TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Award - 4 in a row!!

Wow, 4 in a row! We blogged about our 1st Trip Advisor Travelers’ Choice Award in 2011, and blogged about the 2nd award in 2012 and blogged about the 3rd last year too. 

This year when the Travelers’ Choice Awards came out, our much beloved category was not there….gone.  We have recently learnt from an official Trip Advisor press release in Japan that; “Until last year the award had been announced as a part of "Travelers' Choice ™ Hotel Awards", but in order to provide accolades of greater clarity to accommodation providers who present “hospitality” to a level such that it remains in the hearts of guests, this year it was decided to announce the service category individually. (taken from a Trip Advisor press release dated 15 April 2014 and translated by Jeff)

We are once again super duper proud to say we’ve done it again.  Yes, Best Service awards 4 years in a row. 

This year we are No. 7 on the list of Top 25 Hotels with Exceptional Service in New Zealand and No. 10 on the list of Top 25 Hotels with Exceptional Service in the South Pacific.  This follows a top 10 finish in 2011, another award in 2012 and No.8 in NZ and No.15 in the South Pacific in 2013.

This is the 12th year of the awards and the second year that NZ has had its own category. The first 2 awards we received were in the South Pacific Category, and last year we were No. 8 in NZ.  This year we have gone up one ranking and have scored in the top ten in the South Pacific category which includes all of Australia as well.

It’s great to see Trip Advisor Awards are continuing to develop because they reward hard work judged by untold numbers of real guests!

So, if you are looking for great service in Christchurch, stay at a great motel which has been judged by the guests themselves.  Stay at a motel that has won in the Best Service category 4 years in a row. Stay at CentrePoint on Colombo Motel!

We’re once again elated and humbled but before we give ourselves a well deserved pat on the back, we’ll say thanks to all our guests who took the time to review us on Trip Advisor! 

As for our pat on the back, it might just be a nice bottle of wine with dinner this evening while continuing to provide more great service to our wonderful guests!
