About 1BB
    1BB is the best way to avoid ANOTHER boring hotel stay

    How do you like to travel? Maybe you want to experience a destination that is off the tourist track. Perhaps you’d like to connect with local hosts who are happy to point you in the right direction for an amazing dinner.

    Sure, hotels have concierge teams. But unless they live in the neighbourhood, it’s unlikely they’re giving you a personal recommendation. Instead, they’re picking from a generic list of places to eat and visit while you stay there. Who wants generic?! Not connoisseurs of authentic experiences – not 1BB Club members.

    When it comes to booking accommodation for a trip, we can offer you something unique and different. By focusing exclusively on small lodging establishments that are managed directly by their owners, we are able to cater to travellers who seek a more unique, personal lodging experience.

    1BB is the best place to list your property

    1BB is the best place to connect with guests who are looking for properties just like yours. The guests who seek accommodation on our site are looking for properties exactly like yours – ones that offer a more personal experience with hosts who are proud of what they have to offer.

    We welcome all types of properties, including traditional bed and breakfasts to country inns, guest houses, lodges, cabins, apartments, small hotels, self-catered cottages, eco-lodges, farmstays, and guest ranches. The only requirement is that your property is an independently owned and operated establishment with less than 30 rooms.

    If you’re the owner of an amazing property, we encourage you to list your property here. There’s no fee to join and you only pay commission on successful bookings – you have nothing to lose!
