12 years ago when we bought an existing b&b, there were no hair dryers in the rooms. The guest had to ask. First thing I did was to buy the kind shown in your picture and mount them. They have been wonderful and all are still working.Speaking of irons and hairdryers...how many of you provide regular hair dryers such as one would purchase for personal use vs. the "hotel" type where it is attached via the cord to the wall/outlet with it's own "docking" station. Such as these...
I have opinions both pro and con but I'm interested to hear what you all think.
I have also stayed in places with a scant listing of amenities...they tell you about the pool, the thread count, the business center, but not about basic do I pack this or that things. Makes me nuts and drives phone calls to a innkeeper or staff member, all of which could be avoided if they just told me up front. I unlike many, I actually read that stuff first, thus avoiding the phone call and being told, "Yes, it is listed on our web site, why wouldn't we have it.".
A couple years later, we took a trip and stayed in everything from a budget hotel to a swanky one (no b&b) and in each and every room no matter the room rate, there was an iron and ironing board. When we came back home, we installed in all the closets this hanger and bought cheap irons and mini ironing boards.
I figure if a cheap a** motel provides it in your room, then it should be standard fare in a b&b room. The upside of having these things at guest's fingertips is that they don't have to ask for anything and I don't get disturbed during my off hours by these simple requests. It's a win, win.
