The independent Queensberry Hotel, one of the most beautiful hotels in Bath, is run by husband and wife team Laurence & Helen Beere. With experience at Claridges, The Savoy, Cliveden, Palace Hotel Gstaad and Bath’s Royal Crescent, Laurence and Helen have a passion for detail and an inherent belief that every little thing matters. “I met a number of companies offering a similar service. My decision to use EcoPure Waters was primarily driven by the ethos and nature of their business. There was no ‘hard sell’ - it was clear that building long-term client relationships was important to them and they took a real interest in our business and how they could tailor their product and service to meet our needs,”
“Karen Cripps, EcoPure’s Business Development Manager, has been a pivotal part of our ongoing relationship and continues to deliver on every promise made – from helping us design fabulous looking bottles to dealing with the day-to-day care of our needs as a business,”
“The outcome has far outweighed our expectations. Financially, as a small independent hotel, a saving on this scale is very significant particularly in difficult trading conditions. I believe the provision of EcoPure’s water in the bedrooms has enhanced the guest experience we offer. The large, beautifully designed bottles are a great improvement over the small mineral water bottles we previously used.”
Set in the south Wiltshire countryside, The Stones Hotel is just minutes away from the world famous Stonehenge and the picturesque cathedral city of Salisbury. Following significant investment, the hotel’s 44 bedrooms, excellent conference facilities and new open plan terrace, bar and restaurant guarantee a comfortable and enjoyable visit for guests.
"With the EcoPure Waters’ filtration system we can produce our own great-tasting chilled and filtered water on demand. The water, still and sparking, is served in our own elegant bottles which are printed with the Hotel’s logo and a sustainability message. Now we’re serving our own water - which tastes as good as the water we previously bought-in - and we’re also promoting our own brand to our customers, which is a really neat solution.”
“The real story, however, lies in our cost savings. We’ve calculated the cost of producing our own water using the EcoPure system at around nine pence per bottle. This includes; the cost of the tamper-proof cap; staff costs for washing and filling the bottles; the energy used by the filtration system; and the cost of the water itself. We’re lucky to have our own water supply via a borehole, but even if we were using mains water it would add less than one pence per litre".
