Join the AA Guest Accommodation Scheme

Be recognised for the quality you offer

The AA Guest Accommodation Scheme includes Bed & Breakfasts, Guesthouses, Farmhouses, Inns and Restaurants with Rooms. Businesses participating in the scheme cannot use ‘hotel’ as part of their business name – in this case, your assessment would be as a hotel instead.

There are 4 different membership levels for Guest Accommodation.

Full Membership

This involves an overnight inspection testing all services, resulting in a star rating if the criteria is met. When you apply to join the scheme, you’ll be inspected and rated by a professional inspector who will visit overnight as a mystery guest. The following morning the inspector will discuss their visit and give you constructive feedback. 

As well as your establishment having a page on RatedTrips.com, you'll have access to AA logos and a range of signage, and marketing benefits. Full scheme members are eligible for our B&B Awards, including Gold Stars, Silver Stars and Breakfast Award.

SPECIAL OFFER – get up to 10 months' free AA recognition*

Associate Membership

This is a marketing-only option for establishments already rated by one of the tourist boards (VisitEngland, VisitScotland, VisitWales or Tourism Northern Ireland). No inspection will take place and AA Associate Membership ceases should membership of the tourist board cease. You could then market your establishment as an AA X Star Associate member.

Advertised with Visit

This membership level involves an overnight inspection testing all services, but no star rating is awarded. A Rosette award may be awarded for culinary excellence.

Advertised without Visit

This is a marketing-only option without an inspection. Your establishment will feature on RatedTrips.com as 'AA Advertised' and without a star rating, and there are a host of marketing benefits too.
