Bespoke Hotels to lease Chester’s Mill Hotel & Spa following recent sale
Bespoke Hotels has secured a long-term lease to operate Chester’s historic Mill Hotel, following its recent sale. Originally unveiled in 1987, this iconic venue in central Chester features 132 en-suite bedrooms, alongside a floating restaurant, L’eau-t Cuisine, a modern bar, meetings and events space, as well as spa and leisure facilities.
Strengthening the group’s North West portfolio, which features the nearby Chester Grosvenor alongside Manchester’s Hotel Gotham, Bespoke has reached agreement with the thirty-year-old property on a long-term basis.
“We are thrilled by the prospect of working with this historic property,” said Bespoke Hotels CEO, Haydn Fentum. “The opportunity to strengthen our presence both in Chester and the North West of England is an exciting one, given how this market has flourished and become highly significant within our portfolio.”
“It has given me enormous pride to develop the business over the last 30 years,” added Gordon Vickers, founder of The Mill. “I am pleased to have found a suitable home for the hotel which will preserve its atmosphere and culture.”
