Newmark celebrates with two properties in South Africa’s top 10 hotels

TripAdvisor has just released its list of Top 25 Hotels in South Africa, of which two of Newmark’s five star hotels are ranked in the top 10 – the Queen Victoria Hotel in the iconic V&A Waterfront, Cape Town at number 5 as well the Drostdy Hotel in the historic town of Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape at number 8.

Managing Director of Newmark Hotels, Reserves & Lodges, Neil Markovitz says that TripAdvisor’s Travellers’ Choice Awards are a true reflection of what our guests experience at our properties. “We are delighted to have two hotels not only in the top 25 but also in the top 10 as this reaffirms Newmark’s drive for excellence.
