Welcome to the beautiful Macdonald New Blossoms Hotel, a classical boutique hotel situated in the heart of arguably one of the most historic cities in the UK, Chester.

Macdonald New Blossoms Hotel started life as a coaching inn in 1650, making it Chester's oldest hotel.  We have tastefully retained its unique character, whilst at the same time gently bringing it into the 21st Century, making it a truly unique place to stay.

I came to the hotel in September 2012, having joined Macdonald Hotels three years earlier.  After starting my career some 20 years earlier in my native South Africa, it is a privilege to work in such a stunning location.

I am fortunate enough to have a wonderful, dedicated team of 48 staff, who all share my commitment to go above and beyond what our guests and clients expect of us.  We have exciting times ahead, with a refurbishment of our restaurant, which is due to open in May, along with our Head Chef, Csaba aiming to achieve his first AA Rosette within the next twelve months.

At Macdonald New Blossoms Hotel, we aim to create a luxurious, boutique setting within the city.  Over 360 years after it first opened, we are still welcoming people every day, and we hope that once you have stayed with us, you will feel as much passion for our hotel and city as we do.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
