Visit England has a team of more than 50 trained quality assessors who visit our quality scheme participants, assess the quality of their business and award star ratings and accreditation.

The AA Hotel Services have been recognising accommodation since 1908 and first introduced the star rating scheme in 1912, recognising and rewarding establishments for the quality and range of their services and facilities.

The 5 star rating means that Quite Simply French shows awareness of each guest's needs with nothing being too much trouble. All bedrooms are en suite or have a private bathroom. Excellent quality beds and furnishings. Breakfast includes specials and home-made items, high quality ingredients, and fresh local produce.

Quite Simply French was also awarded an AA Dinner Award and Visit England Highest Quality Food Award, indicating a very special dinner, with an emphasis on freshly prepared local ingredients.

QSF owner Robert Mason said: "The AA 5 Star rating is the gold standard and it’s a wonderful achievement for us to receive it for the first time round.

"Our success is testament to the dedication of our dedicated team and we will continue to invest in our people, our property and our customers.

"The AA and Visit England are a benchmark for quality in the industry because their inspection process is both credible and transparent, so this accreditation really does mean a great deal to us."
