Hotel star ratings are devised to give you an easy, one-glance assessment of any type of accommodation. The ratings give a general indicator of the standard of service and features you can expect at a particular place. Please see the descriptions below for each star category.
A note of caution:
The star ratings only give a general indication about the accommodation. Not every room in a hotel will have all the features or services implied in its rating. The ratings shown on our pages are supplied by the individual hotels; we have no way of determining their authenticity.
Please indicate any special requests you may have in the ‘comments’ field in our room booking form.*
