InterContinental Hotels Group has signed its first hotel in Gibraltar, under a franchise agreement with property developers, Roquebrook.
Located close to the Old Town and just a five-minute drive from Gibraltar International Airport, the Hotel Indigo Gibraltar will offer rooms facing north towards Spain and eastward-looking rooms with views over the historic Northern Defences.
Converted from an existing office block, the building will be entirely reconfigured with a new facade and rooftop extension to form the 120-room Hotel Indigo Gibraltar.
In addition to a onsite gym, the hotel will also have a restaurant and bar designed to attract locals as well as guests.
