Dartmouth Golf & Country Club has been recognised as among the top five per cent of accommodation providers by, the world’s largest travel review website.

The delightful Devon resort has been accorded TripAdvisor’s certificate of excellence, which honours top-rated accommodation, restaurants and attractions worldwide. To qualify, recipients must maintain an average rating of four or more out of a possible five points as reviewed by independent travellers on the website.

And only five per cent of such businesses listed on the site worldwide have been afforded the status – a fact not lost on Dan Chidley, Dartmouth Golf & Country Club’s sales and marketing manager.

He said: “TripAdvisor uses a sophisticated method to calculate overall ratings to ensure that a venue with just one or two high ratings can’t cheat the system; so to be ranked in the top five per cent of businesses on such a prestigious site is a huge boost for us and testament to the hard work put in by everybody here to ensure the visitor experience is always one to remember.

“The reviews on TripAdvisor are from genuine independent travellers so we are delighted to have been awarded the certificate of excellence, which we will place alongside the various other awards we have received in recent years. We are always genuinely thrilled to be recognised by either our peers or our customers.”

Christine Petersen, president of TripAdvisor for Business, said: “The TripAdvisor certificate of excellence program gives exceptional businesses in a variety of different industries around the world the recognition they deserve. From top-rated restaurants in Boston to top-rated attractions in Barcelona, we want to applaud these businesses for offering TripAdvisor travellers a great customer experience.”

Situated in 225 acres of South Devon countryside, just outside the beautiful town from which it takes its name, Dartmouth Golf & Country Club boasts 27 holes of golf, a luxurious spa complex and a three-star hotel.
