Powered by millions of past guest reviews from hundreds of websites around the world, the inaugural Star Ratings Gold List of Australian accommodation is the ultimate holiday form guide.

The Star Ratings Gold List celebrates only those properties who continue to voluntarily hold themselves to independent quality standards and who almost always exceed their guests' expectations.

The Ranges Karratha was recognised as one of the States best in the Serviced apartment's category in the Gold List for both North West Australia and Western Australia overall.

The inaugural Star Ratings Gold List of Australian accommodation showcases the best hotels, motels, serviced apartments, self catering, hosted accommodation and caravan-holiday parks around the country.

Powered by ReviewPro, a global leader in the provision of guest intelligence solutions, the Star Ratings Gold List is based on aggregated guest reviews from more than 100 websites in 45 different languages.

The Ranges Karratha was selected as one of North West Australia and Western Australia’s best Serviced Apartments operators.  The Ranges General Manager Barry Harrison said” The Ranges Karratha was the only property outside of Broome in Australia’s North West to make the top 10 list as well as the top 10 properties across Western Australia.

“The rules are pretty simple,” said Mr Harrison “We are assessed for an official Star Rating against independent quality standards and we have more than 25 online reviews across all of the major travel websites.”

According to Star Ratings Australia, travellers plan their holidays carefully and visit between 20-40 websites before they book. That’s why the Star Ratings Gold List is unique because it draws online reviews from multiple sites, not just one.

“From the opinions of those who have actually stayed at our property to more than 200 criteria that are used to determine an official Star Rating; our future guests can trust that we will do everything we can to exceed their expectations,” said The Ranges General Manager Barry Harrison.
