The world’s best B&Bs have been revealed by Tripadvisor this week – and the UK has proven triumphant with FOUR hotels making the top 10.
In fact, The Toulson Court in Scarborough has been crowned the world’s best B&B in the Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for 2022, holding on to its title from last year’s rankings.
Run by couple Angela and James, the hotel boasts eight individually decorated bedrooms with shower rooms, not to mention it’s praised by visitors for the hearty breakfast served up in the mornings.
It’s also close to the seaside town’s Peasholm Park, and a short walk from Scarborough Beach.
One reviewer wrote: “We visit every year and have had another fabulous stay at Toulson Court. Just when you think it can’t get any better, Angela and James make even more improvements to the room.

“This fabulous B&B was voted best in the world for a reason and I can’t imagine ever wanting to stay anywhere else when visiting Scarborough. The excellent location, great room facilities, free parking, amazing breakfast, cleanliness of the room etc. etc. are all great but nothing compared to how welcome you are made to feel. Will definitely be visiting again soon.”

The Toulson Court wasn’t the only UK B&B to impress in the awards, which determined winners based on both the quality and quantity of reviews in 2021.
In fact, three other UK hotels have been hailed as the creme-de-la-creme for B&Bs; two in Devon and one in the Cotswolds.
The 25 Boutique B&B in Torquay took the fifth spot in the global rankings, having been praised by reviewers for being “100% perfect”, an “amazing stay” and an “outstanding gem”.
Meanwhile The Elmdene, also in Torquay, took the eighth spot, with hosts Kim and Trevor often being given a shout out in reviews for their warm and friendly welcome.
It’s not all about the seaside though. For those planning to head to the countryside instead, Coombe House in the Cotswolds is worth having on your radar, having been named the seventh best B&B in the world.
