What’s the difference between Hotel, Guest House and Bed and Breakfast insurance?
Hotels are usually an establishment that provides guests with a place to stay. Most Hotel rooms usually come with an en-suite bathroom. They have a designated eating area for Breakfast and dinner. There is usually a receptionist to help at any time if needed, with 24-hour service.
Guest Houses are different from Bed & Breakfasts. Guest Houses are usually a full-time business compared to Bed and Breakfasts, however, do not have a 24-hour receptionist like Hotels. Guest Houses are VAT registered, unlike most Bed & Breakfasts. Guest Houses usually have less than 15 bedrooms available, compared to Hotels which have considerably more.
Whatever establishment your business is if it’s a small hotel insurance you require or a b&b insurance. We will make sure your cover is correct and to the best possible cover for your business.
