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.’
