The opening of Hotel Indigo in Bath marks the IHG brand’s 18th hotel opening in the UK. 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.
Taking its design cues from the city’s surrounding Georgian architecture and the history of the local neighbourhood, Hotel Indigo Bath combines modern design and historical architecture.
Guests will have five different room types to choose from, reflecting the surrounding neighbourhood of Bath, each with its distinctive styling:
'Romance & Mischief’: Taking inspiration from the infamous Debutant Season in Bath, where grand evenings of gambling and frivolity mixed with afternoon tea and whispers of romantic promises.
‘Literary Hideaway’: Reflecting Bath’s abundance of famous authors, these rooms are designed to be cosier and reflect a getaway for creative writers.
‘Georgian Architecture’: With the wall at the back of the bed lined with ornate ceiling sconce covers and grand high ceilings, this room amplifies the grand Georgian residence feel.
‘Garden’: Moving through the design periods, these rooms are a newly-built modern extension. With a more contemporary, light and youthful modern design, these rooms are reflective of the garden in which they sit.
‘Underground Vault’: Built in the 18th century the vaults are an amazing example of historical architecture and house the hotel Suites!
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 40in flat screen TV.
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.
