Choosing the right accommodation can sometimes be challenging, even with official star ratings. We categorize hotels online to offer a general guide, but standards can vary within the same class. It’s crucial to read individual hotel descriptions carefully before making a choice.

Hotel grading is an essential aspect of choosing accommodation, but it’s not always straightforward. Here’s a breakdown to help navigate hotel grades:


1. Official Star Ratings: Most hotels have official star ratings provided by relevant authorities. These ratings are based on various criteria such as service quality, amenities, and facilities.


2. Categorization: Hotels are categorized online to offer a general guide to customers. However, it’s crucial to understand that standards can vary even within the same category.


3. Individual Hotel Descriptions: Before making a choice, carefully read individual hotel descriptions. These descriptions provide detailed information about the hotel’s amenities, services, and facilities, giving you a clearer picture of what to expect.


4. Considerations: Keep in mind that while star ratings and categorizations provide a general guideline, personal preferences and specific needs play a significant role in choosing the right hotel. Factors such as location, budget, amenities, and travel purpose should also be considered.


5. Reviews and Recommendations: Reading reviews from other traveller’s and seeking recommendations from friends or travel experts can provide valuable insights into the quality and experience of a particular hotel.


6. Booking Policies: Familiarize yourself with the booking policies of the hotel, including cancellation terms, payment methods, and any additional fees or charges.


7. Flexibility: Remain flexible in your expectations, as hotel experiences can vary based on factors such as seasonal changes, renovations, or staffing.


By considering these factors and doing thorough research, you can make an informed decision when choosing a hotel that best suits your needs and preferences.

Triple/Quad Rooms

A third or fourth person sharing a room may either share existing beds or have an extra bed placed in a double/twin room. Conditions may be cramped, so booking two rooms might be preferable.


– Car Seats: Child seats are not provided for transfers, and legislation varies by country. If you need one, bring your own or contact our Sales team, though an additional charge may apply.

– Free Child Accommodation Stays: Typically based on sharing existing beds. Separate beds may incur charges, and meal plan charges still apply.

“Children on Holiday”: Offers depend on room availability. Infant charges and cot fees vary, and meal details are provided locally.
