HotelsCombined recognizes the Fairway Motor Inn amongst the best hotels in Australia

HotelsCombined is a hotel price comparison website that was recently announced as The Best Hotel Booking Site in 2020 by Frommer's. HotelsCombined owned by KAYAK, has selected Fairway Motor Inn to receive the official Recognition of Excellence Award. This selection has come from HotelsCombined’s extensive surveys using data from millions of guest reviews for a wide range of accommodation within Australia.

Fairway Motor Inn has consistently produced a high satisfaction rating among guests and travel industry experts. Fairway Motor Inn now joins an elite group of hotels around the world that have been awarded the HotelsCombined Recognition of Excellence. This exclusive collection of highly-rated accommodations has been chosen using a strict set of criteria such as the quality and consistency of reviews, the absence of recurring or unresolved issues with customers, popularity of the property and of course, the overall resulting score.

“We are very pleased to be acknowledged for this award and the standard of accommodation and service that we provide for our customers”, said Fairway Motor Inn’s manager, Debbie Gardner

“We are thrilled to be working with the best hotels in Australia. Fairway Motor Inn has proven its place among them with this award and its commitment to providing high-quality services to all guests,” said Melinda Balazs, Hotel Awards Program Manager at HotelsCombined.

“With HotelsCombined, 30 million people are finding the best hotel deals available online every month. The HotelsCombined Recognition of Excellence Award makes it even easier for travellers to find the top hotels for customer service and guarantee the best value for their money.”

Hall of Fame Winners

South Coast Regional TourismAs some of you may know we take great pride in our property and are regulary recgonised with various Tourism Awards. We were once again Finalists in the South Coast Regional Tourism Awards for 2016. We came up against some very stiff competition in our category competing against some big name motels so this time we were not surprised not to take out a Gold Medal.

We were delighted to find out though that we won entry into the Hall of Fame, which is recognition for having won our category for Executive Accommodation 3 times which is quite an achievement in itself considering all those we have had to compete against over the years.

We would like to thank all of those involved and acknowledge the hard work that people put in to make sure that South Coast Tourism delivers a great experience to our customers.
