Hotel Indigo Officially Opens with a Visit from the Lord Mayor of Cardiff


Cardiff’s latest hotel and restaurant offering marked its official opening with a visit from the Lord Mayor of Cardiff.

Councillor Bob Derbyshire helped mark the opening of Hotel Indigo® Cardiff, managed by Redefine|BDL Hotels (RBH), the UK’s leading independent hotel management company, on Monday 11th December with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The Mayor received a tour of the newly built hotel before cutting the ribbon alongside the hotel’s general manager, Tom Gaskell, and other members of the hotel team.

Hotel Indigo® Cardiff’s General Manager, Tom Gaskell, said:

“I would like to thank the Lord Mayor of Cardiff for taking the time to visit the hotel and help us mark its official opening. We were really proud to show him around so he could see what Hotel Indigo® Cardiff will bring to the city, and we welcome him back anytime for a visit.

“Hotel Indigo® Cardiff provides travellers with a boutique hotel experience, and caters for the needs of those seeking to experience the city’s fantastic sights, shopping and nightlife – having Marco Pierre White’s prestigious Steakhouse Bar & Grill within the property will create a real buzz within the heart of the capital.”

The 122 bedroom hotel boasts beautifully decorated guest rooms which were designed to highlight three recurring themes – made in Wales, Welsh industries and music – underlining the heritage synonymous with the local area and beyond.

The hotel is also home to Marco Pierre White’s famous Steakhouse Bar & Grill restaurant, which is the only one in the country.

It is located close to Cardiff’s business district and with easy access to major attractions such as Cardiff Castle and the Principality Stadium, both adventurous guests wishing to explore the city or those who prefer to relax in the boutique surroundings of the hotel are well-catered for.

Hotel Indigo® is part of the IHG brand family.
