Types of Accommodation

The accommodation you choose is going to depend on a few things, like:

  • The area in which you are headed
  • The amount of money to have to spend
  • Your expectations for the trip
  • The people you are travelling with or if you are travelling alone

When you are completely certain of all of these things, you can start looking around for the kind of place that will tick all of your boxes.

Guest houses

Guest house accommodation is always a treat. That homely environment and limited number of guests can make your trip feel extra special. Guest house accommodation is generally not ideal for the bigger groups and it can be a little pricey, mostly because a stay in such accommodation can be a lot more exclusive. Guest houses can sometimes include meals, with many having a restaurant on the premises, but there are some exceptions, such as self-catering guest houses. This type of accommodation is also generally family owned.

Bed and Breakfast

The bed and breakfast accommodation is one of the oldest types of accommodation and is often preferred by those who are travelling on business. As the name says, when you stay in this type of accommodation, you will have a comfortable room as well as breakfast in the morning. This accommodation is often affordable and is usually preferred for the one night stay over.

Lodges and Hotels

For the most part, lodges and hotels can hand in hand because they often have a very similar setup. Generally, there are plenty of rooms and the accommodation is either self-catered or it has meals included. This style of accommodation can be a little more on the expensive side, because the accommodation is often more luxurious, or it comes with other types of perks. That said, this type of accommodation is great for a family holiday.
