Leisureplex sign pioneering Renewable Energy Deal

28th January 14

Leisureplex Hotel Group has signed an important new renewable energy deal with SmartestEnergy, to supply renewable energy to several of the company’s UK hotels further enhancing their green credentials!

Some of the largest hotels in the estate including the Queens, Eastbourne , Queens, Blackpool and Croit Anna, Fort William will all be supplied with renewable energy. SmartestEnergy are a leading UK buyer of renewable energy from independent generators within the UK. This power is supplied to large businesses to minimise the impact that their operations have on the environment.

As of 1 December 2013 these leading Leisureplex hotels’ electricity have run entirely on renewable energy, making our competitors go green with envy.

The move is a demonstration of Alfa Travel’s commitment to do more than offer coach holidays in UK and Europe; but do so with as little harm to the environment as possible.

Karen Sawbridge, Operations Director at Leisureplex said: “We are proud to be working with SmartestEnergy to provide a number of our top hotels with renewable energy.”

This goes hand in hand with the green credentials of sister company Alfa Travel where coach travel is almost six times ‘greener’ than driving a car or going on holiday by air and twice as ‘clean’ as going by train - only walking and cycling produce lower carbon emissions.

Leisureplex Hotel Group owns and operates 20 UK Hotels. All the hotels are situated in stunning locations, from the award winning golden beaches of St. Ives to the magnificent mountain and loch scenery surrounding Fort William. Leisureplex offers a range of AA graded quality hotels where prime locations, premium quality and service with a smile come at a very affordable price.

Alfa Travel is the UK’s number one choice for coach tours and short breaks in the UK, Ireland and much of Europe. With an outstanding fleet of luxury, modern coaches and convenient local pick up points across the nation, a dream holiday is never far away.
