One of Northern Ireland’s leading hotels is the latest business to reduce its carbon footprint by making the switch to natural gas as part of a major £60million extension project by Phoenix Natural Gas to extend access to its network to 13 towns across County Down.
The Slieve Donard Resort and Spa in Newcastle, which is owned and operated by Hastings Hotels, made the move following a £1.1m investment in the hotel which also included a brand new kitchen, a redesign of the drawing room as well as the upgrading of 16 of the hotel’s guest bedrooms.
The popular hotel, which is set against the stunning backdrop of the Mourne Mountains, is making the investment to facilitate its growing business and ensure it continues to offer the very best experience for all its guests.
Michael Weston, General Manager at the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa explains: “We are committed to conducting our business in a way that ensures environmental sustainability for future generations. This made making the move to natural gas, which produces less carbon than any other fossil fuel, a priority for us as soon as it became available in the area.
