Bed and Breakfast Hominess - This just comes naturally at a Bed and
Breakfast. Instead of walking into a cold, unfeeling hotel lobby, you
are personally greeted by the owners themselves. Each guest is made to
feel at home.
Excellent security - Most bed and breakfasts are
small and accommodate only a few guests at a time, the owners are aware
of what is going on and who is there at all times.
location - The Bed and Breakfast setting is often a quiet, peaceful one,
away from the busy, noisy thoroughfares where most hotels are located.
flexibility - The owners are open to meeting your special needs. They
can allow you access to the kitchen, serve breakfast in your room,
provide battery cables if your car won’t start, etc. They are there to
serve you and make your Bed and Breakfast stay enjoyable.
Bed and Breakfast hosts - Since those in charge are usually the Bed and
Breakfast owners themselves, they are familiar with what you can see
and do in that particular area. They will know what restaurants to
recommend and which ones are best for children.
More intimate Bed
and Breakfast experience - Many times guests are greeted with fresh
fruit juice and home-baked products. If you want a late night snack
there is often a guest pantry housing many "goodies" that you can enjoy.
you consider the atmosphere, the cost and the extras as benefits to
staying at a Dartmoor Bed and Breakfast, you won’t even consider booking
a room at a hotel when you travel.
Thoughts from a Dartmoor Observer on Dartmoor Bed and Breakfast
To B&B or Not to B&B that is the question.
thought of going to a Bed and breakfast establishment makes me feel
unreasonably uneasy, this maybe just part of my upbringing having never
gone to B&B’s as a child with a family, and therefore have a deep
seated mistrust of strangers asking you to come into their homes. After
all are you not always taught not to trust strangers?
about a bed that has different people sleeping in it maybe every night
also raises a doubt, but why don't I have the same feelings about
Hotels? Is this just snobbery? Do I trust the paid staff of a Hotel to
do a better cleaning job than the owners of a Bed and Breakfast? I think
not, so that brings me back to snobbery, or something else.
dartmoor bed and breakfasts just to much like staying with relatives you
hardly know or don't like? Is the B & B environment making you
think about your actions? Noise you make or the return time from the pub
having had one or two over the norm, to delay your reappearance hoping
not to meet the guest house proprietors but instead falling into their
open arms when the door springs open when you hadn't even hit the lock
with the key.
I think it comes down to whether the personal touch
of the B&B suits you, or the impersonal “no” touch of the Hotel
suits you better.
One thing is for certain - the breakfast at the
Dartmoor B & B's I stayed at was better than the Dartmoor hotels.
This type of personal touch I could get all too used to!
So - to
B&B or not to B&B? Well, these days the cost is quite high but
the rooms are generally on suite which makes a whole lot of difference,
and maybe this is the change that that swings the balance from the
Dartmoor Hotel to the Dartmoor B&B. On cost alone it makes sense.
