Certificate of Excellence earned every year for the past five years Johannesburg, South Africa – 29 May 2019 – The Lindfield Victorian House Museum, a niche-museum in Auckland Park, Johannesburg, today announced that it has received the TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award for 2019.

In so doing, the museum also qualified for the Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame entry is only awarded to those who received the Certificate of Excellence every year for five years. The award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given to establishments that consistently achieve great traveller reviews on TripAdvisor.

To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five and have a minimum number of reviews. “Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2019 is a tremendous honour for the museum.

The museum would of course, not have been able to achieve this without our visitors who took the time to review us on TripAdvisor,” said Katharine Love, owner and curator of the museum.

“Earning the Hall of Fame accolade is doubly satisfying. We strive to give visitors a very unique and private look at a Victorian household in the suburbs. Our guided social-history tours allow our visitors to travel back in time and come face-to-face with an altogether more elegant era. These TripAdvisor awards confirms that our visitors love the experience.”

Leon Erasmus, an associate of the museum, added that these awards are especially meaningful as the museum receives no government funding, support or rebates whatsoever, despite being recognized as a top performing speciality museum on the world’s largest travel site and despite being commended by the National Trust in the UK as well as the Victorian Society in London.

"TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional businesses that have received consistent praise and recognition by travelers on the site,” said Marc Charron President, TripAdvisor for Business. “By putting a spotlight on businesses that are focused on delivering great service to customers, TripAdvisor not only helps drive increasing hospitality standards around the world, it also gives businesses both large and small the ability to shine and stand out from the competition.” Lindfield Victorian House Museum
