Logo - STAR Ratings Australia v2Hundreds of hotels, motels and resorts are abandoning the “official” STAR Ratings Australia system, according to a weekend newspaper report which said many properties are opting to self-rate rather than upgrade their properties to meet new rating criteria.

It’s been under pressure for several years with claims its relevance has diminished with the rise and rise of Online Travel Agents and review sites such as TripAdvisor. There’s also issues with its judging criteria.

The report, which appeared in the Sunday Telegraph, said STAR Ratings Australia operations manager George Campbell confirmed many properties were now self-rating but that was an “easy out” for those unwilling to reinvest in their infrastructure.
