The May edition of Boutique Hotelier is now live to view online and is a special sustainability issue, dedicated to highlighting the best green innovators in the hotel market.
The three boutique hotels taking the spotlight this edition are leading the way when it comes to being environmentally friendly. The Torridon in Scotland, run by Dan and Rohaise Rose-Bristow, is celebrating 25th years under the same ownership this year and is continuing to go from strength to strength.
With new training schemes implemented for staff, investments happening across the resort, plus a huge emphasis on sustainability as part of the business, which consists of a pub with rooms and activity centre on site along the hotel, we look into how the husband and wife team is making the destination a success.
The Grove of Narberth is another success story we discover in the May edition. Again run by husband and wife team Neil and Zoe Kedward, the pretty boutique in Pembrokeshire have developed a business that thrives in the corner of Wales. With a strong sustainability ethos at its core, the hotel was awarded a Green Tourism badge in 2016.
The third hotel is Llangoed Hall, part of Llangoed Limited, headed up by passionate hotelier Calum Milne. Keen to stress that ‘giving back to the land’ plays a major role in the direction of Llangoed Hall in Wales, being green is certainly not taken lightly within the business, especially as the group steps up expansion.
As well as this, we get the lowdown from Considerate Hoteliers and Green Tourism on what hotels can do to be commended for their green credentials and how to make sure systems and strategies aren’t just implemented as a marketing ploy.
We also take a look at how hospitality suppliers are playing their part in helping the industry as a whole to think more about sustainability and they products they choose.
