Environmental Policy

BEST WESTERN PLUS Manor House Hotel is committed to working in a sustainable way. We aim to conduct our business in a responsible manner, reducing the overall impact that we have on the environment.

The Hotel has raised environmental awareness and understanding with all employees, customers, suppliers and the general public through the establishment of a ‘Green Team’ that comprises staff members from across the business to lead and implement new ideas and working practices. In November 2013 we were awarded the Staffordshire Environmental Quality Mark for our green practices and commitment to the local area. In September 2014 we achieved a Gold Award through the Green Tourism Business Scheme – an improvement on the Silver Award we received in 2011.

Help us to help to save the planet

BEST WESTERN PLUS Manor Hotel joined up with the Green Tourism Business Scheme in order to support a green business relationship. We applied for, and were awarded the Staffordshire Environmental Quality Mark in 2013. This proves that we:


  •  Conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of Staffordshire.
  • Minimise the local and global environmental impact of our activities, safeguarding and protecting natural resources.
  • Help customers understand, enjoy and conserve the special qualities of Staffordshire.
  • Play an active role in the economic and social wellbeing of local communities within Staffordshire and global communities.

We already have energy efficient light bulbs where ever possible in existing fittings throughout the hotel. We have introduced recycling for all glass, cardboard, paper, plastics, food waste, used cooking oil, light bulbs and batteries. As a business we are continually striving to reduce our carbon footprint. Should you have any suggestions on how we can improve upon our policies please talk to a member of staff. Our aim is to substantially reduce waste to landfill, reduce our energy consumption pro-rata by 25% by 2015 and so reduce our carbon footprint.

We would like your help to achieve our aims. Click this link to download a copy of our Responsible Visitor Charter and see how you can help whilst staying here at BEST WESTERN PLUS Manor House Hotel in Stoke on Trent.
