21              QUALITY AND FEEDBACK

We are committed to providing quality accommodation and conduct regular audits to ensure that high standards are maintained at the apartments. Many of the apartments are also independently assessed through the Visit Britain Quality in Tourism scheme and details of the star ratings awarded can be found on our website. We also welcome feedback from our guests and ask them to complete a guest satisfaction survey on departure. We value this feedback which provides us with useful information on how we can improve our services further.
