Mortgages for guest houses and B&B finance
Guest Houses, Bed and Breakfast (B&B), small hotels or holiday let businesses are part of the same business niche known as “hospitality businesses”.
Running a B&B, Guest House or Small Hotel requires different skills from that of, say, running a single holiday let property.
B&B and Guest Houses are trading businesses and the running of them can’t generally be delegated to agents. It is more than likely that the income from the business will be your sole source of income so will need to be enough to cover the running expenses of the business as well as meet your personal financial commitments. Business acumen, although not necessarily in the hospitality industry, is, therefore, a prerequisite for running a successful hospitality business.
