Minor Hotels Australia and New Zealand awarded 28 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards in 2021

Minor Hotels has had 28 properties across Australia and New Zealand recognised with a 2021 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Award. 10 of these properties qualify as ‘Hall of Fame’ status, having been awarded a Travellers’ Choice Award each year for five consecutive years.

The Travellers’ Choice Award places each property amongst the top 10% of businesses on Tripadvisor.

“Our guests remain our highest priority, and it is of the utmost importance that they have a positive and COVID-safe experience at all of our properties across Australia and New Zealand. We’ve been delighted to see our customers discover more of Australia in the past twelve months, and we’re proud that our dedication to excellent service and quality product has been recognised by our guests in the Travellers’ Choice Awards,” said Craig Hooley, Chief Operating Office for Minor Hotels Australia and New Zealand.

“Congratulations to all the winners of the 2021 Travelers’ Choice Awards,” said Kanika Soni, Chief Commercial Officer at Tripadvisor. “I know the past year has been extremely challenging for tourism businesses. What has impressed me is how businesses adapted to these challenges, implementing new cleanliness measures, adding social distancing guidelines, and utilizing technology to prioritize guest safety. The Travelers’ Choice Awards highlight the places that are consistently excellent - delivering quality experiences time and time again even while navigating changing customer expectations and new ways of working. Based on a full year of reviews from customers, this award speaks to the great service and experience you provided guests in the midst of a pandemic.”
