ENVIRONMENT

From Crystalbrook Kingsley:

“Plenty of businesses claim to be paperless, but Crystalbrook Collection certainly walks its own talk.

Likely your first encounter with Crystalbrook’s environmental policy starts from the minute you check-in (paperless of course), as you’re handed a wooden key card access to your room. Unlike the plastic variety used across most hotel groups, when you stay in a Crystalbrook Collection property you’ll be supplied with a recycled wooden door token which resembles a wooden poker-chip. Made from 100% recycled wood, these key card access tokens are your first clue that your stay is starting in the means it intends to carry on.

In rooms, the paper compendium has been replaced with iPads and they’ve transformed the check-in and check-out process to be entirely paperless itself. That’s not to say there isn’t a little notepad to jot down your thoughts in your room – these are five-star properties – but instead of bleached–paper, you’ll find recycled Forest Stewardship Council paper stock only.

Crystalbrook Collection have partnered with TerraCycle, a charity which recycles coffee pods, separating them into their three constituents (organic, plastic and metal) where the metals are melted into weight, which is then monetised and donated to various charities across the region.

Food miles are one thing, but food waste is another, which is why Crystalbrook Collection designs its menus to reduce as much food waste as possible. Take the use of a pineapple for instance. You might find the juice of the pineapple served at breakfast, the leaves in a cocktail come sundown and your modern-Asian dinner dished up inside a pineapple skin bowl for dinner – that’s how committed they are to end–to–end cooking.

Where food waste does exist, it’s swiftly sent off with OzHarvest to be distributed to those in most need. If that’s left you hungry for more – you’ll be happy to know if you forgo your daily room service (reducing excess cleaning costs), you’ll even get a $10 voucher to use at one of the onsite restaurants.

Try as you might to go looking for them, you won’t find any single use plastics lurking around this hotel. Crystalbrook Collection were one of the first hotel groups to swap out straws, disposable bags, takeaway containers and plastic water bottles for plastic–free alternatives. Since launching the hotel group in November 2018, their transition to boxed water has saved more than 458,080 water bottles going straight into landfill.

In fact, even the coat hangers you find in each of the rooms are made from 100% pressed cardboard rather than the usual kind you find in hotel rooms.

The standard mini shampoo and conditioner bottles have been replaced with larger amenity packs pumping their signature scent, Crystalbrook Immersion. By replacing small, single use toiletries with large bottles, the hotel is able to keep a quarter of a million bottles out of landfill each year.”

The name Kingsley, is a tribute to Newcastle’s heritage and the city’s earlier name of Kingston, dating back to 1804.

Kingsley’s interiors make use of curves and rhythm to mimic the linear structure of the existing building, with a colour palette inspired by the Black Canary, a subtle homage to the region’s coal mining history. The interiors were designed by Suede Interior Design and are set to bring layers of texture in rich ivory and touches of yellow throughout the space from the existing neutral palette of the exterior.

Crystalbrook Kingsley features 130 sophisticated elegantly appointed rooms. Each room features its own tablet control centre, 55” Smart TV with STAYCAST by Google for video streaming and access to hundreds of complimentary movies, a Nespresso machine (naturally with recyclable pods) and fast and free Wi-Fi.

Guests can also take the pledge to minimise your environmental footprint when you’re on holiday and get $10 in dining and drinking credits. Here’s how it works…

Guests staying two nights or more at Crystalbrook Kingsley will receive $10 daily in dining and drink credits when committing to a ‘Footprint Free Stay’. To experience a Footprint Free Stay, you’ll:

Opt out of having your room serviced
Say no to single-use plastics
Turn off unnecessary electronics
Recycle all waste items that can be re-purposed in the separate bins in the room provided.

Experience Newcastle’s newest rooftop restaurant, Roundhouse, where you can take in the city’s stunning views, indulge in locally produced fare and sip your way through an extensive wine list inspired by the vineyards of the Hunter Valley.

Or, head to the rooftop bar, Romberg’s, for a slick, sophisticated and social affair, where you’ll find great music, artisanal cocktails, local beer and wines, and light bites celebrating the region’s fresh produce – all served with a plentiful side of cinematic views across Newcastle.

For a relaxed vibe, pay a visit to Ms Mary on the Ground floor, which transitions from an indulgent cafe during the day to cosy bar at night – where locals, theatregoers and guests socialise, work and wind down together.
