‘Wel­com­ing city’ ac­co­lade for Perth Bril­liant fourth plac­ing from top hol­i­day web­site

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Trav­ellers are as­sured of a warm wel­come when they ar­rive in Perth ac­cord­ing to Book­ing.com that they value a hu­man con­nec­tion when they travel, whether it’s some ex­tra at­ten­tion to de­tail or a truly in­di­vid­u­alised ap­proach to ser­vice.

“With these awards, we cel­e­brate and thank all of the amaz­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion providers who cre­ate spe­cial travel ex­pe­ri­ences for our cus­tomers on a daily ba­sis.”

Book­ing.com also named Sky Lodge, based in the grounds of Perth Air­port, as the top place to stay in the city, with the web­site bosses say­ing trav­ellers of­ten look for “unique” places to stay.

To be recog­nised with a Guest Re­view award, the prop­erty has to have an av­er­age score of eight or higher from at least five or more re­views.

Cus­tomers are en­cour­aged to re­view their stay af­ter they leave, and can be asked to com­ment on clean­li­ness, com­fort, lo­ca­tion, fa­cil­i­ties, staff and value for money.

Lucy Stock, man­ager at Sky Lodge, said: “We are cer­tainly busy enough we get peo­ple com­ing for busi­ness and at the mo­ment a lot of our guests are work­ing on the new roads, but we get a lot of tourists in the sum­mer.

“We also get a lot of for­eign vis­i­tors as well, be­cause the eas­i­est way to find us is on Book­ing.com, we have cer­tainly found that.

“To get a Guest Re­view award was very nice, Book­ing.com is good at hand­ing out cer­tifi­cates and they are re­ally nice to dis­play.

“I think all of our staff have con­trib­uted to mak­ing Perth a more friendly place.

“When we check peo­ple in we rec­om­mend places for them to go, and it de­pends on why they are here but of­ten peo­ple ask what kind of things they can do and they like to stay in the area for a few days.

“We know which places are good to send guests to.”

The list also put the UK as a whole as the sev­enth best in the world for wel­com­ing in vis­i­tors, af­ter Italy, Spain, France, Ger­many, the USA and Croa­tia.
