Sam Kendall’s, on Broad Street in downtown Camden, recently announced it has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. Now in its fifth year, the award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. Certificate of Excellence winners include accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a superior customer experience. 

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees which takes into account the quality, quantity and recency of reviews and opinions submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor during a 12-month period, as well as the business’ tenure and ranking on the site’s Popularity Index. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.

“Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a true source of pride for the entire team at Sam Kendall’s and we’d like to thank all of our past guests who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor,” owner and general manager Jonathan Bazinet said. “There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one’s customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence to our business and our continued commitment to excellence. We’ve now been recognized three years in a row. Our entire team works diligently, day in and day out to provide a world class experience. We recently expanded our hours to include lunch and we are open daily Monday through Saturday at 11:30 am. Outdoor dining is also available, weather permitting. Again I’d like to thank everyone who has had a hand in our success.”

“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses that have received consistent praise and recognition by travelers on the site,” Marc Charron, Trip Advisor’s president for business. “By putting a spotlight on businesses that are focused on delivering great service to customers, TripAdvisor not only helps drive increasing hospitality standards around the world, it also gives businesses both large and small the ability to shine and stand out from the competition.”
