The Plume of Feathers visitor charter

We wanted to make you aware of our commitment to sustainability and would appreciate all of your help on this journey.

Things to know while you are here

If you have any old newspapers, plastics or glass, we will be more than happy to recycle them if you leave them next to the bin before you leave.

We no longer offer hotel bottle minis. To cut down on waste, you will find larger bottles of shampoo and shower gel in your bathroom to use while staying with us. We ask that you kindly leave the bottles for the next guest to use, to cut down on using extra plastic bottles to replace the ones that have been removed. If you do remove the toiletries from the room, the value will be charged to your bill.

Just ask someone behind the bar and they will be more than happy to help! Conserve energy and water – when you’re not in your room, just turn off your lights before you go and make sure no taps are running it all helps!
