Some sound advice found here:
excerpt:
"Step 1 is the most important step of all: your website is like your shop window- you are displaying what you have to sell. You should spend the most time on this step and make your website as personal as possible. Don’t just let some web designer who has not even been to your business or does not know the area you are based in do all the work.
Put some personal touches in, be proud of your website."

I hear ya...
and honestly grumps, scrooges and sourpusses we don't want you to stay and be around other people, stay home, alone with your coffee and newspaper.
No body is forcing you to stay at a B&B, please don't! Do EVERYONE ELSE a favor.

Most innkeepers don't force anyone to have breakfast either. Good grief.... Every place I've stayed had early coffee out with a newspaper for asocial people or non-morning people. Another usually false misconception about B&Bs.
