All the national assessing bodies (VisitEngland*, VisitScotland, Visit Wales and the AA) now assess hotels and guest accommodation (including B&Bs) to the same criteria and award one to five stars. The star ratings reflect the overall quality of the experience. When choosing your accommodation look for the Quality Rose, the official marque of the Enjoy England national tourist board rating scheme.
Gold and silver awards are given to hotels and guest accommodation that provide exceptional quality in all areas but in particular in service and hospitality.

The East Midlands Enjoy England Excellence Awards provides a unique opportunity to reward outstanding tourism businesses that help make England so attractive to visitors. Categories cover everything from Best Tourism Website and Large Hotel of the Year to Best Visitor Attraction. Winning an award at the tourism industry's equivalent of the 'Oscars' guarantees valuable media exposure and opens up extensive marketing opportunities
