What's the difference between a Bed & Breakfast and a Hotel?
This is definitely a question many might have, especially, if you've never been to a Bed & Breakfast. Let me be the first to tell you, they are actually quite different.
The differences really becomes noticeable when it comes to what food is served for breakfast. Most hotels, being a chain, only offer usually a quick continental breakfast. This breakfast usually contains much of the same things like fruit, yogurt, cereals, quick bread pastries (maybe) and make your own waffle in their waffle maker with some pre-made mix (if you're lucky).. For the most part, hotels are set up as more of a apartment complex style living with uniform rooms, bedding and decor. Their ideology and theme are part of a huge target audience where personalization just is not possible. They cater to a few or more nights of sleep.
A Bed & Breakfast takes a different approach to serving their guests in more ways than one. First is the breakfast, which usually consists of an always complimentary full range of food you might always find in a home; such as: eggs, meats, breads (such as pancakes, waffles, french toast)....just to name a few. All of this is served to you as their guest. Their decor may center around an entire theme or each room may have a different theme. Their guest are an extension of their family inside that home and guests are treated as such. Furthermore, they want each and every guest as comfortable as possible; which usually means all the same wonderful amenties you are used to having at your own home. They cater to each and every guest on an individual basis with a one or two night stay (in most situations).
If you need an amazingly unique experience personalized to each and every one in your party, I encourage you to experience a Bed & Breakfast for your lodging needs. You will not be dissappointed!
