Jim Thomas is advisor to The Number 1 Bed & Breakfast Website as he is the member of the team with the most Bed & Breakfast experience. He has been involved in the Bed & Breakfast industry for more than 24 years. In 1987 he began a bed and breakfast establishment in Wellington, New Zealand, and also established two very popular b&b accommodation guides - The New Zealand Bed & Breakfast Book and a year later, The Australian Bed & Breakfast Book. Jim and his wife, Jan, both have extensive bed & breakfast experience both nationally in New Zealand and internationally. Their first choice of accommodation whilst travelling is, of course, B&B. Jim is still involved with the publishing of the two bed and breakfast books and is assisted by Carl Southern, who has also operated bed & breakfasts for a number of years. Jim was a founding member of The New Zealand Farm and Home Hosts Association, and served on its board for three years. His booklet Hints for Getting Started in B&B has been distributed freely throughout new Zealand and Australia. Jim has been guest speaker at B&B conferences in New Zealand and Australia. 1bbweb are grateful to have a person of Jim Thomas's experience and ability to work with on The Number 1 Bed & Breakfast website. The website of The New Zealand Bed & Breakfast Book is consistently the top ranking site when searching for such terms as "Bed & Breakfast" and "New Zealand". Jim has helped a huge amount with the improvement of the 1bbweb website and they hope to have the expertise of this "wise old man of B&B" for a long time to come.
