Guide to staying in Bed & Breakfasts and Guest Houses in the UK

Often in people’s homes; B&Bs have many of the home comforts you will be used to.

Many modern Bed & Breakfasts are geared up for the demands of modern travellers, many having facilities such as en-suite, satellite television and Wi-Fi available to guests. (You can see what facilities all Bed & Breakfasts have in the Facilities page of each listing).

If you do decide to stay at a B&B you should always ask what time breakfast is served at as serving times are usually much shorter than in a hotel. If the owners of the B&B only employ one or two staff then they may be more flexible as to your requirements. Try to find out about the establishment before you book. A Bed and Breakfast may not necessarily be cheaper than a hotel; on the other hand they will offer a more personal service which is great when you need some inside tips on exploring a new area.

Tips for enjoying your stay

Location

Use our town maps to choose a property close to where you wish to stay. B&Bs can be right in the centre of a town or can be very much off the beaten track. Be careful to choose accommodation that meets your holiday/trips needs.

Bedrooms

Usually the Bed and Breakfast will have a mixture of singles, twins and doubles. Take care to book a room that suits your needs; smaller establishments may have difficulty changing your preferences at the last minute

Breakfast

The first meal of the day is usually a substantial affair including cereal, toast and a ‘full English/Scottish/Welsh’ fried breakfast. Modern B&B’s often offer a choice including the more relaxed Continental Breakfast which can be more flexible if you need an early start. Also look out for regional and local delicacies such as Kippers, Sausages and Black Pudding. Vegetarian breakfasts can be a real treat too!

Getting involved

Some of the very special properties will have owners to match! If you are an enthusiastic traveller looking for the inside information on the area, often the bed and breakfast owners have a vast knowledge of the area.

Bed & Breakfast or Guest House?

Recently regional tourist boards have started to differentiate between the traditional Bed and Breakfast and the Guest House – it can often be a regional differentiation. Many of the large tourist boards now refer collectively to “Guest Accommodation” – we have simplified this to Bed & Breakfasts as it is the most searched term by far.

Help & tips:

Bed & Breakfasts

  1. Because B&Bs are often also people’s homes they can often be some way from town/city centres – if you are travelling without a car bear this in mind
  2. Look out for special properties in buildings with real character and charm – lighthouses, mills, cabins, historical buildings are all featured in this guide
  3. If you have special dietary needs remember to ask before booking
  4. Not all bed and breakfasts are pet friendly – if in doubt ask!
  5. Take cash! Not all smaller establishments will accept cheques or cards.
  6. If you are travelling with your family make sure it is suitable
  7. Stag Dos and Hen Dos – note that not all properties will welcome 20 nuns looking for a place to stay!
