Hi Paul. In our neck of the woods, breakfasts are becoming a thing of the past, with so many alternative venues around now a day. Once upon a time, we were doing about 190 per month; now that figure is 60.

The only reason we do as many 60 is because about two years ago we introduced the $10 'breakfast special', which we promote on a boards outside reception as well as in the rooms. It is a 'no brainer' for customers and great value with bacon, sausage, tomato scrambled egg and toast (cost about $2.5). And even I can prep that!

Many moteliers around here would like to get out of the commitment all together, but there is still the expectation that motels provide breakfasts.

That said, we are a not as generous as you. Firstly all breakfast orders have to be in by 8pm the night before and served from 7am till 8am weekdays and 7.30am till 8.30am weekends and public holidays. Continental breakfasts are served to the room the night before and we don't do newspapers.
