International travel portal gives Gondwana Lodges thumbs up
The Gondwana Collection Lodges that have been listed on HolidayCheck, the largest German portal that allows users to comment on travel destinations online, for the past year have received 90-100% recommendations.
Public Relations Officer Inke Stoldt said that, “We are grateful that our guests take the time to evaluate our properties on travel portals. With the constructive criticism offered by our guests, can we continuously improve our product and offer a memorable, carefree Namibian experience”.
According to Stoldt the lodges have had compliments such as “Beautiful lodge, with big terraces overlooking the river” (Namushasha River Lodge 6.0/6), “Eagles Nest, a dream” (Klein-Aus Vista Eagle’s Nest Chalets 6.0/6), “Stunning hotel, highly recommended” (The Delight Hotel Swakopmund 6.0/6), they are listed as some of the best rated accommodations of the year.
It is the first time that all the properties of the Gondwana group and their marketing partner, Klein-Aus Vista, have been awarded.
The seal of approval “Recommended on HolidayCheck” shows that the lodges enjoy many globetrotters’ great respect. The seal is considered an important indicator when individuals from German speaking countries are planning their holidays.
It is only awarded to lodges that received at least a 60% recommendation rate and at least 4 out of 6 points overall score, throughout the year. Nearly 60% of the guests at the Gondwana lodges originate from German speaking countries.
Currently the HolidayCheck portal offers more than 7.6 million written reviews (Stand 07/2017) and 8.8 million photos of more than 680,000 hotels worldwide.
The Namusheshe lodge is one Gondwana Lodges that got a positive review on the largest German portal, HolidayCheck that allows users to comment on travel destinations online.
