Top UK local business review sites you need to be on

Explore essential UK business review sites for maximising your online presence and reputation.

Whether you’re purchasing goods, scheduling a trip, looking for the best service, or planning anything else, the internet usually holds the answer.

Business review sites aren’t something new. They’ve been around for decades but today their importance is higher than ever. In just a few minutes, you can gather information about all your future plans and pick the best option based on feedback left by other people. If you want to find out more about a company your best bet would be to visit a review site. 

These platforms offer newfound transparency that does wonders for both the clients and the business itself, as it allows them to communicate directly. Thanks to reviews the business can improve its practices and users can make the right choice. Today we’ll have a look at the top business review sites in the UK in 2022. 

If you’re the owner of a local business, online reviews might be one of the first impressions your future customers get. That’s why it’s important to follow the digital profile of your business on all platforms and make sure you get a majority of positive reviews. This will not only boost the image of your brand but also increase your conversion rates in an organic manner without the need to spend anything extra on a marketing campaign. Online reviews are also a great way to improve your local SEO, which will improve the visibility of your business on Google.

Whether you’re a user looking for the best information on a business or a local business that’s trying to expand its reach, you’ll most likely find these websites useful.


Whether we like it or not, almost 3 billion people around the world are using Facebook. Hundreds of thousands of businesses are also found on the social platform and that’s good news for everyone. Users can get more information about a business and businesses get exposure to billions of potential customers. Checking the Facebook page (if there’s one) of any business you’re planning to buy from is always a good idea.


Trustpilot is one of the most popular review websites out there and for good reason. It serves as a jack of all trades, covering a variety of business categories. You’ll find anything from banks and car dealerships to clothing stores and furniture. The site has improvised a lot over the years and if you don’t need a specialised platform, it’s often your best bet.


If you plan on buying pretty much any product, chances are it already has a review on Amazon. The e-commerce giant has a vast library of products and even more customer reviews. With a system to filter out fake reviews, Amazon is among the top business review sites where you can find anything from detailed comments to photos and even videos.


Whether you’re planning a trip or you just want to have a look at the local attractions, Tripadvisor has it all. The site is entirely dedicated to everything traveling and has listings of local attractions, restaurants, hotels, deals and more. On Tripadvisor, you can easily find user stories and city guides, and choose the exact activity you’re interested in.


If Tripadvisor isn’t your thing and you want to directly book a place to stay, then have a look at Booking. The website has every holiday rental you can think of and allows you to search based on different criteria. Hotels and other businesses on Booking can be directly booked through the website, making the whole experience seamless and intuitive. Oh, you’ll also find plenty of reviews that’ll give you a good idea about the service, allowing you to hit the sweet spot between quality and value for money.


If technology is what interests you, then look no further than Techradar. The website is among the top places for tech enthusiasts of all levels, giving users a comprehensive guide to both hardware components and software programs. Within Techradar you can find numerous lists that provide users with the best gadgets based on their budget. Looking for a review on that brand-new GPU that just got released? Techradar probably has it.


If you’re planning to buy a new home or looking for a new place to rent, HomeViews usually has the answer. HomeViews is the only dedicated review website in the UK for new build homes. The best part of it is that all the feedback has been specifically selected from residents that actually live there, giving you detailed reviews that you can’t get anywhere else. HomeViews combines extensive guides with the best locations, giving users the complete experience.

Google Reviews

Last but not least, it’s the elephant in the room. With Google becoming a global monopoly of search engines, we’ve seen the rise of Google Reviews, a place where users can freely share their opinions directly on the profile of the business. Google Reviews are easily accessible but only businesses that have set up a Google Business Profile will be visible. Since there are no special requirements to post reviews, users should be on the lookout for fake ones. Aside from that, it’s still one of the go-to sources of information for any business on it.

The amount of information on the web is immeasurable and review websites help us navigate the space by streamlining the data. With free access to feedback left by other users, you can make the best choice before you’ve even purchased anything.
