We're really pleased to have achieved a silver award with Green Tourism. We work hard to make sure we can do all we can for the local enviroment and community.
Here's what they said about us
South Sands Hotel makes an impressive start securing the SILVER level of award. There are already many very green measures in place at the boutique beach front hotel. Food and drink is particularly good where many Devon items - meats, locally landed fish, fruit and vegetables as well as beer and juices make up the menu, giving guests a real taste of the region. This is complemented with local art on display as well as eco friendly soaps and several ethical items. As a new hotel there have been efforts made to reduce energy impacts by having high levels of insulation, very efficient boilers and appliances as well as heat recovery from the kitchens. The hotel design has incorporated local features e.g. wood for the bar while also having a 'crumple zone' to help against the storms. The hotel plays an important part in the community, as an employer but also raising funds and supporting many local organisations e.g. South West Coast Paths.
