Special Awards

Hotels, Guest Accommodation and Self Catering that 'go that extra mile' to make your stay a special one, will be awarded a high star rating and may also achieve a Gold or Silver Award.

Gold and Silver Awards are given to establishments which not only achieve the overall quality required for their grading, but also reach the highest levels of quality in those specific areas which guests identify as being really important to them.

The areas identified included cleanliness, the quality of bedrooms and bathrooms (the furniture, fixtures and fittings), their comfort and ease of use, and the service and efficiency given throughout the guest's stay. Gold and Silver awards recognise those establishments with particular strengths in these areas.
