GREEN VISITOR

There are a number of ways in which you, as a guest, can reduce the impact of your stay on the environment.

Here are a few suggestions:

  • Reduce pollution – take a walk instead of a drive
  • Reuse your towels and linen
  • Turn the lights off when you leave the room
  • Save electricity – try not to leave electrical equipment plugged in while out of the room – phone chargers still use electricity even if there is no phone to charge!
  • Turn the TV off completely – being left on standby still uses electricity
  • Conserve water – have a shower instead of a bath
  • Make sure the taps are fully turned off and not dripping
  • While you are here please buy local produce to support the local communities
  • Respect the environment – please do not litter

 

If you have any suggestions on how we can improve our standing as a Green Hotel please do not hesitate to voice them to a member of staff – we are always looking for new ideas!
