Bridlington’s MP Sir Greg Knight is backing a Parliamentary motion highlighting the role B&Bs, guest houses and small family run hotels play in our tourism economy and drawing attention to National B&B week which runs from 18th-24th March.

The motion emphasises that B&Bs and small hotels form the backbone of UK holiday accommodation and play a key role in supporting local livelihoods.

Sir Greg said: “In tourist areas like Bridlington it is important that we have a range of accommodation available to holiday makers from hotels, to serviced apartments to B&Bs. I am pleased that visitors to our area are almost spoilt for choice with over 100 small hotels and B&Bs on offer. Bridlington is certainly open for business when it comes to tourism.
He added: “The wider tourism economy in East Yorkshire benefits from the good quality accommodation we have on offer.”

Sir Greg also urged people to book their holiday or break with small local hotels and B&Bs as they are great value for money.
