TripAdvisor promises response to red badge complaint TripAdvisor’s ongoing spats with the hotel industry took another turn this week with assurances from the review giant that it will respond to a complaint from Kwikchex. The reputation management specialist is acting on behalf of the Riverside Hotel, Evesham, which had a red badge applied to its listing more than a month ago. The hotel’s owner has repeatedly said the red badge was applied unfairly while TripAdvisor says it red-flagged the property after an investigation over fraudulent reviews. Kwikchex wrote to TripAdvisor a week ago asking for: ‘disclosure of the information that TripAdvisor relies on to substantiate the allegation they have made.’ Kwikchex, which gave the reviews giant seven days to respond, says its actions are part of the correct process to give the company the opportunity to resolve the situation or limit the damage.

Korea Korea (Korean: 한국; Hanja: 韓國), pronounced as Hanguk in South Korean and Chosŏn in North Korean, is an East Asian territory that is divided into two distinct sovereign states, North Korea and South Korea. Located on the Korean Peninsula, Korea is bordered by China to the northwest and Russia to the northeast. It is separated from Japan to the east by the Korea Strait and the Sea of Japan (East Sea); it is separated from Taiwan to the south by the East China Sea.
