We put you at the centre of Bristol life.
We love Bristol and hope you do too. As a Bristol based company we believe in keeping hospitality local and our suppliers, as much as possible, are based in the local area.
Charity of the Year - Our Fundraising Efforts
As the only organisation in Bristol and the surrounding counties specifically for women in street sex-work, their work is invaluable to the many lives they transform. They provide night outreach, drop-in centers, person-centered support and advocacy to around 240 women each year. Their vision is to live in a community where all women are valued and able to live fulfilled lives without the risk of being trapped in sex-work.
Each year, Quarter let their staff chose which charity to support through a voting system, where the only criteria are that the charity is based in Bristol. Between 2017-18 Quarter have been busy fundraising for Urban Pursuit, who work with young people who are struggling to stay in education. Through various fundraising activities including; pub quizzes, tryathalons, and even paddle boarding, Quarter managed to raise a grand total of £2.5k for Urban Pursuit, and hope to beat the amount this year!
Quarter are no strangers to the local scene, having been proudly Bristol-based since opening their first B&B almost 60 years ago. They have gone from strength to strength, with multiple hotels, restaurants, bars, property, and events popping up all over the city, and even more plans to expand in the near future. Their commitment to Bristol is to make the city the best it can be, for all involved.
Fundraising for One25 has so far included a super spooky Halloween pub quiz and in 2019 the plans include a quirky ‘Beyonce-athon’, a clothes swap, and a sponsored 125 (get it?) mile spin! Follow their progress or donate to the cause here: https://www.facebook.com/quartercharityevents/
Our commitment to being green!
In 2015 Bristol was Awarded European Green Capital of the Year. We’ve joined other Bristolian organisations and businesses and started making changes for a more sustainable future. We’re aware of its importance and want to make a difference for generations to come. We’ve worked alongside a number of award winning companies including GDS, Solarsense and Greenwoods Furniture that were all nominated for awards at last years Bristol Post Green Capital Awards.
We believe that it starts here. Our very own green committee lead the way in reducing our carbon footprint. We aim to bring awareness to both staff and guests by encouraging green practices and training staff in energy saving habits.
We have introduced a number of energy saving techniques into our business including our most recent installation of LED lighting. A complete LED changeover can reduce energy consumption by almost 90%. We have almost completed installing LED lights throughout all of our properties: significantly reducing our energy consumption in the process.
We closely monitor our energy consumption through the use of smart meters. Not only does this allow us to manage our energy usage better but it also reduces the carbon emissions that we would otherwise need for utility services.
Using water wisely
Solarsense have installed a solar thermal system for the luxury Berkeley Suites. The system consists of 60 Apricus evacuated tubes which heat water for all five suites. As well as reducing the hotels’ energy usage and bills, the system also generates a modest income from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which can be spent further improving the sustainability credentials of the hotel group.
Alongside saving on energy, we care about water usage too. Bearing this in mind we have begun to install cistern water saving devices which save between 1 and 3 litres of water every time you flush!
We encourage our guests and staff to recycle correctly with appropriate signage and facilities and use recycled paper wherever possible to further reduce waste.
As a group we are actively involved within the local community. We look to support local and independent commerce and there are a number of initiatives in which we are part of. These include Go Green & Tapwater.org
Happy & Healthy
Outside of the workplace we aim to keep staff happy and healthy playing sport in local leagues, entering team triathlons and running regular social events.
Throughout our properties we try to use only the finest, locally sourced products and ingredients. As an independent company we like to keep things local.
Travel & Transport
We have adopted our very own cycle to work scheme, encouraging all staff to travel to work sustainably. We advise guests to travel sustainably too, provide bike racks around the group and help keep our city clean!
Planning & Resilience
Our green commitments don’t stop here. In the future we aim to continue our work, looking for new ways to go green.
