Jersey 5 Star Guest Accommodation

Pierson Suite Bedroom - Jersey Chalet - Eulah Guest House in Jersey

How are Hotels and Guest Accommodation Rated in the UK?

The hotel and accommodation rating system was updated in 2007 using National Quality Assurance Standards. The aim was to make the hotel and accommodation rating system simpler to understand and consistent across England, Scotland, Wales and the rest of Britain. The four assessment bodies, Visit Britain, Visit Scotland, Visit Wales and the AA all signed up to the new hotel assessment system. Where as before you had the confusing system of stars, diamonds and moons today all accommodation is categorized as either hotel, guest accommodation or self catering and are rated from 1 to 5 stars.


The category rating system in Jersey is carried out to the same standards by the Visit Britain assesment board on behalf of Jersey Tourism and the Jersey Hospitality Association. We are proud to announce Eulah Country House has been designated as a five star guest accommodation and has been recognised for excelent service and quality accommodation with a gold award from the Visit Britain assessment board.
