Most of the accommodation featured on this website has been quality assessed by either
VisitBritain or the AA or RAC.

All the national bodies (VisitBritain, VisitScotland, VisitWales and the AA) now assess hotels and guest
accommodation to the same criteria and award one to five stars. The ratings reflect the overall quality of the experience. By choosing to stay in quality-assessed accommodation, you can be confident that it has been
checked out before you check in.

However, some Accommodation Providers have opted out of the assessment scheme.
These properties are marked as G/A (guest
assessed). Please ask your host for more details about this,
and make sure you check out all the details you require, such as bathrooms, breakfasts,
televisions, tea and coffee, etc.

Hotels have to be licensed, offer dinner at least five nights a week (unless categorised
as a Metro Hotel) and have all rooms en suite or with private bathrooms.

Guest Accommodation tends to be personally run by the owners.
Certain additional facilities and services are provided at the higher star levels. In particular, look for accommodation that has a Silver or Gold Award, to indicate extremely good attention to detail.

Self Catering Accommodation is assessed on the layout and design of the accommodation
and the range and quality of the kitchen equipment, as well as the quality and comfort of the
bedrooms and bathrooms and most importantly, the cleanliness.
