Guesthouses and bed & breakfasts in the UK offer:
- Accommodation in a private house, usually run by the owner. With lots of personalised touches, great service and a warm welcome, make the most of your host and ask for their insider tips on places to visit, things to do, and walks in the area.
- A traditional Scottish breakfast (haggis optional) or full continental, which will include cold meats, cheese, fresh fruit, and bakery items, and other dietary requirements. Some even serve evening meals. B&Bs and guesthouses do not usually provide facilities for you to cook for yourself.
- Extra facilities such as off-road parking, pet-friendly rooms, or handy storage for bikes or golf clubs.
Whilst both B&Bs and guesthouses offer a bed for the night and breakfast the next morning, B&Bs will usually host no more than six guests at one time, offering a personal touch to your stay. Guesthouses tend to be larger, with at least four bedrooms for guests.
