Loved for their upscale quality, attention to detail and super service, England’s fab four star hotels create a memorable stay for all the right reasons. Firstly, there’s the concierge! The hotel guest’s go-to person for information on restaurant openings, local attractions, travel and more! Secondly, the hotel facilities at a four star hotel need to cater for many needs and this is often depicted with the variety of guest rooms in a four star hotel. For example, in addition to having standard and deluxe rooms, a four star hotel has luxury suites too. A four star hotel will also cater for guests with access needs too.
