IHG Hotels & Resorts further expands its boutique footprint with the opening of the highly anticipated Hotel Indigo® Bath. Set in a beautiful honey coloured Georgian terrace built in the 18th century, the 166 room Grade I listed building has hosted famous figures from history including Sir Walter Scott, William Wilberforce, and the Duke of York.
Surrounded by culture, Bath is famous for literature, romance, and historic architecture. Also renowned for its ancient Roman baths, the city is home to the only natural thermal hot springs you can use in Britain. Bath is also home to a large collection of museums and galleries and a lively city centre filled with independent shops and restaurants.
Just as no two neighbourhoods are alike, no two Hotel Indigo properties are alike. Each is designed to uniquely reflect the local culture, character, and history of the surrounding area.
Taking its design cues from the city’s surrounding Georgian architecture and the history of the local neighbourhood, Hotel Indigo Bath creates a truly memorable experience by artfully combining modern design and historical architecture. Guests will have five different room types to choose from, reflecting the surrounding neighbourhood of Bath:
All rooms are equipped with comfy Hypnos beds with luxury Egyptian cotton linen, spa-inspired bathrooms, Nespresso coffee machines, high speed Wi-Fi and a variety of channels on a 40” flat screen TV.
Nicola Fender, Hotel Manager at Hotel Indigo Bath commented: “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.”
Hotel Indigo Bath is also home to “The Elder”, a new and exciting restaurant from multi-award-winning West Country restaurateur Mike Robinson, co-owner of the only Michelin-starred London pub, the Harwood Arms in Fulham. He also opened The Woodsman restaurant and bar at Hotel Indigo® Stratford – Upon- Avon last year, winning the Good Food Guide Best New Entry 2020.
The Elder is the place to enjoy authentic, honest and timeless British cooking, with a focus on sustainability, seasonality, and locally sourced produce and is open for lunch and dinner with an à la carte menu. In the bar and the south facing terrace, visitors can enjoy small plates, alongside cocktails and Somerset ciders.
There are currently 121 Hotel Indigo properties open globally including the recently opened Hotel Indigo® Verona – Grand Hotel Des Arts and Hotel Indigo® Larnaca, with another 102 in the pipeline to open in the next 3-5 years. The first Hotel Indigo in the Arabian Gulf, Hotel Indigo® Dubai Downtown is also set to open later this year.
