The following abbreviations may be used:
- ensuite bath or shower room
- private bath or shower room
Below are some further definitions:
- Ensuite: An ensuite means a bathroom directly adjoining a bedroom. An
ensuite can include just a shower and toilet, or else it can be a spacious
bathroom incorporating a bath or even spa bath. "Ensuite" does not indicate
size, only position.
- Private bathroom: A private bathroom, including a shower and toilet
and maybe a bath, is separated from the bedroom, perhaps across the hallway,
but is dedicated for that bedroom's sole use. If single-party bookings are
indicated, the bathroom is private to that one party. Bathrobes are
usually supplied for guests' use.
- Guest-share bathroom: This bathroom is usually shared between two
guest bedrooms, occasionally more, within the same party. It is not shared
with the hosts. If only one bedroom is occupied, it becomes that room's private
bathroom. It contains shower, toilet and maybe a bath.
- King/twin: This is either a king zipper bed or two singles that can
be configured as one king-size or two single beds.
- Super-king: This bed is 15cm longer than king-size.
- Californian-king: This is 15cm wider than super-king.
- Queen: This is 15cm narrower than a king-size bed. A queen/twin means either that the bed can be configured as two singles, or that an extra bed is available, as a triple.
- Double: This means one double bed. An additional single bed may be available, sometimes indicated as double/twin. This can also be referred to as a triple.
- Twin: This means two separate beds. Often both are single beds, and occasionally one or both twin beds may be double beds. If the twin room can sleep three guests, it is sometimes known as triple.
- King-single: This means a single bed, an extra 15cm long.
- Suite: This means a bedroom and an ensuite bathroom, as well as an additional room, usually a separate lounge that belongs exclusively to that guest's bedroom.
