Hotel Indigo to make its debut in Chester


Boutique hotel brand ‘Hotel Indigo’ has revealed a first look of its new hotel in Chester, set to open later this year.

The hotel will open under a franchise agreement with Castlebridge Hospitality, and will offer 75 rooms.

The new-build property it will inhabit has been designed by architects Franklin Ellis.

Its design is said to have taken inspiration from three key elements of the city; its architecture, the Eastgate Clock and Chester Racecourse.

Bosses say that Hotel Indigo Chester combines local character and charm with vibrant colours and textures to give their hotel a residential feel.

Just as no two places are alike, no two Hotel Indigo properties are the same either.

Each draws inspiration from the local neighbourhood, culture and popular trends.

Guests can expect an eclectic combination of fabrics, wood panelling and references to historic people and dress from the Chester’s past.

Bethan Johnston, Hotel Indigo Chester’s general manager, 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.

“It’s really important to us that we reflect the community around us and offer a personalised stay that is tailored both to the city and the guest.”

Hotel Indigo Chester will also feature a fine dining restaurant from award-winning 2015 MasterChef champion Simon Wood.

The 96-cover restaurant, Wood Chester, will feature a nod to Simon’s signature style.

It’s set to create a relaxed, natural environment in which to enjoy his unintimidating fine dining – adding a new foodie outlet for locals.

At the heart of the restaurant will be the chef’s table and theatre kitchen providing the perfect vista for guests to watch Simon and his team as they work.

The restaurant will also feature a private dining room that will accommodate up to ten people for a meeting or dinner.
