This is not only in relation to comfort and hospitality but also being a responsible accommodation, such as Time + Tide. Time + Tide not only has a fantastic foundation, but they also work hard to train and employ staff from within the local communities.
Most of their food produce is also either grown locally or sourced from local suppliers and farmers, this not only reduces food miles but also increases the economic impact within the local communities.
