Green Tourism Reviews

What our Members Say About Us…

boswell farm“I was enormously impressed with Stuart, our Assessor and the way in which he conducted the whole assessment. He was charming, extremely knowledgeable, supportive and informative.  All of his suggestions were practical and achievable. I only wish that he was available to undertake every inspection which I ever need to have!”

Devon Cliffs (1)“Joining Green Tourism was one of the best things we ever did. We have halved our waste to landfill by 50% saving us nearly £90,000 per year & we have also made large savings on our utility bills.”

“As a Green Tourism member you enjoy a host of benefits on top of the direct support & I would certainly encourage anyone who wants to Green up their Business to get involved, it really is worth it.”

roundhousebarn“Green Tourism is a structured approach to encourage everyone to look at their business in a completely different way that makes it more successful, more sustainable, & bizarrely more profitable.”

low wood bay hotel“It’s key for us as a ‘green’ business. If we don’t abide by the pledges we have made, we would lose business. It’s essential now, to attract clients from leisure to business, and even more so for attracting and retaining conferences visitors, whom many insist on ‘green’ certification.

“We would strongly recommend any business considering joining Green Tourism to do it, its positively exciting & very rewarding when you receive the recognition. Just remember it’s a journey not just an award. Joining Green Tourism gave us independent nationally recognised validation of our green credentials, helping us cut costs, but not quality & increase our marketing potential corporately & with everyday leisure customers.”

The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort1“More & more in the hospitality industry we are being asked by potential clients to provide not just our CSR policy but to show robust evidence that the policy is living & breathing.”

“The increase in the cost of utilities has been unprecedented in recent years forcing tighter than ever control on these resources. Being part of Green Tourism has become a management tool that has allowed us to focus on this.”

“Don’t think about it DO IT! Small steps by us to protect our fragile planet, with Green Tourism’s help, mean we have been awarded for our efforts. We hope our example will tempt others to follow in our footsteps.”

“Accreditation reassures customers we’re not just saying we’re green we actually have the proof of our commitment ! Bi-annual inspections help us focus on future improvements & there is help from a friendly face if we need it.”

jerseykayak“When I looked at customer responses I noticed our Green awards were giving us a competitive edge. Many customers reported that Eco awards were a positive factor which encouraged them to book.”

“The Eco credentials of a business are becoming more important. We’ve started to get asked – especially from UK organisations – about our Green, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) & supplier screening policies.”

“Working with Green Tourism inspired us to install rain water harvesting, renewal heat source & solar panels. Saving the business a large amount of money, but also greatly reducing our impact upon the environment.”

hazelwood farm B&B“The assessor informed me of some really great ideas (including inexpensive ones) to improve my green accreditation and also I felt she had thought of some suggestions which were tailor-made for my business, such as filling a rucksack with nature books and constellation charts for visiting children to try and capture their imagination whilst in the countryside here.”

gorge view“Green Tourism still provides the key UK quality mark for tourist businesses that want to be successful and still sustainable in every sense. The rating comes from a very detailed assessment which not only ensures thoroughness and consistency, but it informs on what can be made better still.”
