The hotel name screams quirky – and Oddfellows certainly delivers. Located in the Georgian Oddfellows Hall in the centre of Chester, the property was originally a society for creatives and misfits. The history of the building inspired the interiors, which are designed to be fun and sensual. Rooms have curious accessories, roll-top baths and glass-walled power showers, as well as exposed beams, views over the garden and Nespresso machines.

Chapel Chester is a collection of award-winning boutique holiday apartments in the heart of the city centre, set within a restored 1866 chapel. A refurbishment in 2017 updated the interiors but kept many of the original features including beautiful stained-glass windows and decorated beams.

If you want to be taken care of like you’re one of the family, but still enjoy privacy and comfort, the Mill hotel ticks all the boxes. During your stay, enjoy an indulgent treatment in the spa, get sweaty in the sauna and limber up in the gym. A gorgeous floating restaurant, which sits in the canal next to the hotel, is the place for pop-the-question dates, while there’s an on-site bar should a celebratory drink be needed.

    Forget visiting the historic sites in the town centre – when you stay at the DoubleTree you’re already in an 18th-century landmark. This restored manor house is near attractions including Chester Zoo and the racecourse. But with 12 acres (5ha) of landscaped grounds to explore, you might not make it off site. And there’s plenty to do here: get a massage in the spa, stroll around the walled gardens or enjoy afternoon tea with scones and jam at the Garden Room & Terrace restaurant.

    Built in 1622, Ye Olde Kings Head boutique is a charming Tudor-style property built during the Stuart period. While the building is ancient, the amenities in its seven rooms certainly are not. On the bottom floor there’s a wood-beamed pub with a private dining room. Make sure to get both dinner and breakfast here as the menu is to die for – try the fluffy pancakes with maple syrup.
