The World's Top 5 Bed and Breakfasts

The World’s Top 5 Bed and Breakfasts

Bed and Breakfasts often get a bad rap. Some people feel that they’re relinquishing some of their privacy and freedom to do as they please and come and go whenever they feel like it, but there is a huge demographic of travellers out there that are right into staying at a quaint little spot where every detail is taken care of and the heavy thinking is already done. The truth is, there is no better hospitality than that at a bed and breakfast. If you’re a world traveller, you’re probably wondering which bed and breakfasts would be the best to try out, and you’re in luck  because we’ve hunted the top five down for you below.

Down Yonder Bed and Breakfast in Rosses Point (Sligo, Ireland)

Down Yonder Bed and Breakfast in Rosses Point

The Emerald Isle is lush, rocky, and boy, do they love their golf! If you’re looking for a cute little spot to hang your hat between tours of the bigger hotspots and want to do a little golfing at the same time, look no further than the Down Yonder Bed and Breakfast in Rosses Point. Perfect for friends, lovers, or families, this bed and breakfast has it all figured out with rooms with single or queen size beds and a traditional meets contemporary décor that provides you with a comfortable sleep.

Large picture windows in each room let in a wonderful amount of light in addition to the bright green hills outside. The garden and patio are excellent for sipping wine, whiskey, or a pint of Guinness, and the 22 acres of land surrounding the home are set over the Sligo Golf Course. The beach is within walking distance too, so you can make your way down to the water for any number of fun activities, arriving back at the inn just in time for a home cooked Irish meal. 

Hawkins of Bath (Bath, UK)

Hawkins of Bath

England is absolutely full of bed and breakfasts, and a lot of them have been standing for hundreds of years. Their rich history and traditional décor are a few of the reasons that UK inns attract so many tourists who love to stay in them, and Hawkins of Bath is no exception. This Victorian B&B is considered part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has four guest rooms for travellers to choose from.

Each room has its own bathroom, and the larger suites have separate rooms for couples who would like some space and privacy when bringing their children along. The centre of town is a mile away from the inn, and cyclists will enjoy riding their bikes all over town before stashing them in the house’s dry cellar. Breakfast is made available daily in the dining room, and there is plenty of room to socialise with your family members and other guests in the spacious lounge area. They even have Wi-Fi for those who wish to log on during their stay. 

The Chalet of Canandaigua (Finger Lakes, New York, USA)

The Chalet of Canandaigua

Nestled in the area near the Finger Lakes in the northern part of New York State, The Chalet of Canandaigua is perfect for groups, couples, and families looking to get away from the rush and insanity of the city. This B&B is like a large log home with all of the amenities of a boutique inn.

Each of the three spacious guest rooms in the chalet are equipped with a soaker tub and walk in shower, as well as a rustic fireplace for that romantic feel everyone is looking for while away from home. A king size bed in each room ensures you’ll get an immensely relaxing sleep before going off into the woods for a nice hike. Enjoy wines from New York State and Niagara’s Wine Country while out, and bring some back to chill in your suite’s refrigerator.

The best room is the Balcony Suite with its own private balcony for sipping coffee from each morning while taking in the country air and the sounds of songbirds. 

Bed and Breakfast Mondello Resort (Palermo, Italy)

Bed and Breakfast Mondello Resort

Exclusively for adults or families with children over the age of 12, Mondello offers up five different guest rooms with each having its own unique theme. All of the rooms have their own private terrace for enjoying the morning and evening views of the surrounding area and the sea off in the distance, and there is a large pool for cooling off in. Air conditioning is available in all rooms, and there are mini bars as well for celebrating the occasion with your significant other. Separate private bathrooms are attached to each room; and there’s plenty of room for two in their tubs or the shower.

The B&B offers sail boat trips twice per day out of the Bay of Mondello, and you can have the hosts arrange for a private masseuse to give you a poolside massage after a day of cycling, sailing, or exploring the gardens and beaches below.

Errantry Lodge & Studio (Hualien, Taiwan)

Errantry Lodge & Studio 

Themed rooms, photography packages, delicious Asian cuisine, and beautiful gardens filled with tropical flora make the Errantry the best bed and breakfast we could find. The service at this lodge is the best there is, and there are many places in the area to grab a bite to eat while sightseeing.

A little bit more removed from the bustling city, there is no trouble falling asleep each night to the sounds of nothing, and each morning, you will arise to complimentary breakfast of Western and Asian varieties. Bicycles are made available for riding along the predetermined routes for tourists, and the hosts are so accommodating that guests will often return year after year out of loyalty and enjoyment of their time in Taiwan at this particular bed and breakfast.

ronger, there are alcoholic beverages available. This is one place you would want to book in advance!
