About Bedposts

The BedPosts website serves two main purposes:

  1. A place where the traveller can find good quality affordable serviced accommodation around UK offered by independent operators
  2. It is the home of the BedPosts community where these independent operators meet to discuss matters of mutual interest and work together to raise standards.

The free-to-join community now has a Business Club (£50 p.a.) with elected officials and a proactive agenda to represent members' interests.

Thinking of joining? (click here) Here are some of the reasons to belong:
