A multi-award winning, eco guest house in Snowdonia has cornered the market for charging Tesla vehicles in North Wales.
Bryn Elltyd Eco Guest House at Tanygrisiau, near Blaenau Ffestiniog has teamed up with Tesla Motors to provide Tesla destination charging.
Tesla wall connectors add 58 miles of range per hour to the company’s Model S, charging the vehicle overnight and replicating the convenience owners are accustomed to at home. Bryn Elltyd Eco Guest House joins a rapidly growing network of resorts in Tesla’s destination charging program.
The company partners with hotels, resorts and restaurants around the world to offer Tesla wall connectors as an amenity for visitors, allowing them to charge their Tesla Model S at locations where they want to stay for several hours.
Model S offers 270 miles of range on a single charge so the high power wall connector can easily top off the Tesla in just a few hours. Bryn Elltyd Eco Guest House is constantly finding new ways to heighten the guests’ experience.
“By combining leading-edge technology and the forward-thinking of Tesla with our commitment to provide outstanding service and offerings, we now have the ability to offer guests a seamless and convenient charging experience during their stay,” said John and Ceilia Whitehead, owners of Bryn Elltyd Eco Guest House.
The Whiteheads installed three electric charging points four years ago but are only now starting to see a surge of interest as more people invest in electric or hybrid cars.
“Not many places can claim to have three electric car charge points powered by homemade or UK renewable electricity and have two commercial hydro plants and a steam train station within 200 metres,” said John. “We currently give away free green electricity car fuel to all guests.”
