Things to Keep in Mind When Choosing a B&B
B&Bs are different from hotels, and there are a few things that can trip up the first time visitor. While it is possible to find a unique B&B almost anywhere, there are a few things to keep in mind.
The first is that services may be more limited than in a hotel. Breakfast will always be available, but other meals like lunch or dinner may not be available. Rooms may also be more basic, and services such as multi-channel TV are less likely to be available. The vast majority of B&Bs now offer free WiFi to their guests, but speeds can vary. In many cases, this will not be down to the owner but will simply be as a result of the poorer quality broadband services that are available in the countryside. Finally, it’s worth keeping in mind that a B&B is likely to be small, and in some cases, you may have to share communal facilities with other guests. In the vast majority of cases, this information will be available on the B&B website, but any guests who are unsure should call to ask.
