(PRWEB) September 23, 2010
The multi-award winning Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa, Cape Town, part of the family-owned Red Carnation Hotel Collection, has been selected in the Best Family Hotels and Cruises list, Africa + the Middle East, in the Travel + Leisure magazine, with an incredible score of 93.85.
This comes hot on the heels of other recent awards such as recognition by readers of the same prestigious magazine's 15th annual reader survey of the absolute best Hotels in the world with a near perfect score of 93.62. The Hotel was rated 34th in the list of the World's Top 100 Hotels, and 8th in the list of the best lodges and resorts in Africa and the Middle East - the highest rating for any Hotel in Cape Town.
This week, the three 5-star properties belonging to the Red Carnation Hotel Collection in South Africa - The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Retreat and The Oyster Box - each received Diamond Awards, the highest of all the categories, at the Diners Club Winelist Awards 2010. This is the third consecutive year that The Twelve Apostles has gained Diamond status.
It has also been voted as one of the Top 10 Hotels for offering the most breathtaking views in the world by Hotels.com®, the world's leading Hotel booking website.
From the 120,000 Hotels offered by Hotels.com®, the Twelve Apostles was chosen in the top 10 and the only property in Africa. The Hotel has become legendary in Cape Town.
Expedia® travellers have ranked the Hotel among the world’s best Hotels on this year’s Expedia Insiders’ Select™ list. The list formally recognises individual Hotels worldwide that consistently deliver excellent service, a great overall experience and a notable value. The full list represents only a small percentage of the world’s top Hotels from the more than 110,000 Hotel properties offered on Expedia.
The Red Carnation Hotel Collection has also become the first worldwide company to achieve the new Gold Standard set by Investors in People, whose standards help organisations in every sector transform their business performance.
