Given their geographical location far from major urban centers, most outfitters must deal with constraints that do not affect other categories of establishments (hotels, tourist residences, etc.). Because of these constraints, the evaluation criteria used to determine the overall quality of outfitter accommodation units are specific to this category.
A question of score
Since it is a score that determines the quality level of an accommodation unit, it is sometimes possible to observe a significant difference between two units with the same rating level solely because of the score difference. For example, one cottage may have achieved the minimum score to be rated 3* while the other is only a few points away from being rated 4*. If you have any questions about the quality level of an accommodation unit you have stayed in, you are invited to contact the QOF at 1-800-567-9009.
