All of The Good Life Cottage Company Cottages are graded by Visit Britain Quality assessment scheme. This means an official Quality Assessor has visited the accommodation each year, and given it an independent and trustworthy assessment. Inspected properties receive a ‘star’ grading alongside each property description between 1 – 5 stars. The number of stars gives you an indication of accommodation standard, cleanliness, ambience, hospitality, service and food. Generally, the more stars the higher the level of quality.
What do the different ratings mean?
1 Star - Properties offer a basic level of accommodation with minimum acceptable quality.
2 Stars - Indicates a good overall level of quality – practical and functional furnishings and décor with a reasonable degree of comfort.
3 Stars - Good to very good overall level of quality throughout with a good degree of comfort and attention to detail and co-ordination.
4 Stars - Excellent overall quality throughout. Very good attention to detail and co-ordination. Automatic washing machine and dryer on site in addition to other equipment as listed.
5 Stars - Exceptional quality in all respects. High level of décor, fixtures and fittings. Excellent range of accessories and personal touches and full complement of major equipment including video and freezer.
