Andrea Tarpey, a LateRooms.com spokeswoman, said: “Guest reviews give genuine, unbiased insight into the experiences other guests have had at a property, which is so important in helping customers decide on the best hotel to book for their stay.
“They’re also a great way for hotels to receive feedback on the experiences and service that they’re providing.
“To achieve Top Rated status, hotels must have received a review score of at least 80% on the LateRooms.com site – as well as a minimum number of reviews from guests who have stayed at the property – during 2016.”
