2 on the bed (one per guest if a couple) and 2 more in dresser drawers. 2 rooms have feather on the beds and fiber-fill in the dresser drawers. the other guestroom is feather-free and al the pillows there are fiber-fill.  If they need more, all they have to do is ask. I do not use the shams because there is no place to put the darn things so you can sleep in the bed! (I do not want them on the floor and then going back on the bed.

One pillow per person. There is also a Euro and a sham as well. I have some spare in the closet, but quantity depends on the room. For specific pillows or more they usually have to ask. We keep some specifically flat and memory foam. We have no feather. We are asked, but we deal with a lot of allergies. I often change pillows out after a year or less, to keep them fluffy.

Other: Generally only one pillow per head on the bed (a lot of our beds are single, twin, beds, so they only have one pillow). Extra pillows are available in each cottage, in a closet or drawer, not sure exactly how many.

 4 on the bed, 2 in the armoire.

We had the same - 4 on the bed (2 firm, 2 soft), plus 2 feather pillows in the closet.  Plus, the pillows in shams on the bed for the truly desperate for more pillow guests!

After just coming home from staying with friends who only had 2 pillows on the bed in their guest room, I'm sure that having more pillows was a good thing. 

Even though we weren't paying for anything....

I need a ton of pillows to read in bed. There used to be just the 2 pillows and the 2 sham pillows here. But, the shams were a shame so I just bought all new pillows for the beds, new shams and stuffed the decent old pillows into the shams. 4 pillows plus 2 in shams. Sometimes I find them all neatly piled on the floor, other times every pillow is in use.

We regularly have guest pillows on the beds. Anti-snoring pillows, buckwheat pillows, memory foam, all kinds. Some of them weigh a ton!

Yep, I'm with you...please give me my pillows!  And btw...a headboard!  Our friends didn't have a headboard on the bed in their guest room and we didn't feel good about propping ourselves up against the wall to read in bed.  You know, you're always worried about scratching the paint or something.

Needless to say, I didn't say anything to our friends but it reminded me of how much innkeepers try to anticipate the needs of their guests.

I do not understand the no headboard thing. Headboards are CHEAP why not buy some! I makes the room look finished. Without one it looks like they just threw a mattress in the room and said good to go. And, unless the bed is bolted to the wall, when guests do sit up to read they're going to shove off from the wall and either roll across the floor or scratch the floor if there are no wheels.

I think in the case of our friends, they just don't have that many overnight guests.  Their guest room is lovely...just no headboard on the bed.

I was looking at a bunch of home photos from realtor ads for where we're thinking of moving and was struck by the number of beds in bedrooms without headboards!  I don't get it either...like you said, headboards are relatively inexpensive.

It's like closets without doors. Unsightly. Unfinished.

to be clear we do 4 on the bed and 1 spare in the wardrobe - more if asked we have one chap who has 4 due to having to prop his legs up at night.
