We try to offer you optimal quality. Therefore we stay in close contact to our operators to advise them closely and convince them to become classified. Thus you can be assured to receive the respective quality, facilities and the service promised in your accommodation.
Our holiday flats, homes and private rooms have been voluntarily classified according to the criteria of the DTV, (the German Tourism Association), the hotels according to the criteria of the DeHoGa (German Association of Hotels and Pubs). The operations without star-designation have not or not yet taken part in this classification. No conclusions regarding the quality can be made. The classifications are valid for a duration of three years. The classification criteria you can read under www.hotelsterne.de or www.deutschertourismusverband.de.

The firms certified according to “Service Quality Germany in the Saarland” have established a quality management in their house to be able to respond to the customer’s wishes in an as ideal as possible manner. Efficient internal working processes as well as continual involvement of the employees belong to the special efforts of these firms. Further information about this initiative you’ll receive under www.servicequalitaet-saarland.de and under www.tourismus.saarland.de, in the rubric "Presse & Partner".
The Step 1 firms have put into place and implemented the first step. Focal point is the introduction of service quality in the firm with the integration of all employees with a special view on the guest’s wishes. Basis for the certification is the self appraisal of the firm.
The Step 2 firms have implemented the service quality firmly in that their services have been checked through questioning of employees and customers as well through an external “mystery check”. Basis for the certification is the outside appraisal of the firm.
