College Court in Leicester has been awarded Top Rated status in this year’s Simply The Guest Awards, where only the very best properties in the UK and Ireland are rewarded. The accolade highlights exceptional hotel standards and service across the board and is based purely on genuine guest reviews.

To be awarded Top Rated status means that College Court achieved a minimum review score of 90 percent on the site during the year of 2016.

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.

Andrea Tarpey, spokesperson, comments: “As the UK’s leading online accommodation site, we pride ourselves in being experts when it comes to experiencing the UK and Ireland. Our Simply The Guest Awards have become a highlight of the travel and hotel calendar since they were launched five years ago, and really reflect the true standard of a hotel.

According to our guests, College Court is one of the top hotels in the UK and top of the league in all areas.”
