A Canadian hotel has been selected among the world's best-value hotels at the 2020 TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Awards.
TripAdvisor has published its Travellers' Choice Best of the Best Awards for 2020, ranking the world's best establishments, and Italy, Spain, and Mexico offer the most enviable bargains.
Here in Canada, the lone accommodation on the bargain list is located in Halifax. The Comfort Hotel Bayer's Lake was the 2015 Canadian Hotel of the Year by Choice Hotels Canada and Halifax’s #1 rated hotel on Trip Advisor. Located a short drive from many of Nova Scotia’s premier tourist destinations, guests may easily visit Peggy’s Cove, Mahone Bay, Lunenberg, Exhibition Park, Granite Springs Golf Course and the Chain Of Lakes Trail.
Head to Ischia, off the coast of Naples, to find the hotel offering the best quality for its price, according to the TripAdvisor community. Situated on the island of Ischia, Capri's lesser-known neighbour, the Villa Serena Hotel has snagged first place in the "best bargain" category.
The Rural Arpa de Hierba Hotel on the Spanish Basque coast ranks second, followed by Mexico's Cabo Vista Hotel in Cabo San Lucas.
Italy boasts another representative on the list with the Lido Hotel in Cattolica, Rimini province at number 11, while Greece also has two.
Two Asian hotels shine in the overall rankings: Viroth's Hotel, in Siem Reap in Cambodia, was designated the best hotel in the world, just ahead of the La Siesta Hotel & Spa in Hanoi, Vietnam.
"This has been a tough year for our industry, but the global desire to go and explore, whether the destination is an hour away or across the world, remains strong. We're passionate about guiding travelers to the good out there, especially the good found within these recognized hotels, restaurants and airlines that rise to the occasion in offering the best of the best," said Lindsay Nelson, chief experience and brand officer at Tripadvisor.
"The Travelers' Choice program is one way that travelers and diners can benefit from the real-life experiences of other people so they can plan their perfect trip that meets their needs, budget and style.
