InterContinental Hotels Group has announced the opening of Hotel Indigo – Stratford upon Avon, marking the brand’s debut in the heart of the historic market town.
Hotel Indigo – Stratford upon Avon is home to 93 stylish guest rooms with designs inspired by the history of the local neighbourhood, with each guest room paying homage to the town’s heritage by using classic English materials such as wool and raw wood.
The hotel guest rooms boast three strikingly beautiful room designs, which are inspired by the Bard and reflect Stratford’s history, which stretches back to medieval times:
· The Tudor Rooms display the tradition of the 16th century building and offer a path to the past, with views of Shakespeare’s New Place, his residential home in later life.
· The Georgian Townhouse is inspired by Shakespeare’s Theatre, the rooms combine a touch of luxury with homely charm.
· The Contemporary Rooms in the new wing offer a sophisticated and elegant design drawing from its more recent 20th century past.
All guest rooms are fitted with Nespresso coffee machines, a 40-inch flat screen TV and IHG Connect, IHG’s seamless internet experience for guests – making it the perfect choice for weekend getaways. With Hypnos beds installed in each room, guests are promised a luxurious and comfortable night’s sleep.
Meanwhile, the hotel’s exterior offers a blend of tradition and modernity.
The beautiful Grade 1 Listed façade dates back to the 16th Century and was originally a public house. More recently, the building has been extended to include a new contemporary wing from the 1960s.
Throughout the property, guests will find a carefully curated selection of contemporary artwork, murals and 3D artefacts inspired by Shakespeare.
The hotel’s restaurant and bar, The Woodsman, headed by Executive Chef Mike Robinson, co-owner of the Michelin-starred Harwood Arms in Fulham, delivers an exceptional dining experience with a focus on sustainability, seasonality and locally-sourced produce. A large wood-fired oven and charcoal grill will form the focal point of the restaurant, where guests can watch chefs as they prepare the food.
The restaurant also has a Feasting Room that serves as a breakfast room by day, and by night transforms into a private dining room. The theatrical and tapestried space is also available for hire, complete with a long central table for up to 30 guests.
