Best Western to accommodate more electric cars
Best Western Great Britain has extended its parking facilities to accommodate more electric cars.
Some 30 of its 250 sites now offer electric charging points for customers to use free of charge and interest has picked up from members in installing further points as a result of the government’s pledge to outlaw diesel and petrol cars by 2040.
Hotels with electric charging points include the Best Western Plus Swan Hotel in Wells, Somerset, which offers a 10% discount for guests who book direct and arrive at the hotel by electric car or public transport.
Best Western Plus Mosborough Hall is said to be used frequently, while Best Western Aberavon Beach Hotel was the first hotel in South Wales to offer electric charging points to customers free of charge.
The company’s head office in York also has electric charging points.
Les Asplen, Best Western managing director, said: “As the largest group of independently owned and managed hotels in Great Britain we are very proud to be one of the first hotel groups to start rolling out this service to guests across the country.
“It might be the case that not many people know that there are 30 Best Western sites with electric charging points when they are concerned about when and where to recharge their car. Best Western hotels are happy to help them and we hope to be adding more sites soon.”
