Starting a bed & breakfast
You're dreaming of your own bed & breakfast. You would love to welcome nice people and have them enjoy your home, a delicious breakfast, and the surroundings. But, where to start?
It’s important that you properly handle your B&B project right from the start. Starting and running a bed & breakfast is quite a challenge. You will be dealing with all aspects of a small business. You will be investing in the furnishing of your B&B, buying products, handling the administration, and setting up a marketing plan. Often you’ll need permits or permission from your municipality. You will also have to deal with questions such as: what to do in case of cancellations, how do I guard my privacy, what room rate shall I ask?
As you will be running your bed & breakfast longer, you will gain experience and automatically find the answers to those questions. You can also learn a lot from B&B starters who went before you.
Your B&B findable on the internet
After the right preparation, it’s time: your B&B opens its doors! Now, it’s essential to be findable on the internet as quickly as possible. Therefore, first register your bed & breakfast on Bedandbreakfast.nl, the largest B&B website in the Netherlands.
Soon you’ll be welcoming your first guests, and they will write a review. Exciting… what will they think of your bed and breakfast? It goes without saying that your bed and breakfast is clean and pleasant. And that your guests enjoy a comfortable bed and a lavish breakfast.
Thanks to your personal input and small acts of kindness they will truly feel welcome. Think of a fresh flower bouquet on the table, a pleasant conversation, or a welcome drink. You will get a lot in return for your service focus: that huge satisfaction when your guests leave well-rested and content after a lovely stay.
