1BB is the best place to connect with guests who are looking for properties and accomodation just like yours – ones that offer a more personal experience with a host who is 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 commission on bookings made through 1BB, but it is much lower than most comparable sites and is only charged for successfully completed bookings. So you have nothing to lose!
