AA-LISTED BUDGET HOTELS
|Republic of Ireland|
Under the new common standards, accommodation is assessed under three broad categories: hotel, guest accommodation and budget hotel.
Hotels and guest accommodation are both rated using a star system (which carries different criteria for each of the two sectors). Each category is sub-divided into sub-categories depending on the type of accommodation.
Budget hotels are assessed but not awarded stars.
Hotel: formal accommodation with a full service
Country House: peace and quiet with ample grounds or gardens
Small Hotel: limited service with a personal touch
Town House Hotel: a high-quality distinctive service in a city-centre location
Metro Hotel: a full service except dinner, close to town centre restaurants
