The Nare Hotel has been rated as a 4 Red Star hotel by the AA  - the only one in Cornwall - and likewise is the only hotel in Cornwall to be included in the Pride of Britain Hotels consortium.

Pride of Britain

The consortium was formed in 1982 to enable like-minded hoteliers to pool their resources to reach a wider audience of discerning customers. Membership is limited to no more than 50 properties, and it is the members themselves who decide whether a new applicant is suitable to belong to the consortium, following anonymous inspection and a vote.

The consortium seeks to represent a mixture of traditional and contemporary styles of privately owned hotel, with an emphasis on great hospitality.  Please do have a look at the Pride of Britain website .

The AA

The AA act as independent assessors of hotels throughout the UK. They regularly send inspectors to The Nare to ensure that the hotel continues to exceed the standards demanded of a four star hotel. The Nare has remained the AA's highest rated four star hotel in Cornwall for the last twenty years.

Inspectors Choice Hotels -  the ones with Red Stars!

These hotels stand out as the very best in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, regardless of style. The selected Inspectors' Choice hotels are identified by Red Stars.
