Boutique hotel group, Newmark Hotels, Reserves & Lodges, has scooped a total of ten TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence and one sought after Hall of Fame award.
TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence awards are based upon consumer reviews and take into account the quality, quantity and most recent reviews and opinions submitted by travellers over a 12-month period. The ten Newmark properties awarded are: The Dock House Boutique Hotel & Spa, the Victoria & Alfred Hotel and the Queen Victoria Hotel in the heart of the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town; and, also in the Waterfront, Dash restaurant at the Queen Victoria Hotel and Oyo restaurant at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel; Nkomazi Game Reserve in Mpumalanga; The Five-Star Drostdy Hotel in Graaff-Reinet; Motswari Private Game Reserve in the Timbavati – part of the Greater Kruger National Park; The Nyungwe Forest Lodge in Rwanda and finally Coral Lodge 15.41 in Northern Mozambique.
Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame
Another coup is that Newmark’s Victoria & Alfred Hotel has been included in the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame, which is a new award for properties that have won the Certificate of Excellence for five years consecutively. This is some achievement because only nine percent of total winners qualify for the Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame by consistently doing well over five years.
Newmark Hotel’s Managing Director, Neil Markovitz said: “Our hotels and lodges not only appeal to travellers but, more importantly, we give them the service and the overall good experience they are looking for. TripAdvisor keeps us on our toes – the public don’t lie – so these ten awards confirm we’re determined to get it right on every level. We’re delighted.”
