A leading hotel and health club has increased the number of electric car charge points so that an increasing number of guests and members can ‘fill up’ their vehicles during their visit.

The hotel and health club at DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House in North Somerset has now added a number of Instavolt charge stations and is one of the first venues in the South-West to provide this service to its guest, customers and health club members.

The installation of these new EV charge stations is in addition to a trio of Tesla charging ports that were installed a few years ago on the back of a rise in electric cars usage.

These new units are available for any electric vehicle driver to use on a pay-as-you-go, no subscription basis. There’s no connection charge and all drivers do is simply tap their contactless credit or debit card and only pay for the electricity used.

Costing around £20 to £26 for a full charge, drivers will be able to add around 200 miles of range.
