    Real difference between a B&B and Hotel?

    Might be a silly question but new to me.

    usually about £80 per night

    Supermod

    Hotels do not always offer breakfast amongst other things...

    You wont find 10 hotels door to door in whitby run by old women.

    most b&b charge per person, whereas Hotel usually charge per room

    Ah an easy explanation. So if I ordered a B&B for 3 nights I could leave my stuff in there.

    See I don't use B&B's at all.

    B&B usually furnished with flowery carpets, curtains and bed linen. And No extras.

    Hotels are usually bigger and nicer than BnB's Adam. And as the first post says cost more generally too xx

    if you rent a room hun you can leave your stuff in it until time to check out.

    Dont leave anything important laying around though, like your wallet or passport as the maid will come in and clean.

    Most hotels have a safe in the room you can lock valuables in.

    Oh dont stay in a b and b ....... they are awful i have stayed in 2 and they always smell a little musty i think

    No really though if he just wants a place to crash and leave his baggage a BnB will be fine...

    If he wants somewhere nicer then pick a nice hotel xx

    b+b is more like someones home, you get breakfast in the morning. Some b+bs have times during the day you cant be in them, so would be able to leave your stuff but not really go back.

    Is that when they get their swinging friends over? Never heard of mod locking you out during the day.

    Lol, most dont but I have seen it on the tv before where they do, and my brother stayed in a few when he was looking for work in another part of the country, and some of those said they didnt want people in for a few hours in the day, was when they did cleaning and stuff

    Totally agree, I feel like I am in someone elses home. If I were to stay in one, I would try and go for a bigger one. The breakfasts are lovely though in the ones I have been in :thumbsup:

    mine too tbh, but I have always stayed in smaller ones, I think there would be a difference if you stayed at a larger one, would feel more hotel like.

    I woulda screamed the place down babe lol!

    Psycho nut job ;-)

    Its still very freaky being in a room by yourself though... last time I was in a hotel room alone I began to feel the room itself was gonna come alive and eat me and I'd never escape lol!!

    I should write movies

    Only problem with B&B's for me is that because they're mostly private the doors lock quite early sometimes which is no good when you're getting to your destination late or have been out nearly all day.

    Plus I haven't known of a B&B as yet that has done rooms for £9 a night.

    Thanks for all your input guys

    I have stayed in some pretty bad hotels....initially look good but then yuk in rooms. Have also stayed in some really nice B&B places.

    In areas where there is competition, eg the Lakes, there are some top class B&B's. Owners gave us a lot of space, delivered bfast to our room at no extra charge (they knew we were having a weekend away without kids).

    Suppose it depends whether it's a holiday or business break. I am more relaxed on hols so happy to talk to owners and get to know the area. Business trips, just want to be in and out and bland hotel OK

    The ratings are a pretty good guide to the sort of accommodation etc you're likely to get.
    We've only stayed in a few B&B's in the UK and basically they have fitted the decriptions. Some have been very nice and some we have found more basic but handy for e.g. before flying the next day.
    The main differences between B&B and hotel in the UK is that hotels provide reception services and tend to be bigger and more expensive than B&B. Guest houses are an intermediate and I've only ever stayed in one and that was the one that fitted the descriptions of the creepy/run down establishments described above.

    I love having a hotel room to myself, am I odd :lol:

    dcx_badass;6224753
    Why? It's a room not sleeping on the street.

    I stayed here:
    Ramada Hollywood Near Universal Studios
    Edwardian San Francisco
    Riviera Las Vegas


    I'm not really one for being on my own... xx

    Glad you had a lovely time though xx
