What is Star Grading?

Your independent quality assessment

Besides those 5-cornered eye-catching symbols that are added to an institution’s name, TGCSA Star Grading is an official ranking that is recognised the world over. It is awarded once an independent quality assessment is completed and approved, which helps all travellers know what to expect upfront from an establishment like a Hotel, B&B, Guest House etc.

Local establishments are graded from 1 Star up to 5 Stars. With 1 Star being very basic in the facilities it offers and 5 Stars being a place with all the bells and whistles. But you need not be a triple-story plush hotel owner to be awarded a 5 Star Grading. When our Assessors perform a grading, they are mindful of the type of accommodation being graded. This means that it is possible for smaller B&B’s to achieve 5 Star Grading’s too – provided they meet the relevant criteria.

Simply put, our TGCSA Star Grading is based on your institution’s overall quality as well as the facilities expected from a particular Star Grading. So those 5 shining stars could be a lot closer than you think.
