Port Douglas Leads Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards 2012
The 2012 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards for Best Hotels has placed four Port Douglas hotels in the overall Top 25, with 2 in the Top 10.
“It’s a great result for our region and shows the popularity of the diverse range of excellent accommodation in this fantastic destination,”
Tourism Port Douglas Daintree members are justifiably proud of the recognition in the newly announced 2012 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards.
Antonia and Fred Eggers, owner managers of Martinique on Macrossan which rated No. 3 of all Australian hotels, say their guests appreciate the total package.
“We’re fortunate to have repeat guests from all over the world who say they enjoy the total package here - service, price, hospitality, location. We enjoy great interaction with our guests - it’s the key to this business. The recognition by TripAdvisor is very, very good for Port Douglas,’ said Fred Eggers.
Ros Bourguignon, manager of Coconut Grove Apartments, said they were honoured and delighted to be rated No.9 in Australia for excellence in accommodation and No. 4 in Australia for luxury accommodation.
“Coconut Grove was built as a benchmark property to provide unique five star luxury accommodation in the heart of Port Douglas. We strive to provide our guests with excellence in service and to ensure our amenities are second to none. We would like to thank all our patrons who have taken the time to provide feedback on TripAdvisor and allow our property to be ranked as one of Australia’s best,” said Ros Bourguignon.
