Intercontinental Hotels Group has opened a Hotel Indigo property in the Somerset city of Bath.
Business Traveller first reported plans for the property back in 2015, which has seen two existing hotels on South Parade converted into the Hotel Indigo Bath.
The 166-room hotel is housed within a Grade I listed Georgian terrace building, and features five room types “reflecting the surrounding neighbourhood of Bath”.
‘Romance and Mischief’ rooms have playing card side tables and artwork which plays on the theme of romance, while ‘Literary Hideaway’ rooms feature a traditional writer’s bureau and captain’s chair. ‘Georgian Architecture’ rooms benefit from high ceilings and “ornate ceiling sconce covers”; ‘Garden’ rooms are housed within a newly built extension, and ‘Underground Vault’ rooms are located within the building’s 18th century vaults.
The property also features The Elder restaurant by West Country restaurateur Mike Robinson, offering “authentic, honest and timeless British cooking, with a focus on sustainability, seasonality, and locally sourced produce”.
The Hotel Indigo brand launched in 2004, and currently has around 120 properties across over 15 countries, including recent openings in Cyprus, Madrid and Brussels. There are a further 102 hotels in the brand’s pipeline, scheduled to open in the next three to five years.
Commenting on the news Nicola Fender, hotel manager at Hotel Indigo Bath said:
“At Hotel Indigo we believe in providing more than just a good night’s sleep, we want to create an experience as unique as the neighbourhood in which we are found. With our unique design and thoughtful touches inspired by the local history and surrounding influences, guests can get a flavour of the neighbourhood through our hotel before heading off to explore the city for themselves.”
