12 Red Carnation Hotels have been inducted in to TripAdvisor®’s inaugural Hall of Fame, a higher proportion than any other UK hotel group.
In its first year, the Hall of Fame has been established to mark the fifth anniversary of TripAdvisor’s Certificates of Excellence Awards, and recognises businesses that have earned a Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years. With the release this week of the Certificates of Excellence, Red Carnation sees 12 of its 17-strong collection reach the Hall of Fame, which consists of only two percent of businesses on TripAdvisor.
Jonathan Raggett, Managing Director of Red Carnation Hotels commented:
Red Carnation Hotels are thrilled to have so many of our properties welcomed in to TripAdvisor’s inaugural Hall of Fame. Winning year after year, together with the high rankings our hotels enjoy, has had a very positive impact on our business, helping us stand out from the competition in each of the locations we operate in. We are firm believers in the transparency of online guest reviews, which challenges us every day to deliver exceptional service and incredible guest experiences. These awards are a great source of pride for the entire team at Red Carnation Hotels and we would like to thank all of our guests who have taken the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor.
