Many people choose to stay in a bed and breakfast as opposed to a hotel whenever they go away from home. There are many reasons why someone might make this choice. For example they might like the more personal service a bed and breakfast can provide.
Many of them are much smaller than the average hotel, which might seem a little impersonal to some people.
Fortunately things like bed and breakfast food poisoning are very unlikely to happen when you choose to stay in an establishment like this. For the most part the service will be excellent and you will get breakfast included in the price, hence the name.
However there is a slim chance you could potentially get bed and breakfast food poisoning if you choose a B&B that is below par when it comes to standards in the kitchen.
How likely is it you might get food poisoning?
It is very unlikely indeed, thankfully. The food safety laws in operation today are stringent to say the least. However there are situations where this type of illness could potentially occur if the people running the B&B and providing food do not follow the laws in place.
This is unlikely to happen and it is rare. However if it should happen there is the potential that one or more people could make compensation claims for the symptoms they have suffered. In this case there should always be evidence that will back up their claims. Accident Advice Helpline deals with cases like this from time to time.
