The Elms is committed to the principles of applying sustainable tourism.
Wherever possible, we will endeavour to minimise the impact of our business on the environment.
We try to conserve energy wherever we can and we have an ongoing process of improvements being carried out within the hotels that will help to preserve our planet's natural resources and reduce the amount of energy that is wasted.
In order to be more environmentally friendly, we are continually exploring ways in which we can increase the amount of recycling that we do, so that we can help to reduce the amount of waste going into landfill sites.
We’re committed to protecting your privacy. This policy details what personal information we collect and why we collect it, how we use your information and how you can access and update it.
