City Lodge Hotel Group wins TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards

Guests have voted four hotels in the City Lodge Hotel Group as their favourites on Tripadvisor.

Fairview Hotel and City Lodge Hotel at Two Rivers Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, Courtyard Hotel Port Elizabeth and City Lodge Hotel Lynnwood in Pretoria have won Tripadvisor 2020 Traveler’s Choice Awards.

The TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards are like the People’s Choice Awards for celebrities in the US – they are voted online by the travelling public who like to give a shout-out to their favourite hotels. To win an award, the property must have received consistently great reviews from the people who matter most – guests.

Lindiwe Sangweni-Siddo, chief operating officer, says: “As we celebrate Tourism Month in South Africa, we want to profusely thank our guests for taking the time to rate their stay on Tripadvisor, making these awards possible. With word of mouth being the most powerful marketing tool, winning awards like this means that other travellers get to read the honest feedback of our guests and know that they can book with confidence and enjoy an excellent hospitality experience with the City Lodge Hotel Group.”
