Our eco commitment

At The Queens, we’re devoted to mitigating our environmental impact and finding ways to build on our sustainability efforts. 

From establishing our own, in-house green team to tracking the carbon footprint of our dishes, we’re taking steps to be accountable for our impact today – and to shape a responsible and forward-thinking business for tomorrow.  

Sustainability on site 

A little more action, please

Actions speak louder than words, which is why we’ve established a team of people on-site to drive our sustainability efforts. Here are just a few of the ways we’re moving towards a more sustainable place to stay in Leeds. 

  • Refillable toiletries in rooms
  • Phasing out gas throughout the hotel
  • Carbon footprints on all our menus
  • Eradicating single-use plastics
