Four of the world’s top five B&B are in the UK

The 25 Boutique luxury B&B in Torquay has won the accolade of World’s Best B&B in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards.

Four of the to five B&Bs and inns are located in the UK and include Bindon Bottom B&B in West Lulworth, The Grange Bed & Breakfast in Fylingthorpe and Swallows Nest Bed & Breakfast in Brigstock.

The first prize winner The 25 is a six-bedroom five-star property, a profile of which featured in Luxury Bed & Breakfast magazine in June 2018 when it was formally recognised as the best B&B in the UK.

Owners Andy and Julian Banner-Price said they were both “thrilled” to win the award for world’s best B&B.

The bedrooms feature cutting-edge design technology, including voice-control for the air conditioning, lighting and televisions.

Bed & Breakfast Association chairman David Weston told Luxury Bed & Breakfast magazine: “We are thrilled that our members Andy and Julian Banner-Price of The 25 Boutique B&B have been crowned “Best B&B in the World” in the 2019 TripAdvisor Awards just announced. Congratulations to them on their well-deserved success!

“We are also delighted to see that four of the World’s top five (and five of the top 10) are British – and especially proud that two of those top four are B&B Association members!

“These outstanding results – based on millions of reviews from guests worldwide – again show that Britain’s brilliant B&Bs are world-beating in their individuality, warmth of welcome, local knowledge, and home-cooked breakfasts. Well done all!”
