The Grosvenor Estate made the decision to appoint Bespoke on a long leasehold basis following the retirement of Jonathan Slater, who was the managing director of the 80-bedroom hotel for more than 30 years.
Bespoke said that guests of the hotel will continue to receive a “high standard” at the hotel and the the same “quality” food and ambience will remain, also pledging to ensure that the hotel will still be owned by the family of the Duke of Westminster.
Haydn Fentum, chairman of Bespoke Hotels, said: “Bespoke is proud to be working with the Grosvenor Estate and representing the Chester Grosvenor. Our team will ensure there is no change in the superb service guests can expect from the hotel and their stay.
“At the same time we expect to see the business of the Chester Grosvenor benefit from the operational and marketing expertise Bespoke brings, particularly with regards to the Bespoke network of hotels, as well as The Chester Grosvenor’s stylish little sister property, The Hotel Gotham, which has just opened in Manchester.”
Jeremy Newsum, executive trustee at the Grosvenor Estate, said “We are pleased that Bespoke Hotels will continue to maintain the service for which the Chester Grosvenor is known and we look forward to a positive long term relationship with the group.”
