This will be Somerston’s first Hotel Indigo property and forms part of a larger portfolio of Hotel Indigo hotels being developed by the group - a clear vote of confidence in the brand. The hotel is expected to open towards the end of 2016.
The 121-room property will be rebranded from two existing hotels and a restaurant all located in a Grade 1 listed historic Georgian building on South Parade. It will feature a restaurant, bar and gym.
Hotel Indigo Bath will be located right at the heart of Bath city centre, close to Bath Abbey and to the famous Thermae Bath Spa. The hotel will be perfect for those wanting to explore and discover the many historic and cultural experiences offered by this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Every Hotel Indigo property is designed to reflect the local neighbourhood and Hotel Indigo Bath will be no exception. From the exterior architecture to the hotel’s interior design and locally inspired menus; every Hotel Indigo is unique to its surroundings, and no two hotels are the same.
Anna Corkill, IHG’s Development Director for the UK, said: “The boutique hotel market is the fastest growing segment in the industry and our pioneering Hotel Indigo brand is leading the field in Europe. We’re thrilled to have found such a perfect site in Bath and we’re looking forward to working with St James’ Hotels Group to open a brand-defining Hotel Indigo property.”
Shaun Robinson, Managing Director of St James’ Hotels Group said: “Hotel Indigo and Bath are the perfect fit. I am very excited to be bringing the brand to a place that enjoys a world-wide reputation as a ‘must-see’ city drawing guests from every continent, keen to experience the architecture, the culture and the history.”
