Chester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 17, 2009 -- Built between 1863 and 1866, The Grosvenor Hotel Chester and Spa has been owned by the family of the Duke of Westminster for over a century. The hotel is named as family grosnover hotel after that particular family as well. It stands next to the famous landmark, the Eastgate Clock. In addition to the building itself offering a long-standing history, every other historical sites and places of interest in the city of Chester are within an hours drive from here, if not less.
The Grosvenor Hotel Chester and Spa features two in-house restaurants, the Michelin star winning The Arkle and La Brasserie. The Arkle has won the Michelin star for 19 consecutive years, which means that the experience of dining here speaks for itself. Surrounded in a graceful contemporary style, the restaurant offers outstanding gourmet cuisine. Not only does The Arkle offer an exquisite and memorable dining experience, but the nearly 700 bins cellar houses one of the most extensive wine collection in all of England.
On the other hand, La Brasserie provides the ideal rendezvous for a coffee, a cocktail or even a leisurely meal. This informal Parisian-style restaurant stays open all day and offers an eclectic menu with courses from French classics to dishes influenced by flavors from around the world. The exclusive library and the comfortably tranquil drawing room provide peace of mind every time you spend a moment in these places. You can always linger over cocktails and pre-dinner drinks at the library as well as make your choice from a wide selection of malt whiskies, vintage ports and liqueurs. On the other hand, the drawing room is the perfect place to read a book, catch up with the newspapers or enjoy a light lunch or afternoon tea. The 80 bedrooms and suites are individually designed with furniture and fabrics at their finest.
The interesting thing about them is that they are all unique in designs, but offer the same emphasis on comfort and elegance. You can also relax and rejuvenate yourself at The Grosvenor Spa, that offers a series of 'rituals', designed uniquely to help balance body, mind and spirit. The great facilities at the spa include luxury treatment rooms with individual sound and temperature settings, steam room, herb sauna, ice fountain, foot spa and salt grotto. The gym here does not exactly help you grow six-pecks over a week, but the rowing machines, exercise bikes, treadmills, free weights and workbenches can help you keep up with your physical exercise if you take it regularly, so you do not miss anything, really. The Grosvenor also provides meeting facilities and private dining. And it is a great place for celebrations and weddings too. If you want to make your big day a memorable one, this is what you want. And of course, the quality of service along with the amenities provided will always exceed your expectations.
