Luxury and sustainability are words rarely used in the same sentence with regards to guest accommodation but a development in Leeds has created the perfect blend, with the launch of the UK’s greenest Apart-Hotel.
Entering the hospitality industry from an angle of reducing tourism’s carbon footprint whilst providing an individual and inspiring space for a staycation, the eco-chic Apart-Hotel is the latest addition to Greenhouse – a mixed used development in Beeston, Leeds, already described as the UK’s most pioneering low-carbon homes and offices.
Offering a series of luxury 1, 2 and 3 bed boutique-style apartments that can be rented for weekend breaks, weekly trips or monthly stays, Greenhouse Apart-Hotel offers a totally new UK leisure experience.
The Apart-Hotel offers sustainable qualities and luxuries, including innovative energy saving appliances alongside contemporary high-end sustainable furnishings.
On arrival guests are welcomed with a hamper bursting with local and organic produce, including fruit and vegetables grown within Greenhouse’s own allotments. Guests are also offered a tour of the facilities en route to their apartment, where they can get the lowdown on how recycled rain-harvested water flushes the loos, solar panels power the showers and how the rooftop wind turbines power the lifts.
Greenhouse has developed a strong sense of community amongst the permanent residents and office tenants and in testament to that, the Apart-Hotel is run by husband and wife team, Greenhouse residents Tom and Kati Lancaster, who are committed to providing the highest levels of customer service to ensure all guests experience a sustainable home from home.
During their stay, guests can see for themselves how they are contributing towards a more sustainable way of living via Internet Protocol TVs in each apartment tracking their energy usage. 100% British wool carpets and water efficient rainhead showers are just some of the facilities that provide luxury within Greenhouse’s sustainable ethos.
Managers Tom and Kati state that they are on hand as much or as little’ as guests need them, Providing guests with their mobile number offering 24/7 support, they are committed to the highest levels of customer service.
