The Darling at The Star achieves new International Five Star Standard

The International Five Star Hotel Standard.  In order to achieve The International Five Star Hotel Standard, every aspect of The Darling’s design and facilities, operations and service were examined in a comprehensive assessment, scrutinised by an international panel of experts from the global hospitality, design and marketing sectors.

Greg Hawkins, Managing Director of The Star said he and the team are incredibly proud of achieving the International Five Star Hotel Standard. “We are thrilled to be recognised as one of the world’s top luxury accommodation and hospitality industry leaders. In addition to class-leading technology and meticulously adorned suites, the team at The Darling work tirelessly to ensure the highest levels of service. “We acknowledge that this incredible accolade is as much reflective of the modern and sophisticated features of the hotel, as it is a result of its people’s exceptional customer service,” said Mr Hawkins.

The International Five Star Hotel Standard was introduced by the team behind International Property Awards and The International Hotel Awards (in Association with Rolls-Royce Motor Cars), to raise the bar on quality standards recognised within the global luxury hotel industry. With almost every country in the world having its own system for rating hotels, regional variations and inconsistent standards can be a problem for travellers, who need failsafe accreditation and ratings to help them to make informed decisions on which luxury hotels to trust. Stuart Shield, President of International Property Media, welcomed The Darling into the elite group of world hotels who have achieved this standard. “Now that The Darling has achieved The International Five Star Hotel Standard, it joins the most elite hotels in the world that share this mark of excellence and exceptional quality of service.”
