Alexandra Hotel Wins Gold Award in Green TourismMonday, March 4th, 2013
We received some fantastic news from Green Business UK Ltd today confirming that we have gained our GOLD Award in green tourism.
We have always been conscious of the position that the Alexandra Hotel holds – sat overlooking one of the most stunning natural coastal views in Britain. And we are reminded of the fragility of this special place every time we look out of the window and across Lyme Bay. Winning the award is great recognition for all the hard work the staff put in on a daily basis to ensure we keep our impact as low as possible, whilst not compromising the standards our guests expect.
The Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) has over 150 individual measures in the criteria, which focus on 10 different areas. Each business is scored on up to 60 measures and the results establish what award level they have achieved, i.e. Going Green, Bronze, Silver, or Gold.
Alexandra Hotel owner, Kathryn Haskins commented:-
“We are always looking for new ways to improve and look after the environment around us. The hotel has taken many steps to reduce the amount of waste produced and this has reduced the cost of recycling. Winning the Gold Award for Green Business Tourism shows how committed we are to responsible tourism practices.”
