Choosing Bed and Breakfast Accommodation

Any bed and breakfast accommodation must be as comfortable as possible. No-one wants to spend a holiday, leisure time or a stay-over for business purposes on a bed that is too soft or too hard. So, little comforts and attention to detail do matter. A choice between single, double or family rooms should be on offer and bathrooms should be spacious enough and preferably have a relaxed feel. TVs are considered mandatory, as this is a way of unwinding at the end of a busy day; DSTV is expected as so many households have access to these bouquets on a daily basis.

Businessmen who are visiting Johannesburg for business purposes, will expect bed and breakfast accommodation to also have facilities for meetings, workshops or intimate functions, should the need arise. Free Wi-Fi that is available at all times will make communication such as Skype calls easy. This makes liaising with business associates as well as speaking to loved ones at home an easy click away.

In addition, we are also well suited to accommodation for Groups up to 20 people at a time in our central Melville location.

The fact that bed and breakfast accommodation is centrally located makes getting around much easier as easy access to shops and restaurants for those on holiday is a must. Furthermore, access to major highways, airports and other forms of transport such as taxis will make the life of a guest much easier.

Alternatively, the visitor can ask the reception desk to arrange for a car-hire and drive around at leisure. If you are on holiday, you can choose the convenience of B&B accommodation as a springboard to the next destination.

B&B Accommodation should have laundry facilities as everyone who is booked for extended stays will have to do washing. This is especially true if babies or toddlers form part of the family. Off-street and secure parking is a must for guests traveling by own transport. In the same breadth, friendly and helpful reception personnel who can assist with restaurant or tour bookings are an invaluable asset to any establishment.

Last but not least is a bed and breakfast accommodation's ability to satisfy the different taste buds of its patrons, either by having an in-house restaurant or having a good selection of complimentary food outlets close by. Breakfast which is included could be buffet or a` la carte. Typically the breakfast buffet selection is a wide, nutritious range catering for the general as well as unique preferences of guests. Establishments will clarify these details upon booking, including other meal requirements. A swimming pool on the premises as well as deck chairs and umbrellas will be a heaven-sent on hot summer days and a great bonus for your stay. You can also expect coffee and tea in the rooms available daily and on request.

Many hotel guests who are on holiday will explore the vicinity around the bed and breakfast accommodation. When you make the booking, enquire from the clerk what the places of interest in the area are, namely the main attractions. In addition, one should inquire about the various neighbouring activities such as golf, group or family-orientated activities such as visiting botanic gardens, parks or touring nature reserves.
