I’m really pleased to have recently been awarded a 3 star rating by Manche Tourisme who are the main tourist board for my region. For holiday makers and vacation takers, an independent rating is confirmation that the property and owner exist. It’s verification that the property is also as is described and that standards are being met.
The assessment meeting lasted around two hours and the gite had to be prepared as if guests were coming with beds made, everything cleaned and the heating on. The property was assessed against 112 criteria and I’ll receive my score in due course to see if there are things I can improve on. To get a 5 star rating, for example, you have to have absolutely everything including onsite sports facilities, a pool, garage, hearing loop and phone line.
The tourist office were very complimentary about the range of tourist information I have in the gite and described it as a mini tourist office. Some of the information in the brochures is translated from French into English. I’ve produced an overview document in English and also blog to help English-speaking guests.
I’m hoping that my star rating will give potential guests the confidence to book direct.
