Premier Inn gets green light for second city centre hotel

A 94-bed Premier Inn hotel has been given the green light within empty space at Chester ’s Grosvenor Shopping Centre.

Mall owners HIG Chester Property Sarl have received approval from Cheshire West and Chester Council to transform vacant retail and office space at the Pepper Street entrance into a hotel with bar and restaurant.

The hotel is an alternative to previous plans for a second phase of Chester’s dining quarter.

That’s because only one potential restaurant occupier came forward. However, the eatery – Caribbean restaurant Turtle Bay – will still be accommodated alongside the hotel.
