We at the Royal Lion Hotel know how important it is to reduce our impact on the environment. We are seeking to protect the environment by cost savings obtained from conserving energy, reducing water usage and minimising waste. We are aiming to improve our environmental performance through pollution prevention, staff awareness and continual improvement.
Our actions to lessen our impact on the environment:
Here at the Royal Lion Hotel we recognise that we have environmental responsibilities and are committed to working towards a sustainable future.
Our policy is to recycle as much of the hotel waste as the local facilities allow. Our staff also separate bottles, cans and papers collected from the rooms and with the guest’s co-operation, towels are only changed on request.
Leave the car – please leave your car in our car park and take advantage of the public transport or have a walk around one of the local walking routes.
