Oddfellows Hotels are independently run and passionately delivered. Named after the band of misfits that was historically the Oddfellows society, we like our team to be as individual as our hotels.
Our employees are the crux of our business. They work and play hard, go more than the extra mile for our guests and understand that the only way to be great in hospitality, is to deliver with enthusiasm and panache. We like hotel experience but ultimately, it’s the individual that matters.
In return, employees are looked after really well. We reward them, train them and we let them play a creative role in the way this exciting business is developing.

Oddfellows, Chester, is a Georgian delight comprising of 18 bedrooms and 3 fully serviced apartments, only footsteps from the River Dee and on the loveliest avenue in the city. Bedrooms range from characterful attic rooms with double baths to huge duplex suites.
Events at Oddfellows are run like clockwork and delivered with style, all set in the private first floor expanse where boxing hares fight it out and the private roof terrace looks out over Chester’s chimneypots.
The Restaurant serves modern British classics with an Oddfellows twist - inside where trees grow through tables or in our Secret Garden where outdoor fires and canopies make al fresco drinking and dining an all-year-round experience.
You’ll be passionate about our service and have bags of team spirit.
In return, we’ll offer you a fun place to work. You’ll become part of the ‘odd’ family and we’ll invest in your training and development.
