Belle Hearth Bed and Breakfast wins BnBFinder Guest Favorite Award

BnBFinder, one of the world’s most comprehensive online search guides for B&Bs and inns, has named the Belle Hearth Bed and Breakfast (BnBFinder.com/BelleHearth) located in Waynesboro, Va., a Guest Favorite for 2013. The award is based on guest preferences and independent reviews posted on BnBFinder.com. It is the gold standard and highest distinction awarded by the established travel site.

newspaper“Innkeepers Linda and Wayne Mielczasz received high praise from their guests for the cozy guest rooms and gracious hospitality provided at the Belle Hearth Bed and Breakfast,” according to Mary White, Founder and CEO of BnBFinder and author of the book, Running a Bed & Breakfast For Dummies. “This award acknowledges these outstanding guest experiences, and it is well-deserved.”

Although travelers still reference traditional travel guides, inspections, and rating systems, guest reviews have become one of the most valued decision-making tools when choosing an accommodation. Guests consistently leave reviews while visiting websites like BnBFinder.com, or on the go using their smartphones to access sites such as BnBFinder-Mobile; and potential travelers read them before choosing where to stay.
