A word or two about the ratings...


First off, the only 'fail' is a one star rating. Two stars is the 'per expected' default, indicating all was okay and your stay should be pleasant enough.

Three, four and five stars increasingly highlight that things were better than expected in terms of price, location, hospitality, friendliness, facilities or bike security; the more stars, the better these factors were.

Finally, the ratings are all relative: its easier for a camp site or hostel to score higher than a guest house or hotel because they're cheaper and expectations are lower.
