Why B&Bs are suc­cess­ful

TravTalk - India - - Guest Column -

B&B units have been ex­posed to com­pe­ti­tion from star ho­tels and have to com­pete in the open mar­ket for sourc­ing as well as tap­ping mar­kets Now, the ques­tion arises whether in­com­ing tourists pre­fer B&B stay over the con­ven­tional ac­com­mo­da­tion avail­able in reg­u­lar ho­tels. A sur­vey was con­ducted be­tween June to De­cem­ber 2012 by DTTDC on this as­pect. Re­sponse from 210 for­eign & do­mes­tic tourists was re­ceived The im­por­tant find­ings were that 27 per cent of the sur­veyed tourists were not sat­is­fied with ser­vice of­fered at the place of stay in Delhi, but none of the 13 tourists stay­ing in B&B units felt ag­grieved on any is­sue re­lated to stay. As many as 23 per cent tourists de­sired homely care.
