As many of you know, there are numerous grading schemes out there which are supposed to give you a clue as to the 'quality' of the holiday accommodation you are planning to stay at. Thistles, Roses, Dragons, Ticks, Crowns and Stars...take your pick. It's a fairly old fashioned system whereby a matronly character with a clipboard who has never been camping in her life comes around the site and checks whether your curtains match your saucepans and that there are the correct number of teaspoons in the drawer. Bizarre. We were part of the Visit Britain scheme until last year and were rated at 'Four Stars' for what it's worth. What you probably don't realise is that we had to pay for those inspections, which ran to several hundreds of pounds and to be quite honest, hardly any of our customers took any notice of the rating at all, preferring to go on their own instinct and research they had done on the Internet to make their holiday choices. For us, it was just another industry 'tax' using money which could be better spent on site improvements so we pulled out. However, there has to be a system in which you can check what sort of outfit we are running and give us the feedback we need to make any improvements or changes to our service. Over the years, a number of feedback sites have become available on the Internet and we are quite happy for you to post on these and let other people know how you got on at Lower Treave. One of the best known is Trip Adviser, but there are also more camping and caravanning specific ones such as which can be helpful in making your decision. It is also helpful to us because every post you make improves our profile on the net and effectively is free advertising. Remember though, if you do have a problem with our service, either before, during or after your stay at Lower Treave, please bring it to our attention immediately and we will do all we can to sort it out.


  1. The rapid infrastructural, cultural and economic development in the south Indian city of Hyderabad have augured the emergence of many other related industries and have triggered vigorous development in the such sectors as the hospitality sector. Hyderabad is also a major IT hub and this only proves to be a catalyst in bringing about development in the Hyderabad hotels. Flourishing business have paved the way to the opening of a number of world class business and budget hotels in Hydrabad. Growing business have also led to the growth of quite a many A-grade townships wherein also the hospitality industry is showing interest. As for example, Hospitality giants Hyatt, is all geared up to open two properties in Hyderabad. The first one, due to open in early 2010 is called Park Hyatt Hyderabad. The affiliates of Global Hyatt Corporation and Lanco Hills Technology Park Private Limited, which is a part of Lanco group have announced the signing of a definitive management agreement to open the second hotel in Hyderabad by 2011. The hotel will be named the Grand Hyatt Hyderabad. The hotel will be consisting 400 rooms and will be situated in the upcoming 100 acre township called Lanco hills in Manikonda, two miles from Gachibowli and HITEC city.
