The quality assurance ratings are summarised in the boxes above. All our properties are assessed under the scheme and the grading for each property is shown in the property details within this brochure. Please note some properties may be awaiting inspection at the time of publication, but will be updated on our website as soon as the inspection has taken place.

We only offer properties that have achieved (or will achieve) a minimum of 3 stars (65%) under the scheme. Please use the star grading and overall percentage awarded to help you choose the right property for your stay. 

The percentages shown and number of stars awarded to a property reflect the OVERALL award by our inspector, whereas in the full and detailed report, provided to property owners, percentages are awarded for each ‘critical area’: public areas, bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens. The number of stars awarded cannot exceed the lowest rating given in any critical area, which ensures consistency in all aspects of a property. It also means that, in some instances, the overall percentage may slightly exceed the number of stars awarded.
