Stay in Bath > News > News > 5 reasons to stay in a Bath B&B

This week is National B&B Week and so we thought it was the perfect time to share our favourite reasons to choose a B&B stay. Here in Bath, there are a whole host of B&Bs and guesthouses offering the best attention to detail and guest experiences in the city. So, why choose a B&B for your accommodation?

  1. Interesting history
    Unlike hotels, many of which are purpose-built, B&Bs, especially those in Bath, have a rich history to them. You’ll be surprised to learn about the building’s origins and who may have lived in the houses beforehand. In Bath many of the B&Bs are restored Georgian townhouses which still carry much of their original features making them a more interesting choice of accommodation. The owners are usually based onsite and will be happy to talk to you about the history of the property.
  2. The personal attention
    In a hotel, you’ll find lots of guests and impersonal service, there are just too many people for the staff to get to know individually. That doesn’t happen when you stay at a B&B, these properties are much smaller and with the owners often living onsite they often go the extra mile to welcome you to their home. You’ll find B&B owners are happy to give you personal attention, whether you need directions, tips on what to do during your stay or questions about the city. You’ll also find they’re happy to make alterations to your breakfast and your room, just go say hi!
  3. Local knowledge
    B&Bs are owned by people who live and work in the city, they are passionate about where they live and want to share that with other people. They have a wealth of local knowledge and can tell you the best places to go, eat and more, allowing you to see the city as though you were a local. You don’t get that with a hotel stay!
  4. Unique décor
    Unlike a hotel, where the rooms are decorated uniformly, each room of a Bed and Breakfast has its own character. They are all individually decorated and have their own thrills and as some B&Bs have themes, the rooms often differ hugely!
  5. Value for money
    Staying in a B&B is much more cost effective than a hotel stay. In a hotel you get your room and depending on where you are staying you might have access to certain leisure facilities and free parking, however, many times these can incur extra costs and you will need to pay for other amenities, like your meals. Staying at a B&B will give you a comfortable room, plus welcome packs, great local knowledge and of course an amazing breakfast. The majority of B&Bs also offer free wifi and discounts on local attractions, why not take a look at some of our properties and get access to the Bath Reward Card?


B&Bs go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and pride themselves on the service they offer. So, this B&B Week, make use of the amazing B&Bs and Guesthouses in Bath and book your stay now.
