Hotel star ratings are normally used to categorize hotels according to their quality standards. The hotel star rating system is generally reliable, however the rating may either be done by a private company or possibly the hotel itself. For instance the Tourism Grading Council graded and assessed Vaalnest Boutique Hotel in order for people to recognize its quality and excellent service.
