Awards for The Cavendish Hotel

AA 4 Star Hotel

Star ratings, from one to five, show the standard of quality for hotels, guest accommodation and self catering.

Additional information on this classification scheme is available here.

AA 2 Rosettes

Rosettes are awarded annually to AA inspected restaurants for the quality of their food. Most star-rated hotels have their own restaurants and we also inspect these. Not all restaurants receive an AA award, but will generally serve enjoyable food of a reasonable standard.

Additional information on this classification scheme is available here.

Signpost

Our inspectors set the highest standards and expect every one of our luxury hotels in the UK to live up to them. We demand fine cuisine, using the best fresh produce. Bedrooms should be furnished with style and have all the comforts you need away from home. The hotel should be located in an interesting area, with plenty of opportunity for sport and leisure. Above all hotels should be welcoming, places you want to return to again and again.
