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

When it comes to booking accommodation for a trip, 1BB 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.

Here at 1BB you will find a variety of B&B style accommodation, including traditional bed and breakfasts, country inns, guest houses, small hotels, eco-lodges, farmstays, self-catering cottages and apartments. But whether the place you choose is homely or luxurious, you will always be assured of a warm welcome and professional service.

And when you book your stay with 1BB, you are dealing with and paying the accommodation providers directly. No booking fees or hidden costs.

About the 1BB Club

NO JOINING FEE - NO BOOKING FEES

1BB is more than just a place to book accommodation with character – it's also a community of like-minded travellers and a rewards club where you can earn 1BB Club Points, which can be redeemed for discounts or free nights at our exclusive 1BB Club Leader properties.

As a 1BB Club member, you’ll not only earn points for every night that you stay at a property booked through our site, but also when you leave a review, share a travel tip or photo from places you've visited, or tell your friends about 1BB destinations or properties.

Because of this, the content 1BB site is almost entirely generated by people like you, making it a great site to learn about other places through the shared experiences of your fellow travellers.

Own a B&B?
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, 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. It is absolutely free for a regular listing, which includes your telephone number so guests can contact you directly. You may include additional contact information for a small fee if you wish. There is a comission on bookings made through 1BB, but it is lower than most comparable sites and is only charged for successfully completed bookings. So you have nothing to lose!
