5 Reasons Travelers Choose A Bed and Breakfast
Here at Afton Mountain Bed and Breakfast, we’ve noticed a trend in why our guests choose to stay with us instead of a hotel. You might call it a travel personality because there is a distinct difference between those that choose a hotel and those that choose a bed and breakfast.
Here’s what our guests tell us.
The bed and breakfast industry, on the other hand, is known for its hospitality, which is why you see many B&B’s and Inns receive great ratings for this very quality. We also give our guests more options to choose between socializing with other guests and privacy. Plus, with a bed and breakfast, there are fewer possibilities for disturbances from other guest rooms.
Secondly, each bed and breakfast is unique. Each comes with its own history and its own style of accommodation. The rooms are well-appointed but they are also bursting with personality. A B&B gives you the sense of being home because the rooms are both comfortable and elegant. The Hilton, on the other hand, has the same look and feel as all the other Hiltons.
Thirdly, there’s the management. Ultimately, B&B’s are small businesses. Innkeepers take tremendous pride in their work. Not only that, they feel a responsibility to make sure their guests are comfortable and cared for. I know we sure feel that way!
Home Cooked Breakfast
We also go out of our way to provide little perks for our guests. From free Wi-Fi and afternoon refreshments to high-quality linens, it’s the extra touches that are so refreshing to our travelers.
And, of course, there’s the food! It may be fourth on the list, but it’s #1 on our guests’ list of reasons to stay with us. Home-cooked meals, more often than not, with locally sourced ingredients, make the start of the day an enjoyable one. Some hotels offer a complimentary breakfast too, but they are rarely something you’ll remember (at least not for the right reasons). A freshly-prepared, memorable breakfast means the world to travelers who are far from home.
Last but not least, one of the top reasons people book with us is the option to reserve a room with certain qualities and features. Our returning guests especially love this. It makes the whole experience more familiar and comfortable.
In short, staying at a bed and breakfast is a very personal experience for both you and us!
