Nothing could be better than a road trip to a beautiful Bath in Somerset. Picture this, honey-coloured Georgian Terrace right in the city centre of Bath in Somerset. Hotel Indigo Bath opened its doors in September 2020 with 166 guest rooms designed around five beautiful themes inspired by Bath itself. As hotel stay trends go this is the hotel to explore new ways of hosting guests for 2022.
There is no private parking for this hotel. The hotel does offer valet parking for £40 a night. The pay and display car park opposite the hotel entrance is £17 for 24 hours in 2023. Make sure you use the app to pay for your parking before you leave the car. As the parking attendant is lurking around all the time. You have to walk a good 300m with your luggage to reception. So make sure you have all your wardrobes tucked away in nice luxury luggage.
Don’t attempt double parking on South Parade road which is where Hotel Indigo Bath is, you may end up with a parking ticket.
The reception area is stunning and the attention to detail is worth exploring once you have settled into the hotel. Make time to sit around all the nooks in this hotel.
The floor-to-ceiling windows in this reception area maximize its spectacular interior design.
The Drawing Room
When it’s time to unwind, enjoy a quiet drink in one of the public areas. This room is like walking into a gallery full of artists showcasing their work. Art is still very much the lifeblood of Indigo hotels. The interior design is a mix of the very interesting story’s told within the hotel. The velvet lounges are very cosy and a perfect area to meet and greet people.
Plenty of nooks to take Instagram shots. And I noticed all sorts of games to be able to play with your family, friends, or loved ones.
This impressive area leads to a wonderful call-to-action lift access. Below is the view from the lift, and what a view of central Bath.
I loved the carpet within the lift, which is very quirky, it shows that this hotel is fun and playful to explore.
After a day of driving and exploring Bath, it was nice to walk back and escape to Hotel Indigo Bath. With all the features of a standard room, it was nice to unwind in additional space and natural sunlight. Each room is elegantly decorated to bring a sense of comfort and serenity.
All rooms are equipped with Hypnos beds. And for many travellers, fresh white sheets and sumptuous bathrobes are a highlight of their hotel experience. Hotel Indigo Bath does not disappoint with its luxury Egyptian cotton linen. Choosing from a selection of high-quality cotton pillows wrapped in crisp linen is why it was super comfortable to sleep in. The interior design as I looked into detail is inspired by the area’s traditions, like history, culture, calligraphy, and music.
I had a dedicated working desk with a view over the car park. But to the left of me was a lovely church.
The interior design was colourful and I adored the plaster artwork above the bed. The long mirror is in the wrong place, due to its position I could not step back unless I stood on the bed. So I could not see fully from head to toe what I was wearing. This is very important in any hotel for a woman to be able to see what she is wearing.
There was plenty of mood lighting and a Nespresso coffee machine, wifi, a flat-screen TV, and some water in the minibar. The room came with plenty of charging stations for me to use. This is very important for those coming to work in Bath.
This spa-inspired bathroom offered a nice Feng Shue. A dedicated rain shower with plenty of fluffy towels. Transforming your bathroom with soft fluffy towels, and fresh citrus scent using large bottles of amenities made my stay relaxing. The decor of the tiles created a sense of place with unique experiences and encounters.
This roll-top bath is wonderful for kids and very short people. Some of the baths are smaller than others, to fit in the spaces, I had a smaller bath but they are not all like that. Make sure you check before booking if a larger bath is part of your stay. This plunge bath looked great and I liked the artwork on the floor-to-ceiling window that gave me privacy. This a great tip for transforming your bathroom window at home.
The Elder Restaurant
Part of the hotel which is independently owned is called The Elder. This is where breakfast is served and hotel guests can book a table for lunch or dinner.
The Elder presents a diverse range of locally inspired cuisines with an authentic touch.
The meals were fresh and in season. They were presented to a very high standard and the staff was very attentive.
Breakfast was fresh and it is a good start to the day with many fruit options for a healthy lifestyle.
An excellent English breakfast with plenty to get me going for the day. The cured ham was especially delicious and welcoming.
The full English breakfast was simple but tasty and good local homemade sausages ticked all the boxes regarding being in the United Kingdom.
Bath is a gorgeous city and worth exploring. This exclusive destination offers an array of experiences. Hotel Indigo Bath is in a great area to access the city whenever one needs to. The staff is very valuable here and works extremely hard to accommodate highly demanding guests. Whether you’re staying for business or leisure, make the most of all this chic urban retreat has to offer.
There is so much to explore in Bath and the atmosphere is lively and friendly.
