Hotelier posts fake reviews

JAMES ADAMS

 

A SCOTS hotelier has been artificially boosting his establishment's ratings by making up reviews and posting them online, it emerged last night.

 

David Bremner, owner of the Drumnadrochit Hotel by the banks of Loch Ness, was reported to have admitted writing glowing accounts from non-existent guests on the TripAdvisor website for travel information.

 

Bremner wrote: "My parents stayed many years ago and said what a lovely spot this place was. They were so right!"

 

Another fake recommendation stated: "Well done to the staff, who were really charming ... The food is outstanding ... Believe me you'll love it."

 

Bremner was reported to have admitted the ploy but was apparently unrepentant. He is reported to have said: "Maybe I shouldn't have done it. But I don't think it's that big a deal."

 

However, Bremner's motive for posting the reviews could be explained by genuine assessments of his establishment, which included complaints of high prices and shabby rooms.

 

TripAdvisor.com has more than 20 million visitors a month and, while people must register before posting reviews, only site moderators are there to catch self-aggrandising postings.

That sucks! I know a lot of people trust TripAdvisor. But I will say that when I check it often go directly to the bad reviews to see what they say or if they seem be3lievable. I'm sure if people are writing good reviews about their own places they're also writing negative reviews about their competition. Yuck!

It's such a shame that people like that jeopardize the integrity of a website that so many people depend on. Again, just proves you can't always believe everything you read!

Not only that, but he likely lost business by doing what he did. I am guessing that most everyone who found out about this now won't stay at that hotel, just for this reason. Not smart!

You know that really sucks! Chances are the hotel was nice, but now many will never know due to his dishonesty. I myself wouldn't support this establishment. Thumbs down to him.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
