Hotel search website trivago.co.uk have released the results of their annual trivago Awards, using over 175 million aggregated hotel reviews and semantic analysis to determine the best-rated hotels in regions across the UK. This year the best hotels have been awarded across eight different categories: 3-star, 4-star, 5-star, B&Bs, Value for Money, Breakfast, Guest Service and Guest Rooms.
By analysing reviews aggregated from different sources across the web, trivago aims to award hotels on a basis which is accurate, comprehensive and impartial.
Johannes Thomas, Managing Director at trivago, comments “We aggregate and analyse more than 175 million hotel reviews from websites all over the world. This gives us strong insights into what hotels are particularly good at. Our trivago awards recognise those hoteliers who deliver an exceptional experience to their guests, and we are proud and delighted to award those achievements.”
Blanch House boutique hotel in Brighton is the best 3-star hotel in the South East this year, with a rating of 91.88.
Co-owner Jeremy Ornellas commented, “We are always really pleased to gain recognition from independent parties. The trivago judging is a very comprehensive process with the customer as its heart, so the award means a lot to Blanch House. We have a great and really empowered team at Blanch House. We aim to provide a little bit of luxury in which to relax and unwind or explore the delights of Brighton, where nothing is too much trouble for our guests.”
The data for the B&B, 3-star, 4-star and 5-star categories is taken from the trivago Rating Index (tRI), which aggregates over 175 million hotel reviews globally. An algorithm is used to produce a 100-point index score, which is updated daily to produce clear, transparent and unbiased results. For the trivago Awards, hotels with sufficient availability and at least 20 reviews were considered.
