This is not a quality reflection on those providers - the costs of obtaining and maintaining ratings can be prohibitive, particularly for the smaller B&Bs with just one or two rooms available where it might not be cost effective to maintain a rating. Our policy on the Guide is not to restrict consumer choice by refusing to list non-rated B&B's - it's your choice!
