Environmental Policy

Caring For Our Environment:

The Alexandra Hotel Lyme Regis is aware that as a society we are all responsible for leaving a carbon footprint upon the environment both on a local, national and international scale. With this in mind the management and staff of the Alexandra are committed to ensuring we make every effort towards helping to build a sustainable future for generations to come.

Our Environmental Commitment:

At the Alexandra Hotel we endeavour to:

  • Continue to create and develop eco friendly policy as implemented by the Alexandra Green Team
  • We always encourage our suppliers to reduce their packaging and transport to our hotel
  • All our utility consumption levels are monitored on a monthly basis with the intention of reducing consumption at every given opportunity
  • We use ethically sourced Coffee from Rainforest Alliance approved producers
  • We endeavour to use as many local suppliers as possible

How you can play your part:

At the Alexandra we firmly believe that ‘we are all in this together’ when it comes to the protection of our environment.

Here are some ways in which as a guest you can help us in promoting good environmental practices:

  • Conserve energy, by switching off unnecessary lighting and close windows if the heating or air conditioning is on
  • Use water conservatively, please remember to turn off the water tap when brushing your teeth and adhere to our towel policy
  • Always try to support local producers and services, take full advantage of what Lyme Regis and Dorset has to offer
  • Give your car the day off, Lyme Regis has many attractions which are within walking distance of the Alexandra Hotel (please see our things to do without a car)
