If you’re concerned about the environmental impact of your holiday, you have a couple of options: offset your flight’s carbon emissions, or perhaps take a holiday at home and stay in Britain.
If the environment is foremost in your mind and you are taking a holiday in Britain, how about staying in what is possibly the greenest hotel in Britain.
The Premier Inn Tamworth, Staffordshire – part of the UK’s largest budget hotel chain – is laying claim to the title of the greenest British hotel. This new environmentally-friendly hotel uses 80% less energy than a normal hotel due to its heating, cooling, lighting and ventilation systems.
Environmentally friendly technologies employed in the hotel are:
- Ground-source heat pumps
- Water recycling – reusing water from showers and baths for flushing the hotel’s toilets
- Sheep’s wool insulation
- Low energy LED lighting together with motion sensors
- Solar panels.
Rooms at the Premier Inn Tamworth cost from £53 per night.
