Making every moment matter
We’re committed to leaving a positive impact for future generations and are proud to be a leading force for responsible and sustainable hospitality.
This is embedded within the very foundations of aparthotel Birmingham’s low carbon design – the first of its kind in the region.
In 2023, the Royal Angus Hotel was sensitively remodelled into aparthotel Birmingham, which is now one of the city’s most sustainable developments.
As a completely gasless site, we have eliminated our use of fossil fuels by using 100% renewable energy, generated entirely from solar and wind power.
Ground source heat pumps mean we can transfer heat from the ground into the building, and a heat recovery system recycles excess energy from the air conditioning system to hot water, in turn minimising our consumption.
This has resulted in an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of “10 A”, where “0 A” indicates net-zero carbon emissions, producing significantly lower emissions than the industry average ratings of “17 A” for new builds and “68 C” for existing buildings.
From refillable Rituals toiletries in your room, to bamboo pens on reception, we’re proud to be free from single-use products. Just as we endeavour to recycle all our waste, guests are encouraged to do so too, with separate bins for plastic, glass, paper and food provided in every room.
Guest rewards are offered for anyone opting out of housekeeping towels and linens, and we’ll wash these every five days for long-stay guests, unless requested otherwise.
Our city-centre location not only means the best of Birmingham is on your doorstep, but it’s easy to make the most of energy-efficient transport too. We’ll help our guests to find the best way around town, with local walking, cycling and public transport routes.
To keep our energy consumption down, our building management system gives us 24/7 control over aparthotel Birmingham’s usage, so we can effectively manage our heating output and electricity use to keep any waste to an absolute minimum.
