The Differences Between a Bed and Breakfast and a Hotel

Woman with her hotel breakfastWhen planning a holiday vacation, you have numerous things to think about and one of that is your accommodation. Accommodation options can be as diverse as the travellers. Whether you are going on a business trip or a family vacation, you have the following choices: hotels, motels, inns, or bed and breakfast (B&B), among others.

B&Bs have become popular in recent years, especially for individuals looking for a cosy home-like accommodation. Here are the main differences between a B&B and a hotel.

What a bed and breakfast can offer you that a hotel cannot

Most hotels are part of franchises, so they can sometimes lack the personal touch. In 90% of cases, you will never get to meet or even speak with the owner of the hotel. Upscale hotels offer various dining options, rooms, concierge services and room service.

A B&B, on the other hand, like the Bailbrook Lodge in Bath, offers a more personal approach. You usually have a choice of a few rooms in a home-like setting. You will have your own bathroom and breakfast is a part of the package, as the name suggests. Breakfast may be served as a basic menu or buffet style, depending on the guest house and the owner.

Your personal preference

Staying at a bed and breakfast lets you socialise with others. There is usually a dedicated room, such as a TV room, where guests can chat and get to know each other better. Hotels have many staff members taking care of various aspects. The owner of the property, as well as one or two other members, usually runs a bed and breakfast.

People who often travel will admit that they enjoy the personal touch they receive at B&Bs. So the next time you travel, why not try a B&B?
