    We stayed for 2 nights at the weekend with our grandkids (age 8 &4) in room 8 and had a lovely time. The entire place was immaculate, food delicious and hosts so friendly and brilliant with the kids. When we return to Scarborough we will only be staying here.

    Over the years we have had some first class holidays I.E CRUISE HOLIDAYS ( 25 ) ,the reason was for there" first class attention" you received through out your stay on board and we thought they could not be matched ,Well that was not until we found Toulson court while looking for my birthday day break which was for the7th may ,so we booked 2 nights stay on reading the reviews. "WOW "When we arrived we were met at the door by Angela and greeted us as if we were family and not just first time guest ,once we unloaded we were shown to our room ,which was upgraded to RM 1/ GF and not what we had book, This room was fit for a king tripled glazed and everything you needed , but at breakfast came the supprise , the table was laid out for my birthday complete with Birthday banner, card, a present and a crown for king of the day plus flags followed by the breakfast out of this world ,the choice was a match for any cruse ship , plus the lemon curd is a must on toast, this is made by James who is the chef ,also know as the singing chef because that is what he doe's while he cooks the breakfast and if you want a request, just ask. In all putting this review in print just give's you what Angela and James will do to go that mile and half to make your stay ,and there are a lot of suprises that they do just make you feel part of the family and not just guests,atToulson court which is well above 5* in fact if it was a cruse ship it would be on the level of any the" Silver Seas line" Angela and James thank you for a grrrrrrreat birthday break , good luck with best B&B in the world awards , looking forward to our next break in May 2025. and just for the record if want to stay at this jewel of scarborough you need to book early. Thaks again Regards Margaret & Anthony jackson.
