Accommodation Description:

Full of period charm and character - Oddfellows is a 17th century manor house now beautifully restored and offering luxurious 5 star accommodation in the heart of historic Chester. Pamper yourself in an atmosphere that is unique, quirky, and utterly compelling. Eat, drink, and luxuriate at Oddfellows.

Oddfellows Hall on Chesters Lower Bridge Street is a spectacular 17th Century Georgian manor house which we've renovated to give it back its character and grandeur; and some. Outside, there is a members terrace and a phenomenal walled garden. Inside, the splendiferousness continues with tea rooms, restaurants, various late night bars, a club, a members lounge and 4 very individual hotel rooms.

Oddfellows is Chesters new open house members club; a place of eating, meeting, fine dining, champagne sipping, cocktail shaking, afternoon teaing, dancing and sleeping. Everything is designed to make the usual unusual; the ordinary extraordinary. Decor veers from gracious sophistication to dramatic intensity.

Nothing matches, but everything makes complete sense.Without wishing to sound arrogant, when you come to Oddfellows, before you know it, were bedfellows. What can we say? People just can't help wanting to sleep with us. It may be our suave sophistication.

Or it may be our four utterly fantabulous hotel rooms. Leave your willpower at the door. Resistance is futile.

Just accept that, here, there are no diets, no denials. For how could you restrain yourself in the face of such marvellous, nay, miraculous menus? Ooohhh, aaahhh, mmmmm; for want of a better way to describe them. If drinks were art, then Oddfellows would be the national gallery.

But we would argue that drinks are, in fact, art. At least, they are the way we do them (and its not just the alcohol talking). Our bartenders are artists in their own right.

As well as being highly trained, their understanding of drinks is instinctive. They sculpt, they define, they experiment, they create. Their materials are the best; the right ice, the right glasses, the right ingredients at the right temperature.

With regards to Music, prepare for a journey. Theres not much to pack. Just some smiles and a few gems of conversation.

The journey takes you through light and shade, highs and lulls, speeding up, slowing down, climbing ever higher, to a new peak of enjoyment. Your transportation on this emotive quest is a combination of lilting melodies, powerful riffs, finger-drumming chords, seductive lyrics and captivating beats; ie; the soundtrack to Oddfellows. Can a cup of tea be glamorous? We think so.

When its served in exquisite cups, in gracious surroundings where everything glides and floats with luscious loveliness. Afternoon tea is nibbly, naughtily served, and it can be a grown up occasion or a family affair. When the plates are cleared, charm makes way for charisma as pre-dinner drinks are sipped.
