Feature Icons

Ergohacks’s Feature icons is found under the Specification section of our reviews. They are small and simple, each denoting a specific feature. We add them to make it easier to digest multiple facts in a short time span and they give us the capacity to be more transparent about the products, places and services we review.

Each icon is a hyperlink to other products, places and services that also have this particular feature. Feature icons are new and not all reviews have them and not all of them are hyperlinked – we are updated all content as fast as we can.

Accommodation types

The £-sign indicates that the pay-structure is varied and tiered pricing is used. For example, there are a range of accommodation types with features added to each type, but also where multiple add-on options are employed – like paying extra for use of most or all on-site facilities as well as add-on charges for bedding, towels or parking. We do not include seasonal price variation in our assessment – virtually all accommodation have a tiered seasonal rate. We define Glamping as accommodation with no internal bathroom or taps.
