Should I stay in a Bed and Breakfast or a Hotel?
Being the owner of a Bed and Breakfast for over 17 years, let me give you some advice.
If you want to enjoy the comforts of home but the amenities of a hotel, choose a bed and breakfast.
If you enjoy talking with other guests but want privacy to enjoy your significant other, choose a bed and breakfast.
If you enjoy a delicious home cooked breakfast, afternoon treats, some wine or port, then choose a bed and breakfast.
If you respect other people’s homes and take care to avoid damaging their possesions, then choose a bed and breakfast.
If you have no respect for other people’s home, rules or belongings, then I strongly recommend you choose a hotel.
Some bed and breakfast guests have complained about rules…Like closing the door behind you, not dropping crumbs all over the reception room floor, having to order your breakfast the night before, or eating breakfast at a specified time.
For those guests who prefer to fly by the seat of your pants and stay in the nearest chain hotel, there are plenty around, so make sure you opt for that.
If you prefer to stay in a comfortable home with no bugs, because the front door is closed, and the crumbs are not left all over, With a warm made to order breakfast because you placed your order the evening before…then we certainly hope you choose to stay with us.
Most bed and breakfasts are run by one or two innkeepers who take great pride in their homes. We welcome our homes to travelers from all over the world and want you to enjoy our Inns. We love talking to you all but limit our conversations to as much as you want to speak with us. We love to talk to you about what our area offers and what to do and where to eat. We pride ourselves in clean and comfortable rooms with great food and warm hospitality.
So, are you ready to book your stay? We certainly hope so!
