Bed and Breakfast

A bed and breakfast may provide the same basic amenities as a hotel, although it isn't quite the same thing and a b and b break can be the perfect answer for couples looking for a romantic weekend, or who just want to be pampered for a night or two.

The Appeal Of a Bed and Breakfast

Whether you are looking at staying in a bed and breakfast in Reading or anywhere else in the UK, a weekend break makes the ideal way to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or other special occasion. And of course, you don't even need an occasion to stay in a b and b; a long weekend break is the ideal antidote to the usual stressful work routine. It's also the perfect way to surprise that special someone, and a weekend spent at a b and b can be a chance to reconnect and spend quality time together. Most bed and breakfast places provide a personal touch and attention to detail that you just don't find at many hotels. Often, it's the small touches that make a b and b stay memorable, such as afternoon tea or a glass of sherry, a morning newspaper, access to the owner's library or lounge. And of course, one of the most appealing things about a b and b is the breakfast, which is usually excellent and often places the emphasis on fresh and locally sourced ingredients.

What To Look For In a Bed and Breakfast

It's easy to find the perfect b and b in any part of the UK, or anywhere else in the world, and several good websites offer descriptions, reviews and lists of amenities, along with photographs. Firstly, deciding where you want to stay may be a challenge; you may want the peace and tranquility of the Cotswolds or the Lake District, or perhaps somewhere in London, York, or Edinburgh, with easy access to theatres, shops and restaurants. Some bed and breakfasts also offer an evening meal too, and pride themselves on the quality of their food, while others strive to create as relaxing an atmosphere as possible. Of course, price is important too, and you can pay up to several hundred pounds a night for some of the most luxurious rooms in the UK's best bed and breakfasts. It all depends on what you want as far as room size, extras, amenities and overall level of comfort.
