Oxford, Oxfordshire (PRWEB UK) 16 October 2012
The Westwood Hotel, a newly refurbished privately owned small boutique hotel located near Boars Hill, today announced that it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. The accolade, which honours hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Approximately 10 percent of accommodations listed on TripAdvisor receive this prestigious award.
To qualify for the Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travellers on TripAdvisor. Additional criteria includes the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months.
“The Westwood Hotel is delighted to receive a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence,” said Mr. Drew Ireson, General Manager at The Westwood Hotel. “We’ve worked hard over the past few years to improve not only the hotel by refurbishing the bedrooms and grounds, but also have also strived to offer our customers a personal and memorable experience , and this accolade is evidence that our hard work is translating into positive traveller reviews on TripAdvisor. It is always a challenge for a small independent hotel to compete with larger chain hotels, but accolades like this and more importantly direct positive feedback from our customers, make the ongoing effort we invest into the hotel worth it.”
“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional businesses for consistent excellence, as reviewed by travellers on the site,” said Christine Petersen, president of TripAdvisor for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award gives highly rated establishments around the world the recognition they deserve. From exceptional accommodations in Beijing to remarkable restaurants in Boston, we want to applaud these businesses for offering TripAdvisor travellers a great customer experience.”
