If you’re planning on going to a Bed and Breakfast (B&B), then there is a lot of things to keep in mind before you book a B&B. First of all, you need to understand that a B&B is not like your usual hotel. A B&B is more personal and cushier. The décor in the rooms have antiques and are appealing to the visitors. The visitors would like to experience the culture of the city during their stay. If you are someone who likes to meet new people and be social, then a B&B is the perfect place for you. Here are a few tips for someone who is looking for the right B&B.
Pets and kids
You need to make sure and check if the B&B allows children and are pet-friendly. This is based on your preference, if you are someone who is on a romantic getaway, then you wouldn’t want toddlers or kids in the same house, or if you are allergic to pets, you might want to opt for a B&B that is not pet-friendly. It could also be the opposite of this; if you have kids or love kids, you could go for a B&B that allows kids. If you are planning to take your pet with you on your tour, then a pet-friendly B&B is the one you should look for.
Bathroom and toilet
Some visitors might want a separate bathroom and toilet for themselves, preferably a bathroom attached to their rooms. Not all B&Bs provide separate facilities as some might have shared services where you might have to share the bathroom with others. It is advisable to ask the host about this and then decide. When it comes to the bathroom, do enquire about the heating system as some ancient B&Bs might not have modern facilities.
Some hosts do not live in the B&B and might live farther away, so they will have a particular check-in time. Please ask them if the timings are flexible and if there is a curfew of when you can come back after sightseeing. You must keep in touch with the hosts and let them know when you will be arriving.
When you check-in to a B&B, you might expect a home-like environment. It is advisable to make a list of the basic needs you have like Wi-fi connection, refreshments etc. and ask the host of the B&B if they provide such services before you check-in.
You might go to a B&B for a vacation or a Staycation, it’s your home away from home for a while, so it is important to make sure the surrounding area is as per your preference if you want a calm environment or a B&B that’s in between the city where everything you need is accessible. Make sure you keep these tips in mind and choose the right B&B.
