“Simply the best B and B in Scarborough”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Having stayed at Toulson Court on the annual pilgrimage to the Scarborough Cricket Festival for the last 15 years, I was surprised to see a less than glowing review, which stood out in contrast to all the positive ones. Had Jackie lost the plot? Had she changed her sausage supplier? Were cans of furniture polish not getting through to the Yorkshire coast?
Of course not. One rogue review does not make this little gem any less of a top quality B and B. Everyone is entitled to an opinion (some people, for example. find the Chuckle Brothers funny), but I and my travelling companions found everything reassuringly the same, with tea and biscuits on arrival, spotlessly clean rooms and fantastic breakfasts. Add the warmth of Jackie and Dean's hospitality and you have simply the best B and B in Scarborough., ,

Had stayed here previously for an excellent break to take in the Scarborough cricket festival but had read a negative review. This didn't put us off booking again but did make us question whether or not standards had deteriorated. I can confidently say that they hadn't! We were greeted as usual with tea and biscuits by our friendly hosts. The rooms were immaculately clean and equipped with all the accompaniments you could want from tea for local travellers to galaxy hot chocolate and ginger nuts for the more indulgent adventurous traveller. Breakfast is the show stopper of this establishment though - fruit and cereals readily available with tea and toast, jams and spreads. Then the moment when the full English arrives at the table tempts even those with the highest cholesterol. However, the calories are kept to a minimum as the food is excellently cooked and is far beyond the comment made by one confused traveller that suggested it was 'swimming in fat'. The only sign of fat and swimming during in this visit was on the beach! The quality of ingredients used was excellent. All locally sourced. The sausages have even won a gold award for the local butcher. I'm sure if you asked they could even tell you the name of the pig they came from! So overall another excellent stay. We will most certainly be returning again to be spoilt by our superb hosts jackie and dean.

We booked a five night stay at the Toulson Court on the back of Trip Advisor reviews and were delighted with the choice.

Jackie and Dean are a delightful couple who are happy to help and advise. Their property is spotlessly clean and only eight minutes walk from the seafront, five from Peasholm Park. There's parking out front which saves hassles but parking permits are available.

The rooms were beautifully decorated and clean and with TV/DVD, hairdryer, toiletries, drinks and biscuits. There was even a fan, appreciated on a hot evening, and plenty of storage space.

Breakfasts were great. Full English, toast, preserves, fresh fruit, cereals - really couldn't be faulted in portion or quality. The conservatory was pleasant to spend time and we really couldn't criticise any aspect of the place.

Fully deserves its reputation - top class - we will be back!!

Room Tip: They are all good...ones at front are on the road, however, if a light sleeper

It is comforting to know when going on holiday that the welcome will be warm, the rooms comfortable and clean and the breakfasts excellent. This is why my wife and I drove to Scarborough to The Toulson Court for our 4th stay at this superb Guest House. We were indeed greeted warmly in the car park by Dean and Jackie, our case was taken to our room and we were offered a cup of tea or coffee which we enjoyed. Our room looked great, the bed was comfortable, a bottle of water was ideal for the medication I have to take and all in all the standard was as excellent as we expected it to be. After an evening drink from the hospitality tray we had a good night's sleep before breakfast. A wide choice of cereals, fruits and yogurts followed by a cooked breakfast either the full English or any of the items to our preferences. Beautifully cooked and quickly served we were set for the day. We had a wonderful week both weather-wise and also the wonderful hospitality at The Toulson Court. Well done Jackie and Dean, see you again next year when we know it will be as good. It always is!!

This was an excellent stay with my husband and grandchildren.. Breakfast was an absolute delight. The sausage & bacon come from a farm just up the road and they are delicious. Every individual taste is catered for by the lovely landlady Jackie and her partner Dean. Cereals, fresh fruits, fresh orange juice. Croissants bought in specially for my grandson. Everything you could possibly wish for in your cooked breakfast. Lovely conservatory to relax in and a nice wee sitting area out the back in a little bit of shade. Easy parking which made such a difference. Great location, easy distance for north beach and a lovely park at the bottom of the road. Will definitely stay again if in the area

Room Tip: Downstairs king size room was very comfortable. Very nice en-suite too.. Only down side is that othe...
