Visit Wales Star Grading Scheme

Extract's from Visit Wales (formerly the Wales Tourist Board) publications:

Visit Wales operates a policy whereby it only lists accommodation which has been fully inspected and graded for quality. The inspections or quality assessments are undertaken on an annual basis, so you can book with confidence, knowing that featured accommodation has been checked out by Visit Wales' own quality assessors. All places featured - from the smallest farm house to the largest hotel or self catering complex have been assessed for quality and given a star rating.

Using a scale of 1-5 stars, Visit Wales grading provides the reassurance you need about what to expect before you arrive.

As a guide:

  • 5 stars - exceptional quality
  • 4 stars - excellent quality
  • 3 stars - very good quality
  • 2  stars - good quality
  • 1 star - fair to good quality
