Mum stunned after being 'made to pay for two hotel breakfasts' – but people are divided

A MUM has divided opinion after she said she was charged for two breakfasts while staying at a hotel.

She explained that they had booked a few nights away at a country pub, but had to pay extra for the breakfast.

She wrote on the Mumsnet forum: "We went down for breakfast this morning and the waitress asked if we wanted the continental breakfast for £7.95 or the cooked breakfast for £10.95.

"We all had the cooked breakfast, she took our orders and went off.

"I then went to the continental buffet bit and got juice for my child, a cup of tea for myself and 2 slices of toast to go with our cooked breakfast.

"She delivered the cooked breakfast, it was all very nice and then she presented us with the bill that charged us for 3 x continental breakfast and 3 x cooked breakfast.

"I said she’d charged us twice and she said that she’d seen me go to the buffet so had to charge me.

"After a bit of a fuss she agreed to only charge for the cooked breakfast but said to not do it tomorrow and that if I wanted tea/ juice/ toast I had to order it with my breakfast.

"Was I being cheeky to assume the cost of a cooked breakfast included juice and toast from the buffet bit?"

Some people were on her side, saying the more expensive option often included the continental too

Someone responded: "I’ve stayed in lots of places where you help yourself to juice etc when you have cooked breakfast. I’d probably have assumed the same."

A second wrote: "She’s wrong, you’re correct – I’m very well travelled. If this is the pub’s policy they should be named and shamed in your review."

One person joked: "This sounds like a very weird place – is it Fawlty Towers."

Not everyone agreed, with some saying she was taking too much.

One person said: "You either pay for the continental buffet OR you order a cooked breakfast off the menu. Neither one includes the other."

Someone else agreed: "Of course you were being cheeky. You chose a cooked breakfast then went and helped yourself to the continental buffet. I'm surprised you got away with not paying tbh."
