However, changes and errors can sometimes occur and we ask you therefore to check for the latest holiday details at the time of booking. In addition to hotel information, please bear in mind that changes and alterations can also affect escorted tour, cruise and pre-planned self-drive itineraries. This may be due to local holidays, festivals or special events, adverse weather conditions, essential maintenance projects or other circumstances outside our control.

Star Ratings Every effort has been made to ensure that the hotels and other accommodation featured in this brochure are correctly represented and will fulfil your expectations for quality and service. It is important to note that, where used; the star classification system is our own and does not conform to any internationally recognised system. The rating, in our opinion, reflects a true representation of the merits of each property. Inevitably, standards will differ slightly between the many destinations which we feature. 2* Economical and comfortable accommodation offering a simple standard of room and limited facilities. 3* Comfortable accommodation with standard rooms, amenities and public areas. Most three-star properties offer a restaurant on-site and some have a swimming pool. 4* Good superior accommodation offering a selection of services. Most four- star hotels feature a choice of restaurants and in addition, many also have a health club and swimming pool. 5* Five-star hotels offer the highest standards of service and facilities and are acknowledged as the leading properties in the area. 5+* The adjacent symbol gives recognition to hotels of exceptional quality. +* Indicates a hotel falling between two categories. Utilities In most of the destinations featured in this brochure, supplies of water and electricity are generally very reliable, however in some of the less developed and more remote destinations you may experience occasional power cuts and water restrictions. Water quality can also differ from the UK and we recommend drinking bottled water which is widely available.
