Sustainability and Environmental Commitment / Policy

Rectory Hotels Ltd is committed to minimising the impact of our business operations on the environment without compromising the experience of our guests. Sustainability is a key consideration in our operational and purchasing decisions and we have a set of principles in place in support of environmental improvement and sustainable development.

Our ‘Sustainability Commitment’ is based on everyday working practices and is shared by all our team.

Our key principles are:

  • Buying sustainably produced products, with minimum and/or recycled packing, provided they meet our quality standards
  • Supporting our local economy by purchasing products grown or made in Norfolk / East Anglia through locally based suppliers
  • Minimising waste through ‘Reduce, Re-use, Recycle’
  • Efficient and economic use of energy through the installation of low energy products / equipment, timers, thermostatic controls and a ‘switch off when not in use’ policy
  • Use of environmentally friendly and natural cleaning products
  • Promoting the use of public transport to both guests and staff by providing relevant and up-to-date information.
  • Provision of information to encourage and enable guests to support our local economy
  • Supporting fund raising initiatives for local organisations

 

This Commitment is integral to our daily procedures and we look to continually enhance and increase the sustainability element of our operations.

    Autumn Short Breaks

    The weather may be cooling down and the nights drawing in but our welcome is as warm as always. Norwich is a year round city with lots to see and do even on the greyest of days; for shopaholics, it is listed among the country's 'Top 10' shopping destinations, and for nature lovers there are seasonal migrants arriving almost daily at Norfolk's many nature reserves.

    At the end of the day, come home to the relaxing atmosphere of Norwich's only AA 'Red Star' & 2 Rosette hotel. Your break includes a pot of freshly brewed tea or coffee on arrival, 3 course 2AA Rosette dinner each evening, accommodation in one of our stylish guest rooms plus a delicious freshly cooked English Breakfast. (Mon - Sat inclusive, min. two night stay, based on two people sharing). Book online or if you prefer to speak to us in person, just call us on 01603 700772.

    We look forward to welcoming you
