Our establishments have been independently inspected and awarded corresponding ratings reflecting quality, service and facilities.
VisitBritain (Quality in Tourism) and the AA , have created one overall rating scheme for serviced accommodation using Stars to represent hotels and Diamonds to represent Guest Accommodation.
VisitBritain operate a star rating scheme to represent self catering accommodation.
The Star classification is a quality scheme of five levels. The assessment rises from one star, denoting hotels with the simplest range of facilities, to five stars denoting luxury hotels with a range of services and facilities that meet the best international standards.
Guest Accommodation covers a wide variety of serviced accommodation, including guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, inns and farmhouses and these establishments are rated in a similar way to the star scheme but quality is represented using Diamonds.
VisitBritain also present Gold and Silver Awards to establishments that achieve the highest levels of quality in areas such as cleanliness, service and hospitality within their rating.
Similarly the AA recognise exceptional quality of accommodation and hospitality by awarding Red Stars to the best hotels in their star category.

The Cotswolds Tourism Local Assessment Scheme
Alternatively we have the Cotswolds Tourism Local Assessment Scheme. The Cotswolds Tourism Local Assessment Scheme is a stepping stone towards the National Quality Assurance Standards. It is delivered in partnership with VisitEngland and, while accommodation providers meeting the standard will not yet be participating in the national scheme, they will be demonstrating their commitment to quality improvements. A local assessor will inspect properties against a standard, indicating they are clean, comfortable and fit for purpose.
