Best Western Fowey Valley recognises the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility and the need to consider the economic, social and development impact of our activities.

We are proud to announce that Green Tourism Business Scheme recently reassessed the hotel and upgraded us from a bronze award to SILVER!

The GTBS is the leading sustainable tourism certification scheme in the UK. Businesses opting to join are assessed by a qualified grading advisor against a rigorous set of criteria, covering a range of areas, like energy and water efficiency, waste management, biodiversity and more. Within the scheme each business is scored on up to 60 measures and the results then establish what award level they have achieved (Going Green, Bronze, Silver or Gold).
