Hotel Indigo Newcastle redesign

Newcastle city centre hotel set to reopen following multi-million-pound renovation

KE Hotels, a growing independent hotel owner and operator, has announced plans for the transformation of Hotel Indigo Newcastle this Spring.

Since taking over the property in March 2023, KE Hotels has embarked on an extensive £2m refurbishment project planned to upgrade their guest's experience and redefine the hotel's position within the industry and city centre.

The ongoing renovations include hotel rooms, reception, lobby, and connecting restaurant. The rooms, undergoing a modern and inviting redesign, will look to create a more homely atmosphere with well-equipped interiors. 

KE Hotels has also expressed its dedication to building strong connections with the local community, creating Hotel Indigo Newcastle as a “welcoming hub” for both locals and visitors. 

Engaging and collaborating with neighbouring businesses and residents, KE Hotels is also dedicated to getting involved with local initiatives and charities that create a positive impact on the development of the city centre and surrounding communities.

Josh Watts, Operation and Commercial Director of KE Hotels, shared his enthusiasm about the transformation: “We’re delighted for Hotel Indigo Newcastle to join KE Hotel’s growing portfolio and commitment to excellence within the hotel and hospitality industry. 

“Our vision is to create a Boutique Hotel where our guests can enjoy a relaxing and modern space suitable for every occasion. We wanted to create an environment that highlights and compliments Newcastle’s rich history and unique charm, as well as involving the brand to play an active part in helping develop the city centre and supporting communities.

The restaurant adjoined to Hotel Indigo Newcastle is also undergoing a complete renovation and new ownership, opening as 'Social Bird', an independent chicken-inspired restaurant. 

The restaurant aims to cater to hotel guests, passing trade, and locals, providing breakfast, lunch, evening and everything-in-between menus, offering a diverse range of food, beverages and dining options.

The 148-room hotel has been a well-known part of Newcastle's hospitality scene since it transformed from a four-story office building in June 2012. Hotel Indigo Newcastle’s renovation will be complete in Spring 2024.
