Following an annual review by online travel site TripAdvisor, 273 accommodation providers in Blackpool have received the prestigious Certificate of Excellence award.
Purely taking into account feedback from guests who have actually stayed with these providers, the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is awarded to businesses that rank in the top 10% worldwide for traveller feedback.
TripAdvisor spokesman James Kay said: “TripAdvisor is delighted to celebrate the success of businesses which are consistently offering travellers a great customer experience.
“The Certificate of Excellence award provides top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers.
