Best Western Elyon Colombo, Sri Lanka’s first-ever Best Western Hotel, has once again been recognised for its exceptional hospitality. The hotel recently celebrated receiving the 2018 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award for another consecutive year.

As Sri Lanka’s first ever Best Western Hotel and part of the globally acclaimed hotel chain, Best Western Elyon Colombo had previously received this honour in 2015, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Previous awards include the TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Award 2015, TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award 2016 and 2017, Agoda Gold Circle Award 2015 and 2017, Booking.com Certificate of Excellence Award 2014 and Make My Trip Partners Award 2017.

The highly-coveted 2018 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence celebrates businesses that have consistently received outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year and continually delivered quality customer experience.

Best Western Elyon Colombo has 60 tastefully designed contemporary rooms, a range of modern facilities, including a stunning rooftop bar. Though being in operation for just four years, the Hotel has continuously raised the benchmark in providing authentic hospitality. 

To qualify for the Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews, and be listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.

Commenting on this significant achievement, Elyon Hotels Chairman Presantha Jayamaha said: “Being awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence consecutively is a remarkable feat and a true source of pride for the entire team. This award is a credit to all members of the Best Western Elyon Colombo team who strive to offer our guests the highest level of authentic Sri Lankan hospitality and exceed expectations.”

Over the years Best Western Elyon Colombo has been the proud recipient of several accolades and awards, reflecting the commitment of the hotel in setting standards for service excellence and the dedication of its employees in providing the ultimate guest experience.

Congratulating Best Western Elyon Colombo on this win, TripAdvisor Vice President of Industry Marketing Heather Leisman said, “TripAdvisor is excited to announce the recipients of the 2018 Certificate of Excellence, which celebrates businesses that have consistently received strong praise and ratings from travellers. This recognition allows us to publicly honour businesses that are actively engaging with customers and using feedback to help travellers identify and confidently book the perfect trip.”
