    In 2020, and as businesses reopen for bookings, the commitment to scrupulous hygiene has to be front and centre in the minds of hosts and guests alike. We know that the virus is passed by droplets, and the particles within are more resistant than many forms of bacteria to washing and cleaning.

  • The war on plastic: How hotels can help the recycling cause

    The hospitality industry produces a whopping 2.87 million tonnes of plastic each year and most of it may have been unnecessarily sent to landfill.
