Quest Hotel Dubbo has been awarded the 2020 Travelers Choice Award on Tripadvisor, placing them within the top 10 per cent of the highest rated hotels worldwide.
Quest Hotel Dubbo manager Amrita Verma said this comes as a huge surprise and sense of accomplishment to the team.
"This is the first time we have been awarded the Travelers Choice Award," Mrs Verma said.
"The award is given each year to the hotels with the best ratings, reviews and saves made by travelers.
"It's a pat on the back for us, knowing that our hard work has paid off, and it's very exciting. Knowing that travelers choose to stay with us- that's a privilege.
"It's also enhanced the motivation of my team to keep working hard. It's a time in which we need motivation, it's been a harsh time, so this definitely is encouraging. It's also nice just to have that recognition."
Mrs Verma said the award is great for Dubbo, especially in times of COVID-19, as many businesses and other accommodations are wanting tourism to pick up in the city.
"It's a good thing for Dubbo," she said.
Mrs Verma said she believes the achievement is a result of the hotels recent renovation.
"We have also been prioritising COVID-19 safety measures for our guests," she said.
