Tripadvisor reviews reach half a billion – and counting

TripAdvisor this week announced that it now has more than 500 million reviews and opinions on its website, and receives 290 pieces of user-generated content every minute of every day.

And coming out on top of the list in Australia for number of reviews, is a hotel in Sydney.

The Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney has received more than 7,500 traveller reviews. And when it comes to attractions, the Sydney Harbour came out on top as the most reviewed tourist attraction; while the Chin Chin was the most reviewed restaurant.

The travel planning and booking site and app receives 290 pieces of content every minute of every day. The growth in user-generated content has been fuelled by travellers’ desire to “pay it forward” with real-time insights and advice for millions of other global users so they can make great decisions at every step of their travel planning process.

Arpad Romandy is the General Manager of Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney, and said the reviews that the Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney receive on TripAdvisor are of high importance to their business.

He said the reviews enable the hotel to measure trends, and are a great tool to motivate staff.

“There is nothing better than having our team members acknowledged for their excellent service.  We are extremely proud to be the hotel with the highest number of reviews in Australia, as they empower the public to make informed decisions when deciding where to stay during their travels to Sydney.”

Destination NSW, CEO Sandra Chipchase said, “TripAdvisor travellers are fully engaged visitors and their insights, reviews and tips help visitors and attraction owners to constantly improve their tourism experience. We are proud of our beautiful harbour and encourage visitors to enjoy the multitude of other great attractions Australia’s global city has to offer.”
