About the Scottish Bed & Breakfast Association

Image The Scottish Bed & Breakfast Association (SBBA) is the trade association for B&B and guest house owners in Scotland. It is affiliated with the UK-wide Bed & Breakfast Association, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year.

Hospitality directly employs 256,000 people in Scotland (an increase of 15% since 2010), supports a further 153,000 jobs in the supply chain and contributes 4.6bn in "Gross Value Added" to Scotland's economy.

The Scottish B&B Association is an independent, not-for-profit organisation, part of the UK-wide Bed & Breakfast Association, with the following objectives:

1) To represent the interests of members, and to campaign on behalf of those interests (for example, to the Scottish Government, the UK Government, regulatory bodies and the EU);

2) To provide information and support services to members, to enable them to improve and develop their businesses;

3) To facilitate and enable the continuous professional development of the independent bed and breakfast sector in Scotland, and promote best practice;

4) To promote to the public the advantages of staying in independent bed and breakfast accommodation.

The Scottish Bed and Breakfast Association defines 'bed and breakfasts' as independent, owner-managed establishments not recognised as hotels, and offering overnight accommodation and breakfast on a 'per night' basis to paying guests. Our membership includes both B&Bs and guest houses, and householders letting rooms in their home to paying guests on a "B&B" basis..
