Star rating & accreditation schemes

Gaining accreditation through an official assessment scheme shows that you are committed to quality, giving potential guests a label they can trust and providing clear expectations for customers when booking.

We manageĀ a number of accommodation quality schemes designed to help businesses reach their full potential. Our National Quality Assessment Scheme is the largest official star rating scheme in the UK, with over 24,000 participating businesses. We also work with self-catering agencies and destination organisations to raise standards.
