GREEN TOURISM / ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

The hotel has recently received a Silver Award.

When we built the new extension we tried whenever possible to bear the environment in mind. An Audit was carried out by the Carbon Trust who advised us as to the best forward. They made recommendations which we have actioned.

We also made sure that we kept within our carbon footprint. This meant that there were certain things that we could not do. We had wanted 
air-conditioning in all our new rooms, but we could not do this because it would have taken us over an acceptable environmental level.

We are always open to advice when it comes to creating a healthy and sustainable environment within the hotel.
