farmhouse-4-starThe AA ‘Star’ rating system
(applies to Guest accommodation Bed and Breakfast at Colston Hall)

When you’re looking for a place to stay, you need a rating system you can trust. The Visit Britain’s ratings together with the AA and RAC schemes are your clear guide to what to expect. Properties are visited annually by trained, impartial assessors, so you can have confidence that your accommodation has been thoroughly checked and rated for quality before you make a booking.

Using a simple one to five rating, the new system puts greater emphasis on quality and is based on research which shows exactly what consumers are looking for when choosing accommodation.

Guest accommodation covers a wide variety of serviced accommodation for which England is renowned, including guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, inns and farmhouses. Establishments are rated from one to five Stars. The same minimum requirements for facilities and service applies to all Guest Accommodation from one to five Stars. Progressively higher levels of quality and customer care must be provided for each one of the one to five Stars ratings. The more Stars, the higher the overall quality in areas such as cleanliness, service and hospitality, bedrooms, bathrooms and food quality.

Colston Hall is proud to have achieved Four Stars status with a Breakfast Award.
