While I applaud your decision and somewhat agree with the choice to ditch AAA, it is always interesting to see Moteliers self-rate using a 5 point system. Many still use the wording star rating on their sites.
The plain truth is if you were a 4 star under the old system, you are possibly only a 3 to 31/2 under the new system., and if you dont consistently spend money on major refurbishment can not realistically still promote a rating of 4.
I have had lengthy conversations with AAA and spoken of my concern of a system that never made use of 1 or 2 stars, but hope that in 3 to 5 years that the public will get used to the new rating.
Self rated properties must be vigilant and adjust their rating in line, or the public will mistrust self rated properties
