Canada Tourist Visa or PR visa holders should know about Canada's culture
Geo-Political atmosphere to understand the country better.
These may be an extra room in someone's home but are more commonly commercial
lodging houses. They are found mainly in places with a large tourist trade
such as Niagara, Banff, Victoria, Quebec City and Montreal. Rooms range
in size and have varying amenities. Some include private bathrooms, many
do not. The standard cost is about $40 to $65 a double. Some so-called
tourist homes are reality rooming houses rented more often by the week
or month, and usually have shared kitchens. B&Bs are an established
part of the accommodation picture and continue to grow in number. They
offer a more personal alternative to the standard traditional motel/hotel
and are found throughout the country.
In many of the larger cities associations manage B&BS, while in other
places they are listed directly with tourist offices. Some operate as
full-time businesses; others just provide their operators with part-time
income for a few months in the summer. Prices of B&BS vary quite a
bit, ranging roughly from $40 for a single to $100 a double with the average
being from $55 to $75 for two people. The more expensive ones generally
provide more impressive furnishings and' decor. Many are found in classic
heritage houses. Rooms are almost always in the owner's home and are clean
and well kept. Note that smoking is almost always prohibited (and banned
in public places eg bars and restaurants, throughout British Columbia
from I January 2000). Some places will take children and the odd one will
allow a pet.
Breakfast can vary from light or continental to a full breakfast of eggs,
bacon, toast and coffee. It's worth inquiring about the breakfast before
booking. Several guidebooks dealing exclusively with B&Bs across the
country are widely available in Canadian bookstores. Hotels Good, inexpensive
hotels are not a Canadian strong point. Though there is a wide range of
hotel types, the word usually means one of two things to a Canadian -
a rather expensive place to stay or a cheap place to drink. Most new hotels
are part of international chains and are designed for either the luxury
market or for businesspeople.
