Annie Wilson, UK Managing Director of Kayak commented “The star rating can be confusing as a universal standard, but the grey area is generally around the two to four star mark. When you get into the five star league the playing fields level out and it is expected that the hotel will offer a range luxury rooms and suites and facilities will include restaurants, bars, business facilities, a concierge service, swimming pools and a gym. At Kayak we champion smarter travelling and this research will help consumers understand where they can get more for their money when booking a five star experience.”
