Hotel Indigo Chester is celebrating after winning two recent awards. The contemporary boutique hotel has won the Gold Accommodation Award in the 2023 Taste Chester Awards and The Forge Restaurant has earned a TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Award for 2023.

In its 21st year, the Taste Cheshire Awards are designed to celebrate the best of the county’s food and drink scene, from restaurants and pubs to producers and suppliers. They are also the only publicly voted awards of their kind in Cheshire. In a glamourous ceremony
on 27 September, over 400 people from across Cheshire’s food, drink, and hospitality industries gathered to honour the best and brightest in the business.

Against very competitive field, Hotel Indigo Chester earned the top Accommodation Award with The Chester Grosvenor and Abode Hotel claiming the silver and bronze awards respectively.

Located at Hotel Indigo Chester, The Forge has quickly built a successful reputation as one of Chester’s best restaurants due to its delicious food and unrivalled service. TripAdvisor, the world’s leading travel review site, have been running their Travellers' Choice Awards since 2002. They showcase the best restaurants in multiple categories and regions, based on the reviews and opinions of millions of diners from around the world.

The awards are decided from the views of real-life diners’ insights collected over a 12-month period on the TripAdvisor platform.

By earning Travellers' Choice Award, The Forge has shown itself as a restaurant among the top 10% of all listings on TripAdvisor, with consistently strong reviews and demonstrating a commitment to hospitality excellence.

Scott Rankin, General Manager of Hotel Indigo Chester said: “It was such a pleasure to be nominated at the Taste Cheshire Awards and to win the Accommodation Award, amongst some fantastic competition, was even better. There are some amazing people working at
Hotel Indigo Chester and The Forge, and these two awards shows that pulling together can produce some brilliant results. It is a very rewarding achievement for all the teams’ efforts.”
