Quietly opening earlier this year, but with plenty to shout about, BOHOTEL is Macclesfield's first independent hotel, with a bohemian edge.

Owned and ran by Macclesfield historic property rescuer Laura Mayall, it is located on Macclesfield's West Chestergate, an up-and-coming part of town with three new businesses opening on the street in as many months.

One of these being casual but chic bar and eatery Suburban Green, which is what you are first greeted with when arriving at BOHOTEL.

If you're not sticking around for a delicious brunch or locally-brewed beer, the matte black stairs beckon to where you will be staying.

You head up the 'meek but chic' staircase and hallways to one of the six rooms. Despite being just above the bar, the noise immediately dissipates as you head into your room.

All rooms carry their own character and charm, particularly given the historic nature of the building, right up until the two loft rooms with a slanted roof.

However, Room 1 absolutely steals the show. Boasting two sinks, a bath just inches from your superking sized bed, and elegant furnishings.

Despite the check-in being reception-free, it was reassuring to know that help - if ever needed - was just a few minutes away.

BOHOTEL host Laura was available within two ticks, and it was refreshing to speak the owner knowing that she would deal with any queries directly.

She even offered an extra surprise during my two day stay. This was on top of the free chocolates, biscuits and Parma Violet sweets in the room.

Among the other highlights of the stay was ample amounts of quality tea and coffee (none of the naff sachets you get in chained hotels), and more plug sockets than I've had hot dinners.

Having both a bath and shower - a rarity for a rental room in Macclesfield - was also a superb luxury. Please note: Not every room has this.

Each room features a meticulous selection of antiques and ornaments, that all seamlessly work together.

The rooms itself were spotless, and I had no issues with the facilities. One negative would be that I didn't stay for longer!

BOHOTEL stakes a claim for wider Macclesfield ambitions of becoming a destination town.

Buoyed with the support of the delicious food and drink from Suburban Green downstairs, and the benefits of listing on Airbnb, the hotel should hopefully provide a big boost to our town's economy.

While it is mostly going to be booked by businesspeople and those visiting family in our town, the romantic and regal vibes of the hotel would make it an apt getaway for even Macclesfield residents to treat themselves to.

BOHOTEL's rooms range from £175 for two nights to £300 for two nights.

Here are the links and pictures to book each room.
