The hospitality management group was selected as the site’s operating partner following its recent success in opening and operating their own three leading UK Hotel Indigo hotels: Hotel Indigo Bath, Hotel Indigo Chester, and Hotel Indigo Stratford upon Avon.
Hotel Exe Limited is developing the 104-bedroom Hotel Indigo within the “iconic” former House of Fraser department store.
The hotel is set to open in summer 2022 with a destination ground floor restaurant and bar, a basement level sports bar and a rooftop bar and lounge which, with views across Exeter Cathedral. In addition, it will include an urban spa with five treatment rooms.
Simon Hall, Castlebridge Hospitality’s operations director, said: “We are excited to be working with the team at Hotel Exe Limited to create what will be the city’s principal hotel. We love to deliver locally inspired and innovative restaurant and bar concepts and this hotel is a prime example of how Hotel Indigo draws on the local neighbourhood to inspire every aspect of the hotel, from intriguing design to locally inspired menus.
“Having recently developed and opened three of our own Hotel Indigo hotels, and with a further two in development, it’s great to strengthen our position as the leading manager of Hotel Indigo hotels in the UK and we look forward to welcoming guests in Exeter next year.”
