We will be:
- Offering a towel and linen change agreement which ensures you are helping the environment by reducing energy and water use.
- Giving you the opportunity to recycle your rubbish.
- Buying recycle toilet paper made in New Zealand.
- Buying products made in New Zealand.
Eco tips for guests
- Save energy by turning the heating down/off when you don't need it.
- Save energy by switching off the lights when leaving your room.
- Save energy by being careful not to overfill the kettle in your room - use only as much water as you need.
- Save energy, water and detergent by re-using towels instead of having them replaced - hang them up if you'd like to reuse them. Put old towels, which need a wash, on the floor. Your comfort is of great importance to us, so don't feel guilty if you need to change your old towels!
- We'll recycle the waste you leave at the motel wherever we can, but please try to produce as little waste as you can when you're here - buy food with as little packaging as possible, reuse bags, etc.
