dougherty said the apartments, which will be situated around a courtyard, will be designed by Louise James, who was behind the renovation of Oddfellow’s ‘Grown Up Bar’.
