Auckland's Hotel Britomart has been named the best hotel in the country this year, with hotels in Nelson, Wellington and Napier also making the top five.

That's according to the 2023 Travelers' Awards from Tripadvisor, which applies an editorial process to review data from its users taken during the calendar year of 2022.

As for the best hotel in the world, that has been named as Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, India, with hotels in the Maldives, Brazil, the UK and Hong Kong rounding out the international top five.

The Hotel Britomart topped Aotearoa's list after earning praise for its "distinctive architecture, thoughtful attention to detail and exceptional service", according to Tripadvisor.

"Our dedicated team at The Hotel Britomart is delighted by this recognition," said the hotel's general manager, Clinton Farley.

"This accolade confirms that our efforts to create unique and exceptional experiences are being enthusiastically received, and further strengthens our commitment to delivering true New Zealand hospitality at its best."
