As a result of the assessment, Why Worry Bed & Breakfast & Fishing Charters Coromandel Town was awarded a 4 star grade in the Guest and hosted category and an enviro bronze award in the responsible tourism category
Mark and Jennifer owners of Why Worry Comment that although qualmarks standards are very high and getting tougher all the time it does assure guests that what they see on websites and other promotional material is exactly what they will receive on any qualmark accredited business. Some other businesses promote themselves as high quality and when guests arrive some of them are very disappointed with regards to what’s advertised and what’s delivered on their arrival, this is some of the feedback we get from guests staying with us.

The Assessment criteria has been developed in conjunction with the tourism industry and is based on research into travellers expectations in areas such as customer service, facilities, cleanliness, safety and other business operations.
“Our official quality assurance can only be earned through an independent and rigorous assessment, so travellers can be assured Qualmark licensed properties meet our high standards, says Qualmark General Manager, Paula McCallum.
The Qualmark star grading system sits alongside the Qualmark endorsement system, for tourism businesses such as adventure activities, transport, attractions and nature experiences.
