Green Toursim Week at Jurys Inn

Mon 06 Jun 2011

During Green Tourism Week, 6th – 12th June, a dedicated green area in the hotel lobby will provide visitors with information on the local area and green events happening in Milton Keynes including tips on how to be more environmentally conscious.

Guests of Jurys Inn Milton Keynes will be encouraged to use a special ‘library’ where they can leave old books or magazines and can pick-up something new. Green itineraries will be prepared by hotel employees for guests to follow whether in Milton Keynes for one night on business or for a long weekend with the family.

As a Gold winner of the GTBS (Green Tourism Business Scheme) Jurys Inn Milton Keynes is dedicated to reducing its carbon footprint. As part of one of its many green initiatives over the past two years the hotel has managed to reduce paper consumption by a staggering 60,000 sheets.

Jurys Inn Milton Keynes is working in partnership with the Milton Keynes business community to heighten Green Tourism Awareness and to create a Greener Milton Keynes.

Anthony Barrett, Interim General Manager of Jurys Inn Milton Keynes commented, “It’s important for us to feel part of the community we are in. The hotel group has a strong commitment to supporting green initiatives across the UK and Ireland so it’s great for us to build on those and create something local for the residents and visitors of Milton Keynes.”

The 279 bedroom Jurys Inn Milton Keynes is situated on Midsummer Boulevard just five minutes on foot from the central rail station and equally convenient for the central retail district. The hotel’s spacious and comfortable rooms are all en-suite and can accommodate three adults, two adults and two children, or just one person in complete comfort. Business guests at Jurys Inn Milton Keynes can enjoy 13 dedicated meeting rooms, top-of-the-range communication systems, Wi-fi available in the lobby and public areas as well as friendly, efficient staff available 24 hours a day.
