Craig McIntosh back in Chester as manager of Oddfellows

Previously at the five-star Browns in London, where he led the meetings and events team, he brings more than 15 years’ experience in hotels including a decade at The Chester Grosvenor.

Chester-born Craig (pictured) said: ‘I’m delighted to take the helm of this completely unique property and return to the city I love.

“The Chester hotel is the original and first, but the collection will grow with the second property this year and there are plans afoot for more. It’s exciting to be involved in a business that is growing.

“There is a huge importance placed on training and coaching the team from the top at Oddfellows and I see this as a key part of my role.

“We have a team of brilliant young hospitality stars and part of the wonderful journey ahead is the challenge of mentoring and supporting them to succeed within a growing business.’

Jonathan Slater, operator of Oddfellows Hotels, said: “With changes afoot and the opening of our new hotel, Paul Cookson is moving to take up the position of general manager at Oddfellows On The Park.

“We’ve both worked with Craig before and he is an obvious choice to take on the role of hotel manager at Chester. Craig is a young talented hospitality professional who will be magnificent in this role and we are delighted to bring him back to Chester.”
