Award-winning Stobo Castle combines the finest spa facilities in Europe with premier hotel service.


Stobo Castle’s large spa facility consumes a lot of energy and water, resulting in high utility costs for the hotel as well as time-consuming administration.

In 2008, the hotel placed a huge effort on minimising overhead costs, so they appointed BCC to carry out a full audit of all utilities (including telecoms) in order to identify areas for potential savings.


BCC’s team carried out a full audit of Stobo Castle’s utility bills in order to identify areas for savings. The team sought to obtain better tariff rates, identify opportunities for rebates on overcharges, gauge consumption levels, and spot irregularities.

The BCC team also aimed to reduce administration time by acting as the main point of contract for supplier liaison and contract management. They also supported Stobo Castle’s exploration of renewable options, to compliment their Green Tourism Award.



Our initial audit identified potential savings of just under £10k. This didn’t take into account the far greater savings available through our recommendations on ways to reduce energy consumption and improve energy efficiency.

We have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with the BCC team over the last 4 years. During this time they have proved to be very efficient and comprehensive in the service they provide. By having all of our energy and telecom invoices checked prior to processing allows us peace of mind that our financial accounts are accurate. By reviewing and negotiating contracts, we have saved on our fuel costs. I would have no hesitation in recommending this service to others.
