Hotel Indigo Exeter has opened its doors to guests after a multi-million-pound major restoration project, marking the expansion of IHG on the British market.
The building has been restored and converted from the iconic former House of Fraser department store which was built in a 1930s modernist style. The history of the building however dates to 1792 when Mrs Colson opened a department store there named “Colson’s”.
Comprising of 104 bedrooms, the rooms are designed around three themes reflecting the vibrance and style of Exeter's historic neighbourhood - The House That Moved, Colson's Department Store and Cathedral Heritage.
The hotel also features ‘Colson’s’ Bar and Restaurant, a rooftop bar called ‘Becketts’ with views across Exeter Cathedral, The Dugout Sports bar, and The Retreat Spa with four treatment rooms, two hydrotherapy pools, gym, sauna, steam room, nail bar and lounge serving Champagne.
Situated very close to the Cathedral, the hotel is perfectly located for visitors to discover all Exeter’s touristic sites. Established as a Roman base, Exeter has a wealth of architectural buildings and is steeped in history.
This is another exciting opening for the Hotel Indigo brand. The southwest of England has always been a draw for visitors due to the unique city neighbourhood and character of Exeter itself. Hotel Indigo Exeter will draw on all those hallmarks to ensure our guests experience the true local flavour of the area in each stay at the hotel. The Hotel Indigo brand has experienced a great 2022 with strong growth globally, with local openings such as this in Exeter a key driver for that growth.
