We stayed at a Premier Inn a few nights ago. Breakfast was going to be £7.95 each per adult; there were two of us. Up to two children could eat free with each adult; we only had one child with us and £16 seemed a great deal of money. Before we made up our mind whether to reserve a table for breakfast we took a moment to consider our options.
Remembering we had driven past a family pub on the way to the hotel we decided to check it out. Its signs said “all you can eat breakfast £3.99 per person”. My wife’s and my rudimentary mathematical skills informed us that our best option was for the three of us to head there the following morning. We did. Bad idea. Breakfast cost £18.99. Why? The pub took a very literal definition of the word EAT. Coffee and juice were, let’s just say, pricey.
The moral of the story. If you visit Premier Inn for breakfast as a couple, make sure you take 4 kids with you. Any kids will do. Invite a few ragamuffins off the street. Feed them as an act of kindness. Alternatively, if you know a manager at Toby Inns; invite them round to your house to eat dinner with you – they’ll appreciate it. Until you give them the bill for drinks.
Rant over. Flippin good breakfast though. Their potato and onion hash is to die for.
