Professional expertise

The Association works for its members providing up to date information in relevant areas such as health and safety, insurance, ACC, etc., and enables you to provide a world class service to your guests by the provision of best practice guidelines, business support and training. Along with a business listing on our website, the ability to network with members in your region and at our Bed & Breakfast Conference, the Association empowers bed and breakfast owners to effectively manage challenges that have the potential to adversely affect the viability of their businesses. 

The Association also lobbies Government and Local Bodies on issues ensuring their policies and regulations are favourable to bed and breakfast owners.  We work with other accommodation associations and tourism bodies to ensure the voice of bed and breakfast owners is heard in the tourism industry.

Resources from marketing to management 

Regular updates are provided to members on issues affecting bed and breakfasts.  This, combined with the members’ section of our website, an invaluable resource for Bed & Breakfast owners providing up to date news and information, ensures our members have all the information and resources required to run a successful business.
