Marrable’s Hotel

An Eco Mindset

As eco-conscious hoteliers, we use energy-saving technology and eco-friendly materials wherever possible. This approach also includes water pumped from our Clerkenwell hotel’s own 1500-foot bore-hole beneath the building which helps make it self-sustaining.
Sustainability and environmental awareness were at the heart of the decision-making process when building Marrable’s Hotel. As a result, our hotels have been designed to be energy efficient, using sustainably sourced and environmentally sensitive building materials and controlled by an intelligent building management system.
Some of our eco friendly features and practices include:
  • Our own borehole beneath the building: we also use it to flush loos and cool both our fridges and your bedrooms.
  • An energy loop system: a bit technical, but basically it means we swap energy around – so as you heat your room, it helps us cool our fridges.
  • Natural light and passive ventilation: this is provided by Marrable’s central atrium and automated skylight.
  • Occupancy detection systems in the bedrooms: so that when you aren’t there, minimal energy is burned. And when a bedroom window is opened the air conditioning has been designed to cut out – just like that!
  • All the timber used in the building’s construction was bought from sustainable sources, and the paints used in our interiors are environmentally-friendly.
  • We recycle all glass and paper used by the hotel and its guests.
    Our bath and shower products have been chosen for its environmentally friendly packaging and the formulations, which contain no parabens, phthalates, petrol-derived ingredients, mineral oil, urea, DEA, TEA or propylene glycol.
  • Suppliers packaging: We now insist that our food deliveries take all their packaging away with them or use fully recyclable packaging. If a supplier is using too much packaging, push them to do better or take packaging away with them.
  • Supporting local: Wherever possible, we use or work with local or British brands. Our kitchens also focus heavily on British or better still, local produce.
  • Never stop: We keep asking ourselves, can we do better? We thought we were pretty plastic free but have recently re-audited and found there are a few products we use/buy that could be replaced with a better alternative.

Can we do better?

We are always open to new suggestions so if there is something that you think we should be doing please do let us know by emailing us.
