We’ve been recognised as an Outstanding Restaurant with Rooms with a 5 star rating in the Restaurant with Rooms sector, by the AA Guide and Visit England

VisitEngland have a team of over 50 trained quality assessors who visit our quality scheme participants, assess the quality of their business and award star ratings and accreditation.  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 AA is the only pan-Britain assessing organisation. In 2018 the AA also took on oversight of Visit England accommodation assessments.
The star rating scheme is probably the most important way that customers choose a hotel or B&B. At a glance, a potential customer can understand that a one-star hotel will provide an informal, basic standard of accommodation while at a five-star hotel will provide more luxurious accommodation and a range of extra facilities.

Visit England and Visit Britain’s quality schemes are available for a range of accommodation types, including hotels, B&Bs, self-catering properties, hostels, holiday parks, campsites and glamping sites, serviced apartments and caravans. Businesses receive either a ‘mystery’ overnight visit or an announced daytime visit, after which the assessor will discuss their findings with the business owner or manager and agree an appropriate star rating or level of accreditation.

This is Quality Assessment you can trust. Both these organisations have been driving quality and standards in the hospitality industry for decades.

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.

Robert Mason, Owner, Quite Simply French, says:

‘The AA 5 Star rating is the gold standard and it’s a wonderful achievement for us to receive it 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.
