We as a team at The Samuel are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and are always looking for ways to increase our sustainability efforts. Our Environmental Impact Team meet once a month dedicating themselves to the further improvement of green initiatives throughout the hotel. Whether it be through energy conservation or recycling and waste management we are proud to do our part to preserve the environment.

  • We use LED bulbs throughout the hotel and we also have sensors throughout the building.
  • Leak detection systems and metering are used throughout to ensure wastage is minimised.
  • Appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines are low flow models to make further water savings.
  • All guest bathrooms are fitted with sensors and low flush technology.
  • The hotel has a proactive approach to recycling – all glass, cardboard, plastic bottles, aluminium cans, paper and food waste are all sorted and collected for recycling.
  • Removed single-use plastics in all guest bedrooms.
  • Replaced plastic water bottles in the rooms with either glass bottles, cartons or cans of water.
  • Replaced single-use shampoos/conditioners and soap with wall-mounted refillable, vegan-friendly options.
  • All our takeaway coffee cups and lids are 100% recyclable.
  • We have introduced “keep cups” to our Red Bean Roastery Coffee offering.
  • Recycled paper coasters and beer mats are used throughout the hotel as well as paper straws.
