What is the Certificate of Excellence award?

The Hotel today announced that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award.

Certificate of Excellence TripAdvisor

How are Certificate of Excellence recipients determined?

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account reviews ratings.  Businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, volume and recency of reviews. Additional criteria include a business’ tenure and popularity ranking on the site.

The Hotel is proud to receive the 2014 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award

“Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a true source of pride for the entire team at The Hotel and we’d like to thank all of our past guests who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor,” said Jan Joris Kriele, General Manager at The Hotel. “There is no greater seal of approval than being recognised by one’s customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence to our business and our continued commitment to excellence.”

“TripAdvisor is pleased to honour exceptional hospitality businesses for consistent excellence,” said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers. From Australia to Zimbabwe, we want to applaud exceptional hospitality businesses for offering TripAdvisor travellers a great customer experience.”
