Hotel achieves highest accolade
12:00pm Friday 16th August 2013 in News
A COTSWOLD hotel is celebrating after winning the highest accolade in the Green Tourism Business Scheme.
Three Ways House Hotel in Mickleton, famous as the home of The Pudding Club, has recently won the gold after holding the silver since it joined the scheme in 2007.
Stuart Park, from Green Business UK, awarded gold partly “because of the significant investments the property has made in the last 12 months” including replacing oil-fired boilers for highly efficient hot water and heating boilers.
The hotel was also praised for its waste minimisation and recycling practices and, in particular, for its local sourcing policy.
Three Ways House has run its own Cotswold Walking Weekends since 1996 to encourage visitors to explore the countryside and to walk independently and cycle.
“The Pudding Club is very unique, very British and is an innovative way to promote British comfort food and the Cotswolds” said Mr Parks.
Jill Coombe, who owns the hotel with her husband Simon, said they were delighted to win.
“It’s quite a step up to get the gold,” she said. “We were absolutely thrilled to get it.
Assistant manager Bart Luckowiak has worked very hard towards getting the gold.
“There are only two hotels in Gloucestershire with the gold award and Three Ways House is very proud to be one of the two.”
