A General Manager has been appointed to lead the team at the brand new Hotel Indigo Cardiff, which is due to open this summer.

Experienced hotelier Tom Gaskell will be tasked with overseeing the launch of the hotel, as well as ensuring its ongoing success.

He will look after the boutique hotel within the heart of the Welsh capital, which will feature 122 beautifully decorated bedrooms, as well as a rooftop Steakhouse Bar & Grill by acclaimed chef Marco Pierre White.

Tom, who has worked in the hospitality industry for almost 17 years, boasts an impressive CV having worked for a host of reputable hotels across the UK.

His most recent role saw him take charge of the Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel as General Manager.

Tom Gaskell, General Manager of Hotel Indigo Cardiff, said: "The new hotel is shaping up nicely and will be a vibrant new offering for the capital."

"Not only will it boost Cardiff's already burgeoning tourism industry, but the fantastic rooftop restaurant, by none other than Marco Pierre White, will strengthen the city's claim as one of the country's top food destinations outside of London.

"This is the start of an exciting and challenging journey. I can't wait to get started."

The hotel will be managed by the UK's leading independent hotel management company, RBH , which will take full responsibility for the venue's operations when it opens its doors. It is the first Hotel Indigo to join the RBH portfolio.

John Stuart, Chief Operating Officer at RBH, said: "Tom is an exceptionally experienced hotelier with a fantastic background working for some of the industry's most recognised brands, and I'm pleased to welcome him to the helm of what promises to be a fabulous new hotel."
