Assure visitors that your accommodation is safe, clean and legally compliant
What is Entry Level Accreditation?
Your visitors should be able to book any type of accommodation with confidence, from hotels and B&Bs to self-catering properties and holiday parks. They should be reassured that they will be warmly welcomed and that the accommodation is safe, clean and legally compliant with all relevant legislation.
VisitEngland’s Entry Level Accreditation has been designed to provide accommodation businesses with a robust and dependable method to demonstrate that they are operating in a safe, clean and legal way. Initially launched in 2010, the scheme has been regularly revisited to ensure it covers the latest legislation.
VisitEngland works with destinations and local assessment organisations to offer this accreditation scheme on a local level. However, if a business is in an area without a local scheme, they can apply to VisitEngland directly.
How does Entry Level differ from other VisitEngland quality schemes?
Entry Level Accreditation offers reassurance that the accommodation is safe, clean and legal, but does not include a star rating or quality accreditation, which are available through one of VisitEngland’s range of quality assessment schemes.
