Local operators earn 2019 Tripadvisor Certificates of Excellence
Posted on June 5th, 2019
Local operators, Fisherman’s Beach Holiday Park and Sail Inn have received TripAdvisor® Certificates of Excellence. Now in its ninth year, the achievement celebrates businesses that are consistently excellent – having earned great traveller reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year. Congratulations to these operators and all our operators who represent the region so well.
Since 2011, the Certificate of Excellence honors hospitality businesses that deliver consistently great service across the world. This designation is presented to the top 10% of total businesses on TripAdvisor that have consistently achieved great reviews over the past year. Certificate of Excellence recipients include accommodations, restaurants and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a quality customer experience.
Bob and Lisa Lilleboe became the owners of the Sail Inn in November 2016 and since then the business has continued to grow. Their son, Pat Lilleboe has been managing the motel and was selected for the 2018 Queensland Tourism Industry Council’s Young Professionals Mentoring Program and was an Emerging Leader of the Year Finalist in the 2017 Australian Leadership Excellence Awards. Pat Lilleboe and the team at the Sail Inn have accomplished a lot in the couple years they have run the motel. This year has seen them acknowledge by Queensland.com and Australia.com as a Best of Queensland Experience and are currently ranking number 1 on TripAdvisor for Hotels in Yeppoon. Not to mention their great success at the inaugural Capricorn Coast Business Awards held last week. Out of 800 nominations for the awards Sail Inn was the only finalist representing the accommodation industry in Yeppoon. This little motel on the main street beat out all the beachfront accommodation in Yeppoon for a finalist spot at the awards.
Fisherman’s Beach Holiday Park is a hidden gem, located right on the beach in the picturesque village of Emu Park. Only a short stroll from cafes, IGA supermarket, heated public pool, playground and more, they offer all your caravan, camping and accommodation needs on the doorstep of the Keppel Bay Islands and Capricorn Coast. When visiting Yeppoon, Rockhampton or on your way to Great Keppel Island, this is a great family park that is really big on customer service.
The Certificate of Excellence accounts for the quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by travellers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
