My husband and I prebooked breakfast with our room rate online, for an additional cost for two of $30. When we arrived, we found a sign advertising breakfast for just over $6 on the footpath and another sign on the breakfast room advertising bacon & eggs for $8.90. However, nowhere did we find any mention of the breakfast hours (not in the in-room services guide, not in/on the breakfast room). One sign advertised it started at 6:45am. There was no notification of the end time. Imagine our disappointment & frustration when we arrived at 9am for breakfast to be told by one of the passing housemaids that breakfast ends at 8:30am. The front office offered no compensation or concession for the oversight and inconvenience, even considering we had prepaid $30 for it. A previous review from August 2012 expressed this same frustration with the breakfast hours. I would suggest management post breakfast hours to assist other late-night arriving travelers to plan their morning routine. And travelers, pay for your breakfast when you get there, not before. Assuming they're open, it's much cheaper!
