Scout's Place Hotel in Tripadvisor Hall of Fame

The Daily Herald writes that Scout’s Place Hotel in Windwardside has been inducted in Tripadvisor’s Hall of Fame. The travel website honours hotels with a place on this list when a Certificate of Excellence is received for five consecutive years.

Scout’s Place owners Barbara and Wolfgang Tooten told The Daily Herald the commitment of their staff of the hotel and restaurant is the key factor of the continuous success of the business. The Tootens called the induction “a true source of pride” for Scout’s Place team. They thanked all guests who wrote reviews on TripAdvisor. “There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one’s customers … the accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence to our business and our continued commitment to excellence.”

    We’ve stayed at Scout’s Place several times and this honor comes as no surprise. Wolfgang, Barbara, and the entire staff are always smiling and doing their best to ensure that all guests have a great experience. Looking forward to our next visit later this year.

  3. Thank you Sue & Marvin. We are very proud that we got honored by TripAdvisor and that we have received so many great reviews from our customers over the years. It makes it all worth it. At this point we would like to thank all of our hard working employees for their dedication and commitment. They really make Scout’s a unique place and we are very happy that we can combine business and fun on this beautiful island where some many nice and friendly people live. Saba is truly a special place and it’s nice to see that visitors to the island enjoy themselves and get the service they deserve.
