The Clay Studio is Awarded TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence 2016

26 May 2016

At The Clay Studio we have always sought to provide a great place to relax with an unrivalled choice of pieces to paint, friendly and helpful customer service, a great range of food and drink and an overall relaxing experience for adults and families. We are therefore very pleased that this has been recognised with our second Certificate of Excellence from the worldwide ratings Web site TripAdvisor.

Customers who have rated The Clay Studio on TripAdvisor have mentioned many aspects including the friendly and attentive service from staff, the quality of the food and drink available, the tremendous range of pottery and paint choices, the separate and distinct seating areas and ongoing encouragement to achieve great painting results. Overall, the calm atmosphere and lack of pressure are seen as helping customers relax and destress, particularly after a hard day at work or looking after children.

Martin Payne, Marketing Director of The Clay Studio, noted how vital ratings systems are in moving the business forwards:

“TripAdvisor reviews are very important as all feedback makes an invaluable contribution to the development of The Clay Studio. Furthermore, for those planning a visit it helps to understand more about The Clay Studio and why we are different to other pottery painting studios and cafés. This Certificate could not have been achieved without the contribution of our excellent staff and customers.”

The Clay Studio is a contemporary pottery painting studio. We have a wide range of blank pottery pieces for painting which are fired and usually ready for collection within four days. The Clay Studio is ideal for parties such as hen parties, birthday parties or just the opportunity to get together and relax with friends and family. The Clay Studio is a licensed café with a varied menu that is locally sourced wherever possible.

Now in its sixth year, the achievement celebrates hospitality businesses that have earned great traveller reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year. Certificate of Excellence recipients include accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a quality customer experience. 

"With the Certificate of Excellence, TripAdvisor honours hospitality businesses that have consistently received strong praise and ratings from travellers”, said Heather Leisman, Vice President of Industry Marketing, TripAdvisor. “This recognition helps travellers identify and book properties that regularly deliver great service. TripAdvisor is proud to play this integral role in helping travellers feel more confident in their booking decisions.”

The Certificate of Excellence accounts for the quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by travellers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. 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.
