About the voco Zeal Exeter Science Park Hotel

A new ground-breaking hotel at Exeter Science Park is set to open its doors to the public in January next year (2025).

The highly anticipated addition of the net-zero voco Zeal Hotel – which, through its solar panels, will produce more energy than it uses – marks a significant milestone for the park, enhancing amenities and further establishing the Science Park as a hub for innovation and collaboration.

The four star, 142-bedroom hotel will feature a meeting room, restaurant, bar, gym, gardens, and numerous EV charging points. It also reflects the Science Park’s commitment to net zero and to providing world-class facilities and services to our tenants, visitors, and the broader community.

Zeal has an exclusive agreement with IHG for the hotel, which will trade as the voco Zeal Exeter Science Park and will be IHG’s first net zero carbon hotel. The hotel will be managed by Valor Hospitality.

Working with the Exeter Science Park team

Tim Wheeldon, Managing Director of Zeal, said: “Working with Exeter Science Park (ESPL) has been and is a pleasure. Since it opened in 2015 ESPL has grown progressively with particular emphasis on ESG policies. We are adding a net zero carbon hotel facility resulting in ESPL becoming the most sustainable ‘go to’ science park in the UK. We are pleased to work with such a like-minded company which has similar ESG policies and goals.

“Choosing the location for the first net zero carbon Zeal Hotel was a challenge. Exeter boasts excellent road, rail and air transport links, a growing commercial base and exceptional further education facilities for students. ESPL’s team is committed towards a net zero carbon future, which is inspiring, and the existing innovative businesses based at ESPL mirror this long-term vision. We are excited to be involved with ESPL and are looking forward to opening our hotel in Jan 2025.”

Environmental Impact

The hotel has been constructed with half the embodied carbon of a standard hotel. It will generate 100 per cent of electricity consumed via the photo voltaic roof and wall panels, positioning it firmly in line with the 2050 Paris Agreement requirements and exceeding the 2050 Energy Use targets.

The building, which achieved the BREEAM Outstanding rating at the design stage, will be a fully sustainable operation, produce will be sourced locally or grown on site, and it will stimulate economic growth through job creation and investment and attract the environmentally conscious to the city.
