A hotel buffet breakfast is always a treat but is it necessarily worth paying an extra fee for?
In an exclusive experiment for Express.co.uk, I tried to see if buying the hotel breakfast is always worth the additional fee.
Hotel breakfasts vary in price with bargain options at hotel brands such as Travelodge available for under £10 and more luxurious hotels offering the meal for £30. Meanwhile Premier Inn’s cooked breakfast costs from £9.99 while breakfast added to the price of a stay at the Ibis in Wembley.
While an unlimited buffet for under £10 might seem like a good deal, that isn’t always the case.
For example, I found a huge full English on offer for just £6 at restaurant chain, Belushi’s.

The Resurrection breakfast includes bacon, fried egg, pork sausage, baked beans, mushrooms, tomato, hash brown and toast.
Even more upmarket brands, like Dishoom, have dishes on offer for under £10 including its famous bacon naan roll.
Britons could save even more by going to a local cafe by checking Google reviews around the area.
Despite this, an unlimited breakfast could be a good idea if it can help Britons avoid paying for lunch.
Buffet breakfasts offer the chance to fill up for the day and Brits might even be able to sneak a few snacks out for lunch.
It’s important to check out exactly what’s on offer and whether it will be good value before paying extra for the hotel breakfast.
In foreign destinations such as France, Britons might find a great breakfast offer at a local cafe.
Many cafes in Paris offer the ‘formule’ menu which usually includes a hot drink, juice, baguette and jam and pastry.
This could be a better value than a standard hotel offer and a chance to soak up some atmosphere at a local cafe rather than in a bland hotel dining room.
