Central Ohio’s Own Welsh Hills Inn Wins 2017 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Award for Hotels Fifth Straight Year
Granville, OH, January 27, 2017 --(PR.com)-- The Welsh Hills Inn has been named the #2 highest rated Bed & Breakfast/Inn in the U.S., and #4 in the world, by the 2017 TripAdvisor® Travelers’ Choice Awards, proud owners Bobbi and Jeff Noe announced today.

“We are thrilled and honored to be named again alongside such an amazing group of properties as one of the top B&B/Inns in the country and the world,” said Jeff Noe, co-owner. “TripAdvisor has been an incredible partner for our little inn since we opened our doors in 2010. The Inn has been a dream of ours since being bitten by the B&B bug as a young couple. We have met such wonderful people over the last 6-1/2 years; many of which are now special friends who we look forward to seeing again and again. The TripAdvisor award is that much more meaningful knowing it is based on the reviews and opinions of our guests. We thank them all from the bottom of our hearts!”

They have been in TripAdvisor’s Top 10 for the past five years, including being named #1 in the U.S. and #5 in the world in 2015. Welsh Hills Inn has won TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence every year since 2011, only months after opening, and has received their GreenLeaders Award for their environmental practices as well. In both 2013 and 2015, they were awarded the Ohio Hotel and Lodging Association’s B&B/Inn of the Year and, in 2016, they received the Explore Licking County Impact Award as the Lodging Partner of the Year.

“For the past 15 years, TripAdvisor has relied on the experiences and opinions of our travel community that has explored thousands of hotels around the world to determine these celebrated awards,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “Travelers planning their trips for 2017 can find inspiration for some of the best places to book from this diverse group of outstanding accommodations around the globe.”

For 15 years, the Traveler’s Choice Awards have recognized the world’s top properties based on millions of reviews and opinions collected in a single year from travelers around the globe. Winners are named in the categories of Top Hotels, Bargain, B&Bs and Inns, Family, Luxury, Romance, Service and Small Hotels. The hallmarks of Travelers’ Choice winners are remarkable service, quality and value.
