Scotland’s Star Quality!

- A simple, impartial, consistent approach to quality

VisitScotland, under the Scottish Tourist Board brand, runs the star grading schemes which assess the quality standards of all types of accommodation and visitor attractions from castles and historic houses to garden centres and arts venues. We quality assure over 70 percent of the accommodation in Scotland and 90 percent of the visitor attractions – so wherever you want to stay or visit, we’ve got it covered. Each establishment is reviewed once a year. We do the hard work so you can relax and enjoy your holiday. How does the system work?

Graded visitor attractions

A consistent standard wherever you stay

Visitor attractions from tourist shops and museums to leisure centres and tours are graded with 1 - 5 stars depending on their level of customer care. The focus is on the standard of hospitality and service as well as presentation, quality of shop or cafĂŠ (if there is one) and toilet facilities.

The promise of the stars:

Â?

it is clean, tidy and an acceptable standard

Â?Â? Â?Â?Â?

it is a good, all round standard

Â?Â?Â?Â?

it is excellent – furnished using high quality materials, superb food where provided and friendly, professional service

it is a very good standard, with attention to detail in every area

Our advisors visit and assess establishments on up to 50 areas from quality, comfort and cleanliness to welcome, ambience and service. The same star scheme runs in England and Wales, so you can follow the stars wherever you go.

Â?Â?Â?Â?Â? an exceptional standard where

It should be noted that those establishments that fail to meet our minimum standards will not be awarded a star rating.

Establishments awarded gold stars have consistently achieved the highest levels of excellence within their star grading.

presentation, ambience, food where provided and service are hard to fault

We grade all types of accommodation from hostels, through to B&Bs and self catering properties to hotels grand and small. We even grade campus accommodation and parks offering holiday homes and camping. So whether you prefer to spend the night under canvas or the canopy of a four-poster bed, we’ll make sure you know the standard to expect.

Now is the time to choose your holiday accommodation

Booking

Smoking

Accepting accommodation by telephone or in writing means you have entered into a legally binding contract with the proprietor of the establishment. If you cancel or fail to take up that accommodation, for whatever reason, the proprietor generally has the right to ask for compensation. You should always check the cancellation terms in advance and, if you must cancel a booking, advise the management immediately.

The majority of Scotland’s indoor public places, including pubs, restaurants and cafés are smokefree by law, creating a healthier and fresher environment for residents and visitors to our beautiful country. Hotels, B&Bs and guest houses are also smoke-free but can designate bedrooms where guests can smoke, if they wish to do so. To check the availability of such bedrooms, please check with the establishment directly when booking. For further information, visit www.clearingtheairscotland.com

This guide has been split into five accommodation sections: Ě+RWHOVDQG,QQV Ě*XHVW+RXVHVDQG% %V Ě6HOI&DWHULQJ Ě&DPSLQJDQG&DUDYDQ3DUNV Ě+RVWHOV$FWLYLW\$FFRPPRGDWLRQ Establishments are listed within these sections in alphabetical order by location and then by business name. Each entry has a map reference relating to the map which appears on page 49 of this guide. The map is helpful if you don’t know where a particular town is in relation to the area that interests you. Where establishments are listed as ‘by’ a town or village it is wise to check the exact location with the operator before making your journey.

For added assurance of quality and standards, all accommodation establishments display a Quality Assurance Award. The scheme is explained on pages 16 and 17.

Insurance and cancellation Should you have to cancel for any reason, it is reassuring to know that you can be insured against any compensation claim. Please ensure you take out cancellation insurance prior to your trip.

Pricing The prices of accommodation, services, and facilities stated in this guide are based on information received from the relevant advertisers. Please note that the prices, include VAT where applicable and are for your guidance only (VAT as at November 2011). Please check prices when you book accommodation and confirm exactly what the quoted price includes.

Look out for the Short Breaks symbol The Scottish Borders offers a fabulous range of quality assured accommodation as listed on pages 20 - 42. Please look out for the short breaks symbol within entries. Contact them direct for current special offers or to make a booking.
