Historic Village earns TripAdvisor accolade

The Historic Village on 17th Ave.

The Historic Village has been recognised with a TripAdvisor 2019 Certificate of Excellence based on the consistently positive reviews it has received on the world’s largest travel site.

The certificate is affirmation of the notable transformation the village has undergone over the past few years, including the restoration of a number of buildings and the introduction of legacy gardens.

Team Leader: The Historic Village, Blair Graham says it’s rewarding to know that visitors to the village are enjoying the experience and wanting to share it with others.

“Our objective is to create a thriving, well-used community destination. Receiving this acknowledgement by TripAdvisor is encouraging, as a lot of hard work has gone into making the village what it is today. We would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to write a review.”

Over the 2018/19 cruise season, The Historic Village was added to the Sights of the City Hop-on Hop-off bus tour for cruise ship passengers resulting in many positive experiences being shared online.

The village is also becoming a popular event space attracting events such as the 2018 Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival.

TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence is awarded once a year to hospitality businesses that consistently deliver great service, have been listed on the site for at least 12-months, have a minimum number of reviews and maintain a minimum four out of five rating.

The Historic Village is located on 17th Avenue, Tauranga. The grounds are open seven days a week and entry is free.

Such a shame

that the council allowed this gem to run down for so many years. The train has gone, the old tugboat has gone, the collections of things from yesteryear have all gone. Noel Nicholls must surely be turning in his grave. During the 1980’s lots of unemployed people got some work experience there as part of the government funded PEP scheme. I’m glad it’s being refurbished but it’ll never again be how it was back in the day.
