The B&B came up trumps in the B&B accommodation category in TripAdvisor’s latest Traveller’s Choice Best of the Best Hotels poll, which analyses Tripadvisor review data from over 1.5 million hotels across the globe.

Boasting eight en-suite rooms, the guesthouse prides itself on providing “all the comforts of home, with a warm and friendly atmosphere” with each room featuring a flat-screen television, fridge, hair dryer, ironing board, and complementary refreshment tray.

The B&B has an average 5.0 rating on TripAdvisor, with top marks for cleanliness, service and value.

It has 2,085 excellent reviews on the site, with guests raving about the “amazing food”, clean rooms, great atmosphere and little extras, including a singing chef.  

One customer wrote: ‘This B&bB is absolutely the cleanest have ever been in. All the facilities are modern yet still retain a lovely homely feeling. The hosts Angela and James are very welcoming, friendly and helpful.’

Another added: ‘Breakfast was fantastic with plenty of choices available. We opted for the full-cooked English which was huge and delicious, all freshly prepared by James who can be heard singing as he cooks from the kitchen.’

Owners of The Toulson Court Bed and Breakfast, James and Angela Rusden, said they were not expecting the news to be crowned World’s Best B&B for the third year running.

“We are truly amazed and delighted to win this award again. It’s fantastic not only for us but for the town of Scarborough and all its attractions,” they said.

Scarborough is popular among tourists and famed for being Britain’s original seaside resort.

The hotspot boasts picturesque beaches, rich local history and an almost endless number of family attractions.

Award-winning Toulson Court is a short walk from attractions like Peasholm Park, Scarborough Beach, Sea Life aquarium, and the historic Scarborough Castle.

The UK featured four times in the Top 10 B&Bs in the World for 2022.

Making their debut on the global list, Highcliffe House, Lynton, on the Exmoor coast, is in fourth place, while Gloucester House, Weymouth is sixth and Glencoe Guest House, Keswick, in the Lake District, takes up the tenth spot. 

On the UK list, Tourquay and Weymouth are the places to be for a top B&B experience, taking two top 10 places each in the UK’s Best B&Bs list. 

Outside of B&B accommodation, TripAdvisor also compiled a list of the world’s best hotels with Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, India being heralded as the best of the best.

Dubbed ‘The Jewel of Jaipur’, this 1835 palace-turned-luxurious hotel has over 5,000 five-bubble reviews and is beloved for its polo bar, historic suites and high tea.
