VisitWiltshire is committed to promoting Wiltshire as a quality destination for UK and overseas visitors. VisitWiltshire only promotes accommodation that has been assessed and achieved a star rating, or is awaiting assessment, with one of the recognised organisations, VisitBritain or the AA or through the Wiltshire Approved Scheme.
Visit Britain and the AA grade establishments offering accommodation under a set of common quality standards agreed by the AA and the UK tourist authorities: VisitBritain, VisitScotland and Wales Tourist Board. The aim is to make accommodation standards easy to understand and to give you confidence that establishments meet the standard you expect. So you can book your accommodation with the assurance that it will always be of the quality required by the grading it displays. The gradings are renewed annually so you can be confident that the quality will be maintained.
These descriptions apply to all types of accommodation. Use them as a general guide to what you can expect.
1 star: Simple, practical, no frills.
2 star: Well presented and well run.
3 star: Good level of quality and comfort.
4 star: Excellent standard throughout.
