Environmentally Friendly
Here at The Ambassador Townhouse, we strongly believe we can help sustain our local environment by how we go about our everyday activities. We know a combination of small actions is as equally powerful as one large one when it comes to ecology and running an eco-friendly accommodation business.
We are proud to have adopted a number of regular habits hat support our green ambitions:
• Where possible light fittings & lamps are fitted with low energy bulbs
• Entry and Hallway lights on movement sensor switch
• We change towels only at guests’ request
• We use refillable complimentary toiletries rather than takeaway miniatures
• All toilets have dual flush facility
• En-suite showers rather than baths save water consumption
• Room kettles are quick-boil with 0.7 litre capacity to reduce energy waste
• We use linen napkins in our dining room
• We wash on lowest possible temperatures
• We recycle food waste for compost
• Recycling waste bin contents where possible - glass, plastic, papers & tin
• We employ local staff who use local transport or walk to work
• We source our goods, services & kitchen ingredients locally
• We encourage full use of public transport and local cycle hire
• We offer hot drinks from sustainable and fairly-traded source
• Rainwater is diverted directly to water outside planted areas
• We have installed a new energy-efficient hot water and heating boiler
• Our roof has been insulated with a thermal foam spray and loft space lagged

In addition, we encourage our guests to participate and help achieve our aims by:
• Switching off unwanted lights and electrical equipment when not in use
• Not leaving the television on standby - even that uses lots of electricity
• Requesting towel changes only when necessary
• Setting room temperature thermostat to a comfortable level
• Turning off taps while cleaning teeth
• Separating in-room waste using our in-room recycling bags
• Leaving cars parked and travelling ‘green’
• Supporting local resort businesses
• Letting us know if there is anything more we can do
We know there is always more that can be done and endeavour to consider the environment whenever a purchasing decision must be made. Please join us and see how we’re doing so far.
