The Mill Hotel & Spa Chester goes the extra Mile… Again

Once again the Mill Hotel is leading the way and has installed the first car charging point in Chester.

As part of their Go Green plan the Directors of the Mill Hotel Gordon and Gary Vickers recognised there is a need for a car charging point in Chester. Gordon Vickers says “The number of Electric cars on UK Roads is increasing year on year and with manufacturers introducing more models every year numbers are set to continuing growing. With this fact in mind we noticed there are currently very few charging points in Cheshire and none at all in Chester City Centre. As part of our Go Green Plans we are recognising the need to support modern Technology to reduce both our and the UK’s Carbon Footprint”. The first car to utilise the new charging point was a new Mitsubishi i-MiEV from Gallaghers of Sandycroft.

The Hotels Go Green plan uses the rhino as a symbol to represent protecting the planet for the future. The Rapid Rhino Charger stations are located in the car park of the hotel, Free Parking and Free Charging is available to all hotel guests, whether they are staying for lunch, a meeting, a spa treatment or a short break, plug in your car when you arrive and sit back and enjoy your day or night at the Hotel.  “we like to say we are the Hotel that goes the extra mile but now we can say we help our customers go the extra 100 miles with their free car charge”
