TripAdvisor says Britain 'has best B&Bs in world'

News Shopper: Britain 'has best B&Bs in world' Britain 'has best B&Bs in world'

BRITAIN has the best B&Bs on Earth, according to tourists worldwide, it has been revealed.

UK bed-and-breakfast establishments took the first three places in the world's best B&B table compiled by the TripAdvisor company from tourists' reviews.

The UK domination was clear with six English and two Scottish establishments in the top 10 B&B world table.

Number one for bed-and-breakfast accommodation was The Twenty One in Brighton, which climbed from sixth place last year to first this year.

Its proprietors Matt Fletcher and Andy Cole were described by TripAdvisor as "the perfect hosts", serving "superb breakfasts" and providing "comfy beds".

Last year's winner, the Old Manse in Invermoriston, Scotland, took second place this year, with the Riverside in Ambleside, Cumbria, third.

In a list of 25 top UK hotels, there were five Devon establishments in the top 12.

Top UK hotel this year was Charterhouse Hotel in Torquay, with visitors speaking of its "warm and genuine hospitality".

Second was Hillside Hotel in Ventnor, Isle of Wight, with Rudding Park Hotel in Harrogate, Yorkshire, third.

Not a single London hotel made it into the UK top 25 last year or the year before.

This year, three have managed it - The Milestone Hotel, Hotel 41 and Haymarket Hotel.

TripAdvisor spokeswoman Emma Shaw said: "These awards celebrate the best hotels in the UK and beyond according to those that really matter - travellers themselves.

"The UK performed extraordinarily well in the B&B category, laying claim to eight of the top 10, while Devon has yet again won over travellers with its impressive hotels."
