Visit Wales

What does Visit Wales Grading mean for you?

A Visit Wales Grading means you can be confident that your holiday cottage has been checked out before you check in.

Is there any difference between Visit Wales and other grading schemes?

All the national assessing bodies (VisitBritain, VisitScotland,Visit Wales and the AA) now assess holiday accommodation to the same criteria and award one to five stars. The stars reflect the facilities and overall quality of the experience.

This grading scheme was introduced in 2008.

How do we assess properties?

The Quality Wales team of professional assessors normally visit each property on a biennial basis. Visit Wales is the premier assessing agency for accommodation in Wales, checking out over 5000 places every year.

What do the Visit Wales star ratings mean?

Visit Wales star ratings made easy:

  • Simple, practical, no frills
  • Well presented and well run
  • Good level of quality and comfort
  • Excellent standard throughout
  • Exceptional with a degree of luxury

Does a lower star rating equal less quality?

Many lower star rated accommodations may still offer high quality, but do not meet all of the facility and service expectations for the higher star ratings.

Always check with Home from Home before booking if the grade is particularly important to you – we will be pleased to help.

What categories of accommodation are there?

Accommodation differs in style. To help you make your choice, the new rating scheme includes a “designator” to describe the style of accommodation you can expect.

All of the properties in our portfolio fall into the following category:

Self Catering: cottages and apartments where you can experience home from home comforts.
