Something many aspiring entrepreneurs dream of doing is opening their own Bed-and-Breakfast.
There are many details that make a B & B successful.
One of the big ones is location. If you’re in the middle of nowhere, you may have less clientele than you would if you were somewhere a little more populous, somewhere tourists are interested in visiting.
Another key aspect for running a successful B & B is the quality of the hospitality. A main reason why some travelers seek out smaller, individually-owned places like B & B’s is that they provided a certain level of warm, authentic hospitality, and charm that you just don’t get at a cookie-cutter corporate hotel.
In addition to the location, and quality hospitality, the décor is very important. You should take pride in the larger details as well as the small ones within the guests’ room. The room is where most of the guests will spend the majority of their time, so it’s important that it’s looking its best. Invest in a nice room tray, a leather desk blotter, and things like leather notepad holders to add a slight air of refinement to your cozy atmosphere. By adding these items to the room, it reminds the guest that they’re staying at a serious business.
