There are plenty reasons why you should give bed & breakfast a chance.
For starters, they are totally different from anything you’ve done before and its better value for your experience is most cases. A bed & breakfast is something of a mix between a boutique hotel and a private home. Usually, the service is extremely personal. The owners might live on-site, and it’s not unusual that they spend time together with their guests. Owned almost exclusively by families, B&B’s are recognized and remembered for superior service and unique atmosphere. B&B’s have long been a smart investment in the right markets, and current trends for the industry show growing demand—and here’s why.
The Added Value of bed & breakfast
B&B’s are emerging as viable lodging options due to their inherent value. When travelers book a B&B, they don’t just get a bed—their reservation is complemented by various invaluable amenities such as homemade food, free Internet, and, most importantly, a hospitable staff. The significance of a personal connection with guests is invaluable—travelers will seek out a B&B due to its reputation, so if the owner can offer an exceptionally friendly stay, their property will stand out.
Millennials are picking bed & breakfast
While some say millennials are killing industries such as casual dining and golf, the travel industry has never been in better shape thanks to young, newly employed adventurers. Millennials make up nearly a quarter of the population—just as large of a population as baby boomers—and are looking for unique travel experiences. B&B’s are a great value for travelers on a budget. One fee warrants a roof, food, and most importantly, an adventure. B&B’s inherently offer a quaint, unique stay complete with the personal touch—akin to staying with a friend. From the fruit bowl on the table to family pictures on the mantel, B&B’s give visitors an immersive experience to remember.
The power of recommendations
The travel industry is experiencing a bit of a sea of change lately—people trust their friends more than they trust traditional advertising. Studies show that travelers will overlook a notable brand name, and even a low cost, in favor of a positive recommendation. One survey found that 76 percent of people ranked recommendations as their primary consideration when booking lodging. The same survey found that over 75 percent of people do their own travel planning, so B&B’s that offer notable experiences will stand out when it comes time for individuals to make reservations.
