Inspire me !

We’ve put together a list of inspirational ideas for National B&B Day; the kind of special offers and activities you could provide to attract guests to stay with you for the B&B Day weekend!

What you do is entirely up to you of course, and the sky’s the limit! Here are a few suggestions to get you started…

And a big thank you to the hundreds of hosts and hoteliers who submitted offers and ideas for a great B&B Day celebration deal for National B&B Day 2018. Gin tastings, goody bags of local produce, cookery classes and free attraction tickets were just some of the fantastic ideas B&Bs came up with, along with masses of discounts, upgrades and extras.

Give your guests a discount!

Not the most original idea, but always effective!

  • A special discount for the weekend of B&B Day
  • Pay for one or two nights and get an extra night free
  • A free stay for accompanied children
  • A discount for guest for the next time that they stay
  • A promo code to get a discount on bookings made through your website

Work with your community

Go viral, get everyone to pitch in!

  • Make deals with your local gift shops, attractions, coffee shops or restaurants to get your guests a discount that weekend
  • Pay for a massage or beauty therapist to come and pamper your guests for free
  • Offer a free class such as yoga, pottery-making or wine tasting

Give them some free perks!

Those little things that go a long way!

  • A bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine in the room
  • Free breakfast, lunch or dinner
  • Free chocolates
  • Drinks or cocktails on arrival
  • Free afternoon teas, cake and coffee
  • Free upgrades – rooms, facilities or extras

Something a bit different

People who work in hospitality have a big heart!

a free stay
