It has a five-star rating on TripAdvisor with over 2,000 “Excellent” reviews.

Commenting on TripAdvisor’s recent announcement, James told The Press: “This is absolutely fantastic news.”

The co-owner attributed the success to what he and his wife offer their customers.

At £95 a night for a double, he said: “We’ve tried to convey that – we’re just your ordinary, everyday bed and breakfast.” We’re not the Ritz or the Savoy.

“If anyone comes to Scarborough they think it’s great for the money we’re offering.”

In some cases, hosts have gone to great lengths to help customers.

As an example, James gave a situation where a customer was driving from Scarborough to York and had a car accident on the way.

The co-owner said he shut down the tool and came to their aid.

“It’s about helping people,” he said.

“I have a car. I know the area. I can fix you.”

Another reason was simpler: the food.

“We do a fantastic cooked breakfast,” he said.
