Airbnb offers no breakfast at all? They are quite popular. What would the difference in price be approximately?Continental is an absolute no no. If anything, pack a bag for the guests to take away, but not something where they are picking over the food. Or, do Airbnb style with nothing to eat. It’s really your choice as long as guests know what to expect.
Thank youGood Morning Olga, I would do what is best for your area, be the one that does breakfast! a lot of people i deal with look forward to my breakfast. Just advertise how clean your keeping the kitchen, and your place. I am in MA in the country I barley have been impacted by the Covid-19. I hope this helps a bit.
My innkeeper friend where I now live has several rooms in the main house and several in a detached large *cottage*. She has gone to in-room very simple breakfast delivery for the main house rooms (3) as each of those rooms has a place to sit and enjoy breakfast. The cottage rooms have been changed to mostly long-term stays. They have some coffee service in each room, small fridges, and one even has a full kitchen. Her biz is way down, but the majority of her guests are folks building new homes in the area. (How I met her as well 3 years ago.)I have heard of places only offering stay overs, but no breakfast, or maybe just a continental breakfast instead. What are your thoughts?
And keep in mind that most people probably think, incredibly, that the food is free and they don't even consider its value when they're comparing rates vs. places that don't include breakfast. I've always felt this is the great shortcoming of the BnB model.The cost of food needs to be taken into account but so do all the other pieces — utilities, time, any staff you might no longer need.
