West London's room2 is the world's first net-zero hometel. The brainchild of eco-driven founder Robert Godwin, the accommodation is on track to be 89 per cent more energy efficient than the average UK hotel. Highlights include solar panels, ground-source heat pumps and a rooftop terrace that's home to wildflowers and 75,000 bees. But it doesn't stop there. Interiors are just as green, with reclaimed terracotta-coloured tiled floors and exposed concrete slabs for ceilings. Bedrooms, meanwhile, feature hand-crafted furnishings by local artisans: think floor-length mirrors and statement wallpapers. We love the huge walk-in showers, which, while being cleverly designed to use 40 per cent less water than your shower at home, are no less powerful for it.
