Hotels must have a minimum of six rooms, a licence, offer dinner at least five nights a week and have all rooms ensuite or with private bathrooms. They must also operate a high staff to guest ratio thereby making service very attentive. The hotel categories in this area are Hotel and Budget Hotel.
This includes Guest Accommodation, Bed & Breakfasts, Guest Houses, Inns. These establishments tend to be personally run by the owners.
For self-catering accommodation, the layout and design of the accommodation and the range and quality of the kitchen equipment is assessed, as well as the quality and comfort of the bedrooms and bathrooms, and most importantly, the cleanliness.
The same as self-catering with the added benefit of maid-service.
