Environmental Responsibility

Working towards a greener environment

Here at the Art Deco Masonic Hotel we are committed to working towards a greener environment.  As a locally owned business we care greatly about the environment we are a part of and take care to be a responsible member of the community. 

 Below are a number of initiatives and business practices we have in place to achieve this.
