We believe everyone has a part to play in minimising the damage to our beautiful planet. Being situated in such a stunning part of the world, we want to do our bit to preserve it's natural beauty for future generations and we'd love for you to help us achieve our goals.

You can also assist us in minimising damage to the environment

  • Many guests place only towels for washing in the shower tray &/or bath, hanging up towels they can use again if their stay for us is longer than one night.
  • Many guests also turn off the TV, lights or water taps when they are not in use or they are not in their room If our guests keep the bathroom door closed, they can help retain the bedroom temperature and minimise energy use to regulate the temperature
  • If you want us to recycle more, you can help by separating your glass, plastic, paper & aluminum items when leaving the bedroom – if you want to go that little bit further, please place them in the wooden box in reception
