The icon is determined by the category of your business. Presently, your primary category is appearing as cottage, which I assume is meant to indicate a bookable accommodation. If you claim the listing via Google My Business, you'll be able to edit the categories and therefore influence the icon appearing. 


It appears someone tried to correct the listing, but the edit has been pending for some time. I also just submitted an edit via community edits, but since the same edit from another user has been pending since August, I think Google My Business might be your best bet.
