In a welcome change from all the woes that review sites like TripAdvisor sometimes cause for B&B owners, travel guru Rick Steves has created a great section on his website called “Heroic B&B Friendliness.”
Rick is an American author/television personality and a well-known “Europhile”. He is the host of the Public Television series Rick Steves’ Europe, has a public radio travel show, Travel with Rick Steves, and has authored various location-specific travel guides focusing on European travel. “Heroic B&B Friendliness” is basically a “praise-only” bed and breakfast review page, where Americans who have stayed in B&Bs and guest houses from Ireland, to the UK, to France, to Italy celebrate those great experiences.
The comments are truly inspiring to read. Here are a few of the 2013 ones…
“The owners John and Sadie were so lovely and John even brought us to the train station when we were leaving and it was at 5am. We will recommend it to all our family and friends, you could not stay anywhere better.”
Kathy N Stewart (Massachusetts) on The Boulevard Guesthouse, Co. Mayo
“Probably the nicest B&B we’ve ever stayed in. The attention to detail was impeccable, right down to the French soaps in the bathroom. The hosts, Caitlin and Albert, provided us with great suggestions for places to go and things to see, making our five day stay pass far too quickly.”
Pat Cole (California) on Le Tour de Cause B&B, Dordogne
“We were in England and Wales during this frigid and snowy Easter. For exceptional friendliness charm and food, L60 High Green Farm near Kirksby Lonsdale Cumbria was a farm gem. However Bramwood B&B in Pickering was also lovely with a beautiful lounge and fireplace, but the very kind help of owners when we received a worrisome telephone call from the US puts Helen and Richard in the heroic category.”
Kathi Calkins (Indiana)
And on and on it goes. So if you’ve recently had any mixed or negative experiences with other review sites, hop over to “Heroic B&B Friendliness” and prepare to feel a whole lot better. After all, BandBers deserve to feel appreciated for all their hard work….
