Detailed 250-point assessment

As we are looking for a small number of very best hotels from each country, every aspect of your hotel will be taken into consideration including service, facilities, interior design and safety.

The questions require your detailed and complete responses in order to be assessed accurately. It is a condition of participation that your hotel must be willing to accept spot checks in order that our assessors can verify the information supplied. We do not mystery shop hotels by secret inspection as we need access to inspect areas of the hotel that might not be available to guests.

Once we have received the completed assessment form, we check your documents to enable us to confirm acceptance and present the successful candidate with their International Five Star. We send a welcome pack containing everything you need to get the best out of your new status.
