Alas, Terrylin no longer serves a light breakfast.
No, this is not due to the recession and rising costs.
There a small dining area, which can seat six guests at a time, and breakfast was served from 7am.
Up at 6h30, I laid out the trays, with coffee, tea, sugar, yoghurt, fruit, cereal, bread, juice and jams.
While in progress, people would fly out of their beds, from said 6h30 with a "What time is breakfast served?", and pull out a chair, while I work around them.
They then, cosy up, with maps, and tablets, giving me a major headache, to discuss their further journeys, for up to an hour.
I politely asked, a harassed father with two toddlers, if I could clear the table, and he wrote a rotten review, 'the other guests had to wait patiently!'
Then, there was a Scotsman with a lassie, who insisted the taxi wait for her, as she was busy, with her breakfast.
Scott, cottoned on, with a: "Oh, I see why you want me to move. Other people would like to have breakfast."
As the breakfast was included in the rate, therein lay the problem.
"I am leaving before 7 am. Could I have an early breakfast?" - "Could I have breakfast tonight?" -"Could I exchange breakfast as a takeaway?" - "Could you add cheese?" - "Could you fry me eggs and bacon, as a favour?"
So, I got down to business and had breakfast deleted from my website, and all other booking sites. All went well, until...
On one site, I sent two requests.
1.) Please delete the 'breakfast included', FROM all the room types.
2.) Please delete, from the Information Page -'breakfast is served from 7am.'
Confused Candy, e-mailed me to confirm that she had altered the breakfast to a full English and deleted all the room types.
