Green Hotels and Green Places to Stay

Welcome to Greentraveller's unique collection of hundreds of green and gorgeous places to stay in the UK and Europe. 

The recent flourishing of eco-consciousness has led to a huge rise in the number of green places to stay, from self-catering country cottages to luxury camps and plush city centre hotels. Standards of eco-friendliness vary enormously and to the casual eye it can be difficult to distinguish authentic places from those that are trying to cash in on the green wave. All of the places we feature have satisfied us that the owners are genuinely doing their bit to reduce their impact on the environment, see: How to tell if a hotel is green

The efforts of the owners of the places featured on greentraveller go much further than simply asking guests to put towels out for washing; many owners have invested in long-term energy saving technologies or developed their own ingenious methods for saving energy and water and dealing with waste in an environmentally friendly way.
