B&B Ski Accommodation Advice

B&B ski accommodation has many benefits but also a few drawbacks. This page will give you a useful guide to B&B ski holiday accommodation, explain the pros and cons and how to go about getting the best place and best deal you possibly can.

Why go for a B&B?

B&B ski accommodation can be a good choice for most people but particularly useful for individuals and couples looking for flexibility, privacy and basic breakfast catering. B&Bs are more common in Austrian, German and Italian ski resorts, also called 'Pension'. B&B accommodation is on the increase in France and Switzerland due to it popularity. B&B does exactly what is says on the tin - bed and breakfast and normally reasonable rates. There are some high end B&Bs around but most fall into the basic to standard category with basic rooms and continental breakfast.

Pros and cons of ski B&Bs

B&B standards can vary in terms of both, accommodation and quality of breakfast and the rates do not always reflect the standards. The star rating is also not necessary a great indicator for quality. Prices vary depending on B&B location in the resort (ski in / ski out), comfort offered, facilities and seasonal demand

The great thing with B&Bs in general is that you can have flexible start and end date to your ski trip. B&Bs take bookings by the day, not week and tend to be very flexible on the length of your stay. Ski B&Bs also tend to have a lot of extras included. Large ski lockers, boot warmers, free car parking, fitness- and wellness facilities, airport transfers to name a few.

A big draw back of B&B-based ski vacations is often the price. Especially high-end ski accommodation in prime locations next to ski lifts and slopes can come with hefty daily rates. If you are willing to walk a distance to the slopes, take a ski bus or even commute into the ski resort B&Bs can be had for as little as £25 per night.

Things to consider when looking for B&B ski accommodation:

>> Number of rooms in the B&B
>> Check that room has en-suite - floor bathroom / WC are still common place
>> Distance to ski lift, slopes and resort centre
>> Tourist tax included in the price
>> Breakfast on offer - you might be amazed how basic it can be!
>> Facilities available free of charge
>> Any extras such as discount ski pass, ski transfers etc. available
>> Check in and check out time - might just get you some more ski hours
