The 2020 Travellers’ Choice Awards run by TripAdvisor, analyses both the quantity and quality of millions of reviews and ratings to determine the winner – this year analysing reviews pre-pandemic.

The Banner-Price pair, who previously owned a country house hotel in Wales for seven years, opened the B&B in 2017 after two years of renovation work.

They have won a number of awards since it opened, such as Gold for the Best B&B in Devon in 2017 and Silver for the Best B&B in England in 2018.

Andy said: “It’s an incredible feeling to be named the best B&B in the world for the second year running.

“If anything, the second time feels even more special because we know last year’s award raised customer expectations and so we’ve had to work even harder to deliver a great experience for every single one of our guests.

“We didn’t rest on our laurels, we’ve tried to look at every little thing we can do to improve, and it feels like that effort has really paid off with this news today.”.
