Visitors to Cardiff will soon be able to enjoy a new, unique hotel experience as Hotel Indigo gets set to open its doors within the heart of the Welsh capital this summer.

The boutique hotel, managed by RBH - the UK's leading independent hotel management company - expects to welcome its first guests in July, bringing 122 beautifully decorated bedrooms to the already burgeoning tourism industry in Cardiff.

Acclaimed chef Marco Pierre White will also open one of his famous Steakhouse Bar & Grill's on the roof of the development, further increasing Cardiff's claim to being one of the best food destinations outside of London.

Those staying at the hotel will be able to enjoy all of those at-home luxuries they're accustomed to, including free Wi-Fi throughout. Each of the guest rooms will be designed to highlight three recurring themes - made in Wales, industry and music - celebrating the heritage synonymous with the local area and beyond.

Located within close proximity of Cardiff's business district and with easy access to major attractions such as Cardiff Castle and the Millennium Stadium, both adventurous guests wishing to explore the city or those who prefer to relax in the boutique surroundings of the hotel will be well catered for. A small fitness centre will also be available for those wishing to keep fit during their stay.

Chief Business Development Officer for RBH, Andrew Robb, said: "Alongside a strong commitment from the Welsh government to increase and develop Cardiff's profile as an international business centre, the city has become one of the UK's top destinations for tourists and visitors in 2016, due to its excellent leisure and sporting attractions.

"The opening of Hotel Indigo Cardiff in the coming months will not only capitalise on this reputation, it will provide travellers with a luxury hotel experience, and cater for the needs of those seeking to experience the city's fantastic sights, shopping and nightlife.

"This is an exciting addition for RBH and the first Hotel Indigo to join our portfolio. We are delighted to be working with IHG on the project, which we hope will both strengthen links with the group and be the first property of many to join RBH."

Marco Pierre White added: "Cardiff is such a vibrant city and the location is perfect for my Steakhouse Bar & Grill. I'm really looking forward to getting the doors open and welcoming our first guests. It's going to be a big hit with both diners and drinkers who are out for a good time and wanting to enjoy food and drink in a stunning setting."

CEO, Nick Taplin added: "This is an exciting time for Black and White Hospitality with our 1st restaurant with RBH and our 4th rooftop bar and restaurant venue. We have been working on this scheme for 6 years and know the Cardiff market well and are very excited to be bringing our Steakhouse Bar and Grill to this magnificent City."
