Romantic B&B Getaways

For those looking for a romantic getaway, there are bed and breakfast accommodations that offer just such a quiet, romantic and private atmosphere.

What is the difference between a hotel and a bed and breakfast?

A bed and breakfast is accommodation usually offered in someone’s home. If the proprietor does not live on site, the owner will be living nearby and run the business personally. Rarely do bed and breakfast establishments have paid professional managers. The original modern bed and breakfasts offered just a clean private room with a common bathroom and dining area for the guests to have breakfast.

Modern visitor demands mean that new accommodation usually have ensuite (or attached) bathrooms. Breakfasts are normally of a very high standard, being home made and usually use local ingredients. Depending on the guest’s preference, they can be as sociable with the owner, their family and other guests as they want. If they prefer privacy, that too will be accorded to them.

It is difficult to place a strict definition on what constitutes a B&B. Locations, facilities offered (above the basic bed and breakfast) architecture, interior décor etc. all vary. All these depend on the targeted guests, the people running it and local conditions. B & B accommodation may be found in everyday homes, mansions, town houses, farms, ranches, castles, wilderness cabins, historic hotels, wayside inns and so on.

The advantages of a B&B are that the atmosphere is more personal with the owner taking a personal interest in the comfort of the guests and being able to provide them with firsthand local knowledge that can add immensely to the quality of their stay.

Running a Bed and Breakfast

Rightmoves UK has published a brief summary on running a bed and breakfast. It's basic but gives some sound advice and should be of interest to readers. Some of the main points are that a b and b is obviously easier to operate than a larger hotel and meals and organising the kitchen can be a much smaller affair. The article also suggests buying an overseas bed and breakfast which may be a novel idea to most. A good suggestion is to buy a property with the capacity to add rooms at a later date as your bnb income will be dependent on how many rooms you can offer.
