Remember, a Bed and Breakfast is someone’s home. Due to many misconceptions and recent confusion with more current options such as AirBnB, and rental options of an entire property, we feel it’s helpful to make it clear that this accommodation option is a private room in a shared home. Home build dates also vary, ranging from the 1950s to 2000s,providing a wide range of quality, decor, and configuration. Most B&Bs also have stairs with no luggage handling assistance.
Another thing to consider is that B&B’s are most likely located in the countryside and can be a rare find in city centers. Each property will be unique and each host may run their home differently than the next. A few things you might notice? Interior decor may be more quirky than what you might find in a hotel. The room sizes and layouts may be smaller in relation to the overall size of the home. Some B&Bs are purpose-built while others were later transformed into a working business. The ensuite bathrooms tend to be more compact and water pressure may not be comparable to US standards.
Are B&Bs the right choice for you?
