The Captain’s Club ‘crew’ have much to smile about. We have been awarded, on first inspection, the much acclaimed Gold Award by the Green Tourism Business Scheme.

Green Tourism business scheme

We proactively demonstrate our commitment through all facets of our hotel business…whether this be for our overnight guests by offering a gentle reminder to turn off lights when leaving their bedrooms or whether this be through ensuring that our dining guests can select from menus that include seasonal, local produce from sustainable sources.

When considering our corporate guests we actively encourage the use of ‘tap’ rather than ‘bottled’ water, supply in-house equipment to cut down on audio visual transportation and take advantage of our natural daylight and ventilation to promote general well-being for delegates.

Being a modern hotel, we have state of the art double glazing units, efficient water systems and lighting sensors which all help to conserve energy. We have robust recycling systems and hold regular ‘green’ meetings with our staff – actively encouraging them to submit ideas on how we, as a team, can provide a greater sustainable service.

We also support not only local charities, projects and schools but local suppliers and our surrounding wildlife too.
