Our Social Responsibilities


As part of our new concept hotel, Forest Park has placed one of its priorities on Social Responsibility. With a complete refurbishment, we have ensured the hotel operates as efficiently as possible and with fair working policies.

It is completely lit by LED lighting, in some areas by sensor to avoid wastage, and has also removed gas from the entire Kitchen. We also source our energy from 100% renewable sources such as wind power through our broker U4L. We also offer an electric car charging point for guests.

We have removed all plastics from the Bar favouring wood and paper, as well as removing packed products from our breakfast buffet Ecolab are our preferred partner for chemicals and are one of the highest-rated eco companies in the UK. We recycle glass, food and have a cardboard compacter for recycling pick up.

We pay above minimum wage and have a complete non-discrimination policy along with team benefits for our employees.

We will continue our journey to become ever more socially responsible in the future.
