My boyfriend and I have just booked a 3 night stay in a deluxe double room for the end of May bank holiday and we are not sure if breakfast is included in this price? We have not seen it said otherwise but just wanted to check if this is the case.
Breakfast is not automatically included in the booking/price of a room. We wanted to leave early, so did not pay for breakfast as they don't start serving until 8.

"The main road is fairly busy in the morning, so a room at the back or side preferable if you're a light sleeper."
"Room 8 - very quiet"
"Rooms at the front are on a main road - could be noisy"
"All rooms are very good , I prefer back of house"
"Rear of the building is quieter"
