What does en-suite mean?
The term “en suite” refers to bathroom amenities. An en suite room means that a full bathroom is in your room. You won’t have to walk down the hall or share with another room. All hotels and guesthouses will have en suite rooms. Most B&Bs are moving towards all en suite rooms, though some will be very tight. Not all bathrooms are handicapped accessible so be sure to ask if you have special needs. Some B&Bs may have a partially private bathroom, meaning the bathroom is private for your room but not in the room itself, rather beside the room. And others may have a pair of rooms with a bathroom between them, which is ideal for a family with parents in one room and kids in another with a shared bathroom for their use only. Standard rooms have shared bathrooms with other rooms in the house. Room rates are less than en suite rooms for this inconvenience.
