Hotel: Hamilton provides the finishing touch to Welsh heritage-celebrating hotel, Hotel Indigo® Cardiff
The Project: Hotel Indigo® Cardiff is a boutique hotel that has been designed by Matthews Mee Interior Design to evoke classic Welsh heritage. As with all Hotel Indigo® establishments, the surrounding area was carefully researched to discover the location’s intricacies, its history, special events, industry and people. The hotel is then designed around this to provide a unique and more meaningful experience that reflects the hotel’s location.
Hamilton products welcome each guest into their room as a Hartland CFX hotel key card switch has been installed next to a single Hartland rocker switch that controls the lighting in the entrance area. Hamilton also helps make European guests feel at home with the inclusion of a European SCHUKO and dual USB 2-gang switched sockets within a specially manufactured plate installed above a vanity table in each room.
In the 72 ‘Made in Wales’ rooms and the 31 ‘Welsh Industry’ rooms, the decorative accessories were specified in Hartland design and finished in Matt Black with Copper switches and Matt Black inserts. Meanwhile, the 19 ‘Music’ rooms feature Hartland products finished in Antique Brass with Antique Brass switches and Black inserts. All bathrooms are fitted with Hartland plates finished in Satin Steel with White inserts.
The Result: Hotel Indigo® Cardiff is due to start taking guest bookings in November with much anticipation building for the opening of this stunning hotel. Andrew Miles, senior project manager, Kier Construction Western and Wales, said: “Kier is pleased to be long-standing customers of Hamilton. We have always been impressed by the company’s quality solutions and customer service.
“Having seen the hotel’s design we were confident we could successfully collaborate and deliver a bespoke solution that could achieve the aspirations of Matthews Mee. The clean, timeless design of the Hartland collection was perfect for this project and we’re thrilled to have been involved with delivering such a unique high-quality establishment.”
Hotel Indigo® Cardiff’s General Manager, Tom Gaskell, added: “We take immense pride in our attention to detail and we’re pleased to have found an electrical partner that takes this as seriously as us. It’s these little touches that turns a nice hotel into an exceptional hotel and makes a guest’s stay all the more pleasurable. We’re pleased with the final finish and it’s been good to work with such a prestigious manufacturer.”
“With boutique hotels, quality and individuality are extremely important for business,” added Gavin Williams, Sales & Marketing Director at Hamilton. “We take immense pride in being a long-standing and recognised supplier to this industry that demands the best from its suppliers. The Hotel Indigo® Cardiff is a stunning building with breathtaking rooms and we’re proud to have played a part in ensuring that every guest has the best possible quality experience.”
