  • Bed and Breakfast Tips

    Bed and Breakfast accommodation is a pleasant and personal alternative to staying in a Hotel or Motel. Whereas choosing a Hotel or Motel, may be easier and can be done at the drop of a hat, a Bed and Breakfast establishment needs more deliberation, as there are so many individual choices.

    The best part about staying at a Bed and Breakfast, is usually the full menu of breakfast items that are served with a rosy smile; something that hotels find hard to compete with. But as already said, it is not easy to choose at all. So we present you with some tips which can help you effectively to choose bed and breakfast of your choice

    Consider location: Proximity to the "center of action" is often a plus for many travelers; however, it sometimes comes with a drawback: noise. An inn stay is also highlighted by walking accessibility to nearby shops, restaurants, and watering holes.

    Decide whether to stay at an inn or cottage: The cottage may give you a tad more privacy than an inn which may contain up to 10 different rooms. There's no need to have another noisy guest keep you up all night if you have a cottage as an option.

    Decor: It is usually the best way to determine whether it is worth staying at a particular Bed and Breakfast or not. These days, one can easily log on to the internet and take a virtual tour of all the bed rooms and amenities available.

    • The quality of the furniture, sheets, bathroom, and room should be high on your checklist. Make sure the inn owner keeps strict tabs on the decor of the inn, as it will make your stay much more pleasant.
    • Many Bed and Breakfast businesses are small and are usually run by a retired, Husband and Wife! These are the best! If you see the names of your proprietors, proudly displayed on a Bed and Breakfast web-site, you will be sure, to be in good hands!
    • Larger Bed and Breakfast businesses, tend to lose their personal touch, so in those cases, it is sometimes better to just stay in a Hotel and go for the convenience of location and save time and a little bit of money.
    • Talk to the proprietors, who represent their business well, then you will not hesitate with the booking. Also, establishing a connection with one's future Landlord or Landlady, during the booking process, really peppers the arrival experience with warmth and fuzziness!

  • Usually, King and Queen Beds are at the top of the attraction list, followed by romantic wall hanging, thematic upholstery and stylish antique furniture. Sometimes, it is worth going out of one's way, if one comes across a Bed and Breakfast establishment, which is to die for!

    Use the power of the internet, and search engines, to perform your overall research.
