For anyone who wants to make the most out of a holiday vacation, staying at a B&B is the way to go. Compared to a resort or a hotel, a Bed and Breakfast offers you a home away from home.
There’s been a lot of media hype over B&B’s. Think of all the films and TV shows that have featured a Bed and Breakfast, it’s always the “family like atmosphere”. The illustration of a B&B experience has come to represent a go-to for the adventurous traveller, the group getaway parties, the relaxed un-wind read a book traveller, and the honeymooners wanting to escape. B&B’s offer a home like setting; it’s more than just a place to stay, it’s the experience that gets customers wanting to come back.
For these reasons, B&B’s have been popping up everywhere, becoming more and more popular. Vacationers want a personal connection with the places they visit, the cold interpersonal hotel experience can’t compare to the home hospitality of a B&B.
A B&B host becomes your personal concierge to ensure you find the best local attractions and experiences. Imagine it as a newfound friend to help you explore an unfamiliar area. Your hosts are knowledgeable of the area and can help you with your travel, often being aware of secret places that are hidden away and known only to locals. They can also help you prepare for your trip before departing, from what to bring to suggesting car rental agencies to book with.
In most cases, the owners operate and live in the B&B. You are essentially staying in a home that has been carefully designed to accommodate guests. Owners take great pride in decorating; it’s often a labour of love, after all this is their home. Areas are planned to offer maximum comfort, where common areas are usually the place to mingle and swap stories of the days’ adventures. Most common areas offer books or games to pass the time.
Before you book your accommodation; consider these advantages of staying at a B&B over a Resort or Hotel:
Take advantage of your host’s knowledge of the area. Hosts are typically more than willing to provide restaurant recommendations, recreational tips and let you in on some “tugged away spots” you’d probably never find otherwise. The value of a B&B’s friendly personal service outweighs any hotel’s information desk.
Home away from home – a family atmosphere:
B&B’s provide a unique experience with a comfortable bed and a yummy breakfast in the morning. But it is more than a fluffy bed; owners go out of their way to ensure that guests feel at home. It is the warm welcome you feel, the family atmosphere, the feeling like you’re home, it’s the perfect way to relax and end the day.
Being on vacation will be exciting but it will also be tiring, there’s a lot to see and do. You will be out every day from morning to late evening, so going back to a place that feels a little like a home can provide a bit of comfort while you are away from yours. And the best part is most B&B’s provide a prepared breakfast to take with you on those early morning excursions.
Meeting new people:
Bed and breakfasts are small, so this means you come into close contact with the owners and other guests; making it easy to meet new friends from around the world.
So, if you’ve never considered staying at a B&B for your vacation, consider now. It’s all part of the travel journey, you won’t regret the experience it adds to your travel adventure!
