Quality Assessed

You can be assured of a quality stay with Carbis Bay Holidays as we have committed to being 100% Quality Assessed with Visit England. All of our properties are independently assessed on  yearly basis to stirct criteria set out by Visit England.

All of the four and five star ratings that are quoted in our portfolio, have achieved or exceeded these high standards therefore our guests can be certain that whichever property you choose it will have achieved a four or five star standard.

The assessors work to strict criteria to check the available facilities. A quality score is awarded for every aspect of the layout and design of the accommodation, the ease of use of all the appliances, the comfort of the beds, the range and quality of kitchen equipment and, most importantly, cleanliness. For very high scoring properties a Gold award may be awarded. The more stars, the higher the quality and the greater the range of facilities and services provided.

To achieve higher star ratings, an increasing level of facilities and services are offered. For example, a 3 star accommodation must offer bed linen (with or without additional charge) while at 4 star, all advertised sleeping space will be in bedrooms (unless a studio) and beds will be made up on arrival.

  • Properties with an ‘Awaiting Rating’ rating are new to our portfolio and are waiting for their assessments to be carried out. However our teams advise new owners of the standards that apply to all our properties and therefore  new properties continue to maintain the high standards our guests expect.

Awaiting Grading

Awaiting Grading

You can expect the same quality from a property bearing this logo. It is likely that it has joined our collection recently and although it meets our high standards, a Visit England rating will have been applied for and is awaiting the inspectors visit.
