Quality in Falmouth Membership

The Quality in Falmouth local accommodation inspection scheme is run by Rosemary Riddette-Gregory on behalf of the Falmouth and District Hotels Association (FDHA). Quality in Falmouth inspections cover four main areas and aim to ensure that properties we inspect are safe, clean, legal and green.

Safe and Legal

QiF have a checklist of all legislation covering holiday accommodation. The checklist covers a wide range of areas including:

Once the inspection has been successfully completed, members will be asked to sign a form to agree they are complying with all legislation appertaining to their property. Many aspects of the inspection can improve the profitability of your business. For instance, introducing effective industry standard cancellation terms and conditions can cut down on lost bookings.

Clean

Your inspector will visit every guest bedroom and bath or shower room offered as guest accommodation. All public areas both inside and outside will also be inspected. In self catering establishments the kitchen will be inspected and the inventory will be checked.

Green

Owners will be asked to detail any green or sustainable actions and practices they are operating in their establishment. This can include the use of environment friendly products or buying food from local suppliers in order to support the local economy. Other green options could include insulation, energy saving, recycling and sustainable transport.

Quality

In terms of quality, the standard of decor including furnishings and soft furnishings will be inspected. This includes towels, bed linen, mattress and pillow protection and gratis extras (tissues, chocolates, biscuits, beverages etc). We will also review the provision of TVs, radios and DVD/CD players. Tourist information and other information signage will also be inspected both inside and outside. Parking and outside sitting areas and any seasonal flower displays will also be checked.

Charges

Charges start at £75 for a single self-catering unit or a guesthouse with up to three bedrooms. There is an additional charge of £15 per extra bedroom or self catering unit on same site. Individual quotes for larger properties with ten or more bedrooms are available by negotiation. There is no VAT as Quality in Falmouth is not VAT registered.
