‘Everyone at Red Carnation Hotels is immensely proud at our significant presence in the TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards’, commented Jonathan Raggett, who is the Managing Director of Red Carnation Hotels.’ ‘TripAdvisor is doubtless a key driver of business for us. Travellers want to know what to expect from their hotel stay before they commit, with honest reviews from other consumers being a clear influencer in purchasing decisions. I’m delighted for all our hotel teams that they have been recognised for their hard work in providing excellent levels of comfort and service to all our guests.’

‘Above all, we attribute our considerable guest loyalty and our continued success on TripAdvisor to our personalised approach to guest service. Our philosophy is ’no request too large, no detail too small’ which guarantees an individual approach for each and every person that stays with us.’ ‘Furthermore, these awards are also a testament to our inspirational President and Founder Mrs Beatrice Tollman. She has an innate sense of what it takes to make the guest experience truly exceptional, and has an exceptional eye for detail and design.’
