Discover What Makes A Bed And Breakfast A Hit Amongst Holidaymakers
Also known as B&B, this establishment caters to travellers who are in need of overnight accommodation. They are also known as “self-catering” hostels as most offer breakfast (hence the name) but not other meals. But, enough with the lecture. Who would want to listen how the lodging property started so long as it provides comfortable beds for weary tourists, anyway?
But did you know that staying in a B&B provides a completely different experience? Once you try this type of lodging, chances are, you would not go back to hotels and motels ever again. Want to know why it is such a hit?
1. Nothing beats personalized service. From your morning's repast to the high possibility of being driven to town (as some owners throw this as an extra), expect an additional dose of friendliness at no added cost. Hosts stock on the essentials like medicines, coffee, beer, snacks, and wine that might be hard to come across as affordable in pricey accommodations.
2. Get lots of home-cooked goodness. Taste the speciality of the town you are visiting as some owners can cook it for you upon request. Be treated to your hosts' talent as they lavish you with freshly baked cookies (when they're fond of baking), personalized sweaters (for knitters), or their catch for the day (for fishermen).
3. B&Bs are budget-friendly. Both the hosts and the guests will benefit from the income generated. Bed and breakfast rates are lower than other lodging options, thus the traveller can save more while affording the owners an extra profit. While motels charge you per minute for long distance calls, some B&Bs offer this for free.
4. Some B&Bs are pet-friendly. On the rare instance that your pet tags along, some inns allow for them to stay with you, or offer to house them in a separate area for a special fee.
Hosts take pride in their houses and the quality of service they are able to offer you. Now you can finally call lodging a “home away from home”, and have a relaxing time in a cosy environment.
