College Court in Leicester has been honoured in the Simply the Guest Awards 2016 by achieving the prestigious Top Rated status.

The highly prized Top Rated status rewards only the very best properties globally, highlighting exceptional hotel standards and service. 

To be awarded Top Rated status means that College Court, the University of Leicester’s Conference Centre and Hotel, achieved a minimum review score of 80% on the site during 2015.

The accolade is part of the annual Simply The Guest Awards and is given to a select band of hotels in recognition of their excellent record of positive guest reviews.

These awards are the only UK hotel awards based solely on genuine guest reviews – calculated through the review ratings given by guests who have actually stayed at a property and gone on to publish a review on the website.

Andrea Tarpey, spokesperson said: “The Simply The Guest Awards have become a highlight of the travel and hotel calendar since they were launched four years ago.  Because all reviews on the site come only from customers who have genuinely booked and stayed at the property, Top Rated status is now a trusted benchmark amongst those looking for a hotel where they know they can be confident of a truly outstanding stay.  

“According to our guests, College Court is one of the top hotels in the UK and to receive the honour of a Top Rated status in this year’s Simply The Guest Awards reveals its standards are at the very top of the league in all areas.”

College Court’s Centre Director Steve Crawford said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded Top Rated status. It is firm recognition of the unrivalled quality we insist on here and the hugely exacting high service standards that we have become renowned for.”
