""With the general rush from city to country idyll, more and more people are thinking about setting up B&Bs. But having a big house with a couple of spare rooms is not a guarantee of success. This rather good book could change that...In an easy to read Q&A format, she deals with various thorny issues such as star ratings and tipping, and goes into incredible detail on everything from how to make a bed to how to fry and egg on an Aga...Her book is well worth reading before you make the leap."" (Observer Travel)
A pocket-sized guide for anyone who has ever thought of renting out their spare rooms for a little extra cashSee all Product description

Most of the book is really common sense. There are a few suggestions that I would consider 'musts' (i.e. having a safe, seeking an accountant). The book isn't bad but nothing is really in depth and it's in need of an update - "you might want to manage bookings on spreadsheets if you are computer-friendly, but I'd recommend a diary." and "with the advent of the mobile phone you can take a booking wherever you are so long as you have your diary with you." She also recommends deposits by cheque through the post.
The breakfast section though is useful, as is 'Money Matters'.
The last 25% of the Kindle version was contacts and index. The first two contacts being her personal website and 'The George Hotel' that she owns with her husband.
