This survey is based on gathering data from millions of guest reviews, and translating them to an official Recognition of Excellence.

• At the time of judging, a winner is rated 9.0/10 or over with a minimum of 50 customer reviews certified by HotelsCombined.

“Hillgrove Hotel Leisure & Spa are delighted to have been awarded the HotelsCombined award, says Sharon McMahon Sales & Marketing.  “This award goes to our absolutely amazing staff, for their continuous hard work and loyalty.  The majority of our reviews and our Guest comment cards, praise our staff for being some of the friendliest and most efficient they have ever met, and we agree. We are so lucky to have them and our loyal customers too. Thanks everyone

“We are thrilled to be working with the best hotels in the Ireland and Hillgrove Hotel Leisure & Spa is certainly among them” said Paulina Krolikowska, market manager of HotelsCombined Ireland “What is different about the Recognition of Excellence is the way information is gathered and analysed: it all depends on the guest and his or her experience with that particular accommodation.”
