Hospitality Assured is the quality standard created by the Institute of Hospitality and accredited businesses must demonstrate they meet the awards standard for service and business excellence. Hospitality Assured is a process of continuous improvement to encourage businesses to look at their own operation from the customer’s perspective and to see where improvements should be made to benefit the business. This is done by looking at how businesses score against the criteria in Hospitality Assured's nine step standard from customer research through to service delivery.
