New Accommodation Rating System for UK Hotels
and Bed and Breakfast's for 2007
What is the difference between a four-star hotel and a four-diamond hotel? After years of baffling travellers with various symbols and criteria, official UK accommodation ratings are getting simpler. This year, newly released guidebooks will be switching over to a standardised grading system for all hotels in Scotland, England and Wales.
The new ratings are based on a one to five-star system (top) and will see all grading bodies following the same criteria for the first time. Visit Britain, Visit Scotland, Visit Wales and the Automobile Association (AA) are joint partners in the project and have spent 2006 applying the new rules to their inspections.
“The majority of ratings have been converted now and guidebooks will be using them from now on,” says Alison Barham, quality manager at Visit Britain. “Travellers standards do not change when you cross a border and we need to reflect that.”
From now on, all four bodies will follow criteria called the National Quality Assurance Standards and they aim to have all accommodation standardised by 2008. Although the scheme is voluntary, Visit Britain says they cannot promote accommodation that has opted out.
Please Note:- On this web site, where appropriate, we shall be gradually changing the Diamond symbol to Stars as and when Bed and Breakfast proprietors inform us of their 2007 inspection. Also, The Royal Automobile Club (RAC) are no longer a participating Accommodation Inspection Authority and therefore the RAC logo and details will be gradually removed from this web site.Please also note that whilst most of the Accommodation Providers advertising with RoyalForestofDean.Info are officially accredited to one of the Authorised bodies there are some who prefer to remain independent and still offer the highest standards obtainable.
