Several years ago we stopped room service for breakfasts. We now offer complimentary breakfast, self .served in our dining room open 7.30am open - 9.00am close. Hot breakfast is available in the same location during the same hours if ordered & paid for the night before. Complimentary breakfast includes 5 different cerals, 3 juices, 7 toast toppings, coffee, tea, ice water. Easily prepared the evening before and longest time for set up in the morning is the chain toaster heating up. All the mess is in one place.
Ideally the guest who prepays and becomes a no show ! No contact from them , cannot be reached by phone, do not answer emails. Just do not arrive and appear to be happy to forfeit the booking money. Does not happen often but isn't great to get money for doing almost nothing.
