Bed and breakfast hotels – or B&Bs – are often the favoured option of visitors making a short stay who want something different from one of the major hotel chains now found in every sizeable town and city.
The accommodation is often cheaper and offers a more personal welcome by people who have converted their property to put up paying guests.
These are the highest rated B&Bs in Wigan and the surrounding area according to Google reviews, which also includes some self-service guest houses.
