We do this all the time when visiting some relatives of ours. It’s no big deal.

I wouldn’t have any problems at all with the bed situation.  The only time this situation would annoy/irk me is if the host gave the king size bed to a young couple who were only recently dating and gave the married couple the two twin size beds.  I definitely believe married commited relationships trumps new/young dating relationships and should not be inconvenienced over them.

I’d be beyond excited to have the bed to myself for a couple of nights!!!  I love sleeping next to my husband, but those nights I get the bed allllll to myself?  Love that too!

I would give them the choice and have them decide. So kind of a “so the guest room has two twin beds, would you like me to put them together and make a king sized bed for you or keep them as is?”

I would be thankful for someone offering us our own room to sleep in and not having to pay for a hotel room. I wouldnt even expect to be told ahead of time that that was the sleeping arrangement! If it was 1 single bed for a couple, then ya that might be tricky. The only time i have been taken aback by sleeping arrangements offered, was when we made arrangements well in advance to travel far out of town to visit someone (very tight money at the time) and found out (by chance) less than a week prior that they had invited other people to come at th esame time and the others would be using the only guest room…expectation was that me and my 6’4″ fiance would sleep on a small air mattress (both have bad back issues, his being a very recent injury)…we would be driving 11 hours the day of arrival and the day after and couldnt afford a room, so we had to cancel… Had we been offered a couch + single bed or some other less than ideal arrangement, we wouldnt have blinked an eye!

We’ve booked hotel rooms with this setup in Europe while travelling and it’s really nbd.

I’d be very grateful to have beds and a private room, and not say a word about it being twin beds instead of a double.

I wouldn’t care at all. I don’t think pre-warning people is necessary.

Overjoyed :  You can still push them together.  They would just have twin sized sheets and blankets on them.

I agree with PP, you could just push the twin beds together and keep the bedding separate? At my family’s cottage all of the beds are like this, I’ve never given it much thought and Darling Husband and I have not been inconvenienced by it. You sound like a very thoughtful hostess 🙂 I wouldn’t worry so much!
