Many people are frequently seeking a break from their busy lives and they need some time to escape from the stresses of living in bustling cities. The main problem people face before going away is deciding where to stay.
There are many options available such as hotels, guest houses, lodges, B&B’s, timeshare, etc. and this makes it quite difficult to choose the right place for your needs. A great option that is often overlooked is that of a guest house. Guest houses have been in existence for many years and they were mainly used at overnight places for people to stay while passing through from one town to the next.
A lot has changed in regards to guest houses over the years and more and more people are starting realize the benefits of staying at a guest house for a weekend getaway. The first major benefit of guest houses is that they are often cheaper than hotels and in many ways, are often better. The service you can receive at a guest house can surpass that of hotels by far because it can be a more personal experience. In big hotels, you are just another guest but at guest houses, you are much more. The experience involving you and the staff and owners is much more personal and you find yourself making friends.
Guest houses can be just as lavish, if not more lavish than hotels. The rooms are more often than not, larger than hotel rooms, giving you more space and you won’t have to worry about using your shin to find tables in the dark, there will be more than enough space to go around them.
Guest houses can be a great way to unwind because hotels tend to be much busier and you actually don’t end up relaxing the way you thought you would. Screaming kids are simply a no-no when it comes to your relaxation.
You might say that hotels have so many more activities and entertainment options. Although, that may be true, half the time they are busy and you can’t even enjoy using them and often they are quite poorly maintained which leads to a rather disappointing experience.
