Just to add my breakfasts are "Continental" inc in room rate.I think its mean and petty to start charging on top.Its just before when they leave so no point upsetting a guest before they zoom off again!
Gosh.I think some of you are making it too tough. Keep it simple! here in the South of France.Adults do want a cooked breakfast./menu. Thats making rod for your own back at the low prices I charge
I offer decent O.J, proper decent Coffee( not instant)/tea ,fresh baguette and pain au chocolat,croissants with selection of Honey/jams and butter.I offer cereal/fruits in season/compot but little take up. I also offer boiled eggs( guests prefer 3mins to 5 mins) with occasional take up.
Very easy to get from local Depot du Pain (open 8.15-to 10 am max!)in village.. I also always check with guests what time they want breakfast.Usually they are travelling on so 8 am-9 am is usual.. If its before 8 am I leave it all ready..
No complaints and good scores.
Just joining in from the Languedoc.I recently had a Dutch couple arrive at 9.50 pm.They had not bothered to call me or email beforehand.I had not heart to show them the door.They were polite and "no problem" guests just for one night.
Its my first season and I think if I did not allow them to stay I would get castigated with a bad review.Guests can be very defamatory and get away with it so unless I have gone to bed I would always welcome guests up to say midnite.Guests may have had a meal but I do much prefer for guests to advise if they are going to be late.Its rarely intentional.In reverse I welcome giuests who like to book in early.Its not great but I have had 2 sets of English guests coming abiout 3 pm when after a good linch in the heat wanting to book in early.Again I accommodate them.
I have had no guests fail to turn up but one of my first( family man on his own!) booked in and took off again after 2 hrs never to be seem again .Friends tell me he must have spent night with a woman!!
Nice to have this Forum to share.Its not an easy business but its rewarding to ensure people usually on holiday are well looked after!
