AWARDS/SYMBOLS

VisitScotland (Scottish Tourist Board)
The Star System is a world-first. It denotes quality assurance on a range of 1 to 5 stars. This is why it is only the quality of the welcome and service, the food, the hospitality, ambience and the comfort and condition of the property which earns VisitScotland stars, not the size of the accommodation or the range of facilities. Gold stars recognise businesses which constantly achieve the hightest level of excellence within their VisitScotland star rating. This business has excelled in the areas of customer care and hospitality and displays evidence of a real commitment to staff development and training.

The quality grades awarded are, eg: 5 star small hotel 5 star gold country house hotel
5 stars Exceptional, world-class
4 stars Excellent
3 stars Very Good
2 stars Good
