TWO NRMA PROPERTIES in the NSW and
ACT regions have made it onto the April
2016 Star Ratings ‘Gold List’, a compilation
of feedback on accommodation from real-
The Star Ratings Gold List represents
the crème de la crème from the Travellers’
Rating, which is a score out of 10 that
reflects the quality of the accommodation
according to past guests.
Developed by Star Ratings Australia
and ReviewPro Guest Intelligence, the
list covers six types of accommodation:
serviced apartments, self-catering,
motel, hotel, hosted accommodation,
and caravan holiday parks. These are
then evaluated geographically:
■ National – top 10 properties from all
categories across the country
■ State – top 10 properties from all
categories for each state
■ Capital cities – top 10 properties
from hotel, motel, serviced apartments
■ Regional – top 10 properties from all
categories in regional areas
The NRMA’s historic Hotel Kurrajong
made the Gold List for the best regional
hotel in the ACT, while the NRMA
Darlington Beach Resort near Coffs
Harbour was ranked among the top 10 best
caravan holiday parks in NSW.
Only businesses that open themselves
up to Star Ratings Australia’s independent
quality standards and achieve the highest
Travellers’ Rating scores are eligible for
the Gold List. Star Ratings provide guests
with the only national independent
assessment of accommodation standards
and are an important guide for consumers
when looking at the quality standards of
hotels, especially when searching online.
The Travellers’ Ratings aggregate
consumer ratings and reviews from more
than 100 websites and in 45 different
languages. The ReviewPro software used
has an algorithm that searches relevant
online travel agents, review sites and social
media sites to deliver real-time updates.

The NRMA Holiday Park
near Coffs Harbour made
the top 10 in NSW.
THE TARONGA ZOO CAR PARK in
Mosman offered more than parking
during March, with MotorServe
mechanics conducting free vehicle
health checks for NRMA Members and
Taronga Zoo Friends.
NRMA Director Wendy Machin says
some Members got a nasty surprise
when they stopped for a car check.
“ I believe some people were shocked
when given their vehicle’s health score
card, many not realising their child seat
was incorrectly installed or that their
tyre pressure was dangerously low. Our
mechanics were surprised to find there
was a handful of vehicles with tyre tread
below safe levels,” Ms Machin says.
More than 500 vehicles had a check-
up and more than 100 child restraints
were inspected for safe installation
during the four-week initiative.
MotorServe mechanics also checked
cars’ lights, tyre pressures and tread,
windscreen fluid levels, fan and belt
drives, batteries and alternators, and
