Accreditations & Quality Schemes

Visit England Quality Schemes

Visit England has awarded Budock Vean a 4 star Country House Hotel rating, including a Visit England Breakfast Award,  5 stars for our self catering holiday homes, and 4 stars for our holiday cottages.

Visit England offers a range of quality schemes for tourism businesses in England, all of which are managed by Visit England Assessment Services. Their team of over 50 trained quality assessors who visit us annually, assess the quality of our business and award star ratings and accreditation.

With strict criteria for each of the quality schemes, the Visit England assessors check the services and facilities offered to determine the most appropriate level of accreditation.  Each year, every aspect of the business is thoroughly inspected from the efficiency of the booking process to the level of service provided.

Gold and Silver Awards

VisitEngland’s Gold and Silver Awards celebrate accommodation establishments that outperform in their category, offering exceptional quality within their star rating. The awards help guests find special places where hosts go the extra mile, whatever the size, style or star rating of the accommodation.

Breakfast Award

As part of their annual assessment of Hotels and Guest Accommodation businesses, assessors will sample the breakfast, looking at the choice and range of dishes offered, presentation and culinary skills, quality of ingredients and produce, and breakfast service and hospitality. Those with exceptionally high scores will qualify for a VisitEngland Breakfast Award. Businesses must maintain the necessary scores for a Breakfast Award each year.

Gold for being Green

The hotel has been awarded the Green Tourism Business Scheme Gold Award since 2006. The awards certification programme recognises the commitment of tourism businesses which are actively working to become more sustainable. The gold award is acknowledged worldwide as an indicator of good environmentally-friendly practice. We continue working to make Budock Vean even more eco-friendly, but we need your help.
