About English Hotels
English Accommodation Definition
British Tourist Authority defines English hotels as below:
- Hotels tend to be located in towns and cities and range from small privately owned establishments to large international chain hotels. They usually offer breakfast and another main meal, which is not always included within the price of the room. Leisure facilities are usually available in bigger hotels and can include gyms, swimming pools and beauty salons. Special offers are often available at the weekends for the leisure traveller.
- Town house hotels are small, personally run town centre hotels, which concentrate on privacy, luxuriously furnished bedrooms or suites and high-quality service. They may not have public rooms or formal dining arrangements but offer room service and are usually located in areas well served by restaurants.
- Country house hotels are usually set in more rural, peaceful surroundings, providing outdoor sports facilities (golf, horse riding etc). The rooms often have special features such as four-poster beds and are luxuriously appointed. Country House Hotels tend to be more personally run than city hotels.
- B&Bs can prove exceptional value for money and (as many are run by families) supply a real insight into the British way of life. Locations may vary greatly from small villages or town centres to the seaside. Rooms will be comfortably furnished and en suite bathrooms are increasingly the standard (but it is advisable to check before booking).

The above statements are quoted from British Tourist Authority Website.
It does not mean that Star ratings are better than Diamond ratings. It is probably better to think accommodations with diamond rating tend to be smallish hotels such as town house hotels or B&Bs. - UK Hotel Booking.
