Every effort is made to run Cobo Bay Hotel as environmentally friendly as possible by reducing and recycling waste wherever we can.
Energy-efficient and long-lasting LED light bulbs are used throughout the property, with motion and daylight sensors fitted in our corridors and health suite to reduce energy wastage.
All of our bathrooms are stocked with Gilchrist & Soames' BeeKind range of toiletries, which come in environmentally friendly packaging and donate a percentage of their sales to bee research. We have also replaced miniature ‘single serve’ toiletries with larger bottles to reduce wastage whilst our water purification system saves thousands of bottles from being thrown away each year.
The majority of our own waste, including cardboard, paper, plastics, glass and cans are sent for recycling, and our cooking oil is collected to be transformed into bio-diesel.
Cobo is a small village on Guernsey’s west coast in the parish of Castel, the largest of 10 parishes that make up the island. Families and friends flock down to Cobo beach on warm summer days to sunbathe, swim in the clear waters, play games, explore the rockpools at low tide, enjoy an ice cream from the local kiosk, light up a BBQ or sit on the sea wall with a lapful of fish & chips whilst watching the sun go down.
As well as strolls along the shore, guests can enjoy tranquil walks through the nearby nature trails up to Saumarez Park or through Le Guet, a small pine forest with a Napoleonic fort that provides an excellent vantage point from which to take in views of Cobo and beyond.
A regular and inexpensive public bus service connects Cobo to St. Peter Port and the rest of Guernsey, whilst a number of local amenities are available nearby, including a bar & restaurant, tea room, fish & chip shop, petrol station, mini-supermarket, bank, pharmacy and a Doctor’s surgery all within a few hundred metres of the hotel.
