'Nothing is more diverse' than UK B&B sector
A writer who stays in British bed and breakfasts on a weekly basis has claimed that there is nothing more diverse in the UK than this particular sector.
While some owners of such establishments may believe the key to guests returning in the provision of white bed linen, a cosy room and hearty breakfast, other may think that a theme is what makes them stand out from the crowd, while others may rely on technological incentives.
Sally Shalam, in a blog post for the Guardian, was commenting in the new Channel 4 series Three In A Bed - where the owners of three B&Bs vote to choose which is the best.
However, she claims that this is not really a realistic portrayal of the industry.
She notes that so far she has not been "remotely tempted" to stay at any of the establishments featured in the programme, despite the show itself being entertaining.
However, talking about her own experience, Ms Shalam claims to have only had an average of two "duff" experience for every 50 B&Bs she stays in each year.
One couple to feature in the programme recently told the Daily Record they were left "crushed" by what the competition had said about their business.
