If you plan to make our 2019 list of small-scale accommodation, you need to read this newly developed rating scale.
The Greaves rating scale is a three-tier rating system that classifies small scale accommodation into three categories from one star to three stars, with three being the highest.
The scale was developed by Crystal Bynoe-Greaves, a Travel and Tourism Diploma holder and a Business Management Major.
Secrets of SVG adopts the scale as our official guide to recommending and promoting small-scale accommodations such as Guest Houses, Private Apartments, Airbnb, Eco-Lodges and the like.
