All accommodation featured on this website is inspected annually by The AA, VisitEngland or under the Dorset Approved Visitor Accommodation Scheme (DAVAS). This new scheme ensures that all legal requirements regarding health and safety are met and that good customer practices are being implemented and provides all DAVAS inspected accommodation with either a pass or fail.
Many of the properties also choose to undertake a more complete assessment by either VisitEngland or the AA. As well as the elements of the Dorset Approved Visitor Accommodation Scheme, the quality of the guest experience is assessed. Properties are visited annually by trained and impartial assessors and are graded from one to five stars or pennants, with five being the highest available.
