How much profit can you make from a bed and breakfast?

If you’re considering opening a B&B business, as with any other business, it is always important to plan ahead and work out how much profit you could potentially make. This will help you to see whether the business is viable and whether or not it is the right financial decision for you, particularly if you are going to be relying on the B&B as your main source of income rather than a way to make some extra money on the side. Businesses are constantly evolving, so you will need to reassess your business plan a few times a year and ensure that your business model is still working for you.

Every bed and breakfast business will have its own unique qualities, from the style of the building to its location to the level of luxury you are offering, which means there is no definitive answer as to how much profit you can make; however, there are a few factors which every person looking to enter this business should consider.

Loans and mortgages are of course one of the most important factors you need to think about. If you’re planning on buying a property specifically to turn into a B&B, or purchasing an existing one, the mortgage payments need to be factored into your business plan. Will you be able to make enough to cover the mortgage payments and still make a healthy profit? You will also need to consider expenses. When running a B&B, you will incur many expenses both large and small, from cleaning materials to food and energy bills. You will need to consider how many guests you will be bringing in and how much they will pay, ensuring that this will adequately cover expenses. If not, you may need to rethink your pricing.
