B&B in Europe: occupation, turnover and other key figures
Did you know that an overnight stay with breakfast in a European bed & breakfast costs an average € 74,- for two persons? Also interesting to know: the average turnover of a European B&B-accommodation amounts to about € 18,000,- per year. These are just a few facts from the new research report 'Bed & Breakfast in Europe – occupation, turnover and other key figures'.
Facilities and prices
The report is based on a research Bed & Breakfast Europe held in 2010, among 6,659 B&B owners in all of Europe, with interesting outcomes:
A European bed & breakfast has an average 3.2 guest rooms and 7.8 places to sleep.
Almost half of the European B&B’s has a turnover of less than € 10,000,- per year.
The B&B-room rates are the highest in Belgium (an average € 86,-) and Great Britain (€ 85,-) and the lowest in Germany and Austria (€ 58,-).
Shared sanitary provisions are relatively less common: 88% of the guest rooms have a private toilet and 81% have a separate shower.
Internet and TV are available in resp. 78% and 67% of the B&B's.
No less than one of five B&B guests are business travellers.
