B&B reaches the gold standard

A NORTH Northumberland bed and breakfast has won a prestigious award – the only winner in the North East.

Primrose Cottage in Lowick won an inaugural eviivo Gold Award, based on the testimonies of guests.

Bob and Irene Bellerby, of Primrose Cottage, the only Gold winners in the North East, said: “We have worked hard to make Primrose Cottage a place to stay, relax and enjoy the local area and we are delighted to have won this eviivo award based on genuine customer satisfaction and positive reviews through the frontdesk booking system.

“We feel sure this award will enhance our future bookings.”

The award is based on over 90,000 online reviews collected from genuine guests who have stayed in over 4,000 small independent hotels, B&Bs, guesthouses, farms, cottages, inns, pubs and restaurants with rooms during 2010.

The guest reviews were collected via eviivo frontdesk, the system which powers online booking through the accommodation’s own website and other major travel websites. The awards were made for the highest scoring properties in each UK region for 2010.
