B&B Rating

We love a good Bed & Breakfast. It's all about the experience. And the main point of a B&B is the BED and the BREAKFAST. But it doesn’t end there. The Globetrotters have a standard of expectation we look for in luxury accommodations.

Here’s how we rate luxury B&Bs

5 Globe = all main features and at least 3 bonus features

4 Globe = all main features and at least 1 bonus features

3 Globe = at least 4 main features

2 Globe = at least 3 main features

1 Globe = 1 to 2 main features


Main features

  1. Friendly inn keeper
  2. Charming decor
  3. Unique architecture of home
  4. Delicious breakfast with at least one signature item
  5. Bath amenities
  6. Garden
  7. Historic significance to local community
  8. Ample, secure parking
  9. Nearby restaurants

Bonus features

  1. Nearby attractions
  2. Discount coupons to nearby attractions
  3. Evening snacks
  4. Access to refrigerator and microwave
  5. Hot tub in room
  6. Porch with rocking chairs

Non-negotiables (goes without saying):

  • Total cleanliness
  • Natural lighting
  • Safe, secure
  • Well maintained property
