Top South African hotels ranked among best


15 July 2015

The popular travel site has included two South African hotels in its annual Insiders’ Select list of the best reviewed hospitality properties around the world. Johannesburg’s InterContinental at OR Tambo International Airport and the Taj Hotel Cape Town both received a score of 4.7 out of 5, based on over two million verified guest reviews.

A total of 650 hotels and resorts from across the globe have been chosen for the list this year, and the South African hotels are in good company. Amongst the top 10 ranked establishments are the exclusive Royal Palms Bermuda, the Hotel Panorama in Olbia, Italy and the deluxe B+B Edinburgh in Scotland.

The five-star InterContinental is popular with international tourists and business travellers alike, as a stopover to the rest of Africa. It delivers accessibility, elegance and all the upmarket amenities expected from a high-quality hotel. The Taj – also a five-star graded establishment – is located in the heart of historic Cape Town, and is part of the prestigious Taj Hotel Group. According to Expedia, both hotels have fulfilled the highest standard of excellence to become part of the Insiders’ List, which includes “consistently delivering value with competitive pricing, pristine amenities and superior customer service.’
