Hotel VS B&B

Choosing somewhere to stay for your next trip away from home can be confusing. After all, there are so many types of accommodation that it’s hard to know where to start. Let’s begin by looking at the advantages of staying in a hotel versus a night in a B&B.


Most hotels tend to be large buildings, some even with their own well kept gardens and acres of outside space. This means that they are more likely to have rooms available for your stay. You have more say in what type of room you want, whether that be with a specific view or in quieter areas of the hotel. In many hotels you also get to take advantage of a host of amenities such as a swimming pool, sauna and an on site restaurant with its own dedicated chef. You don’t even have to leave the hotel to feel like you’re taking a break.

Bed and Breakfast

Generally speaking, most B&Bs have a more personal feel to them. Not only do they tend to be smaller, but you are also more likely to have more social interaction. A massive bonus of staying in a B&B is that there are usually no additional costs outside of your room price. Everything you have access to is commonly part of the all in price, which can include breakfast and parking. B&Bs also tend to be more unique, with no two rooms looking the same.

Choosing whether to go for a hotel or B&B is purely down to the individual and their personal preference. Of course, there are some accommodations out there which offer a perfect mix of hotel perks and B&B personalisation. If you’re lucky you might just stumble upon a place that feels cosy and homely, yet has the benefit of having high class amenities which makes it feel a little more luxurious.
