There are reportedly over 3000 caravan and camping holiday parks across the UK meaning that there’s tough competition to attract holidaymakers. Our team understands the importance that’s placed on the quality of your washroom facilities and so we’ve put together this short guide to help you breeze through your assessments and keep your visitors coming back year after year.

Official accreditations for holiday park washrooms

There are two main official accreditations to help visitors make an informed decision on where to holiday, which include the AA and Visit England Awards. Both of these recognised bodies operate a ‘5 point’ rating to show the level of quality of accommodation and both place importance on the inspecting and rating of your washroom facilities.

Visit England
The criteria for achieving Visit England ‘stars’ includes inspecting ‘the overall quality of the site, including individual pitches/caravans, the arrival service, bathroom and laundry facilities and external signage and lighting.’

AA Awards
AA accreditation for caravan parks and campsites are inspected and rated from one to five ‘black pennants’. ‘These are accessed on the quality and variety of facilities a park offers, including customer care and hospitality, toilet facilities and park landscaping.’

Are your holiday washrooms getting 5-star reviews?

In recent years, alongside Visit England and the AA Awards, there’s a new standard of review that has perhaps become the most powerful. Trip Advisor launched in 2000, ‘provides travellers with the wisdom of the crowds to help them decide where to stay, what to do and where to eat.’ For frank and honest reviews on your washrooms and to see what your visitors are saying, Trip Advisor is the place to start.

It’s time for a change… So if your washrooms are underperforming in the ratings, and your guests are less than happy on Trip Advisor, it’s time to review your washrooms and make improvements which will boost ratings, reviews and drive repeat business.
