Iain at Car Hire Edinburgh Airport hopes this news brings in more holiday makers to the city and car hire customers to explore what the city has to offer.
The only UK city to be on the list of the world’s best hotel destinations is Edinburgh. The survey was based on hotel reviews by almost seven million customers puts the Scottish Capital above favourites such as Chicago, Krakow and Marrakech.
Tristan Nesbitt, chairman of the Edinburgh Hotels Association, said “Edinburgh’s hotels are truly passionate about delivering an exceptional visitor experience. Many have recently benefited from major investment which, combined with an exciting influx of new hotel openings, ensures the city continues to offer visitors a diverse and high-quality choice of accommodation.”
Website Adoga’s “Travel Smarts” list compiles the results of its users’ highest-rated accommodation, in destinations with more than 100 hotels. Cape Town in South Africa has been crowned the top spot, while the Maldives is ranked a close second. Edinburgh is ranked number 18 in the 25-strong list – but is the only city in the UK to feature on the guide.
After every stay, Adoga.com users submit reviews and are asked to score hotels on a scale of 0 to 10 in six categories. A hotel’s total score is an average of those numbers, which the site used to compile its recent list. The average score for Edinburgh’s hotels was 8.0, in comparison with Cape Town’s 8.43.
