The Benefits of Choosing a Guest House

The Benefits of Choosing a Guest House

Are you looking for a place to stay near Loughborough and weighing up the differences between a B&B, guest house and hotel?

The differences between the three are plenty and you should certainly make your choice based on the things that are important to you.

In addition, one thing’s for sure, that high standards should be expected across the board, whichever type of accommodation you go for.

What is a guest house?

When you’re planning things to do in Loughborough and an overnight stay is on the cards, here are a few differences between the three choices:

Bed and Breakfast

Normally a private house which lets out some of its rooms to paying guests. Here you will only have a room for the night and breakfast the next day, as the name suggests. They also do not normally serve alcohol and any additional staff, other than the owners of the property, is rare. Access during nighttime hours might be limited.

Guest House

A step up on the variety of services provided by a bed and breakfast, a guest house is more of a business than a home. They may well serve dinner as well as breakfast and also have a bar on the premises, although this is not a given. It will often have more rooms to stay in than a B&B and not all will necessarily be ensuite, although it is becoming more common.


Often a business on a larger scale, a hotel will have even more rooms available than a guest house and B&B, while also regularly serving breakfast and dinner in a separate dining area. It will have access for guests 24 hours per day, ensuite rooms and a permanently manned reception, as well as cleaning and catering staff. The cost to stay here will generally be much more expensive than in a B&B or guest house.
