eviivo Awards 2011 - Winners and Finalists Revealed
LONDON, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
eviivo Ltd. presents the winners and finalists of the eviivo Gold and Friendliest Awards 2011 - two awards launched last year to recognise and reward the excellence of small, independent accommodation businesses throughout the UK, as voted by their guests.
The eviivo Gold Award and the eviivo Friendliest Award are based on the online reviews from guests who have stayed in the featured accommodation. All properties using eviivo's online booking softwareÂ are eligible for these awards - all is needed is a minimum of 10 online guest reviews received during the year and the rest is down to the feedback and opinion published by the guests.
Kathryn Glover, eviivo's Commercial Director, said: "Online guest reviews have totally transformed the travel industry and research shows that today, more thanÂ 8 out of 10 travellers check reviews before bookingÂ a place to stay. Throughout 2011, eviivo collected overÂ 356,300 genuine reviews on behalf of 4,670 propertiesÂ and theÂ overall rating scoreÂ was a staggeringÂ 4.4 out of 5!
"We are extremely proud of the eviivo Awards' winners and finalists for reaching the top of the list and also of all our customers for receiving such high review scores. This is a testament to the excellence of service and unique guest experience provided by B&Bs, small hotels, guesthouses and inns in the United Kingdom."
