eviivo is proud to present the winners and finalists
of the eviivo Gold and Friendliest Awards 2011


These two prestigious awards were launched last year to recognise and reward the excellence of small, independent accommodation businesses throughout the UK.

The eviivo Gold Award and the eviivo Friendliest Award are based on the reviews from genuine guests who have stayed in the featured accommodation. All properties using eviivo frontdesk® are eligible for these awards - all is needed is a minimum of 10 guest reviews received during the year and the rest is down to the feedback and opinion published by the guests.
