Hotels with great breakfasts

It is said that we should eat breakfast like a king, and indeed when going away on a hotel break, one of the great pleasures to be enjoyed is a leisurely breakfast served in style.

Part of the reason for enjoying breakfast at the best hotels, B&Bs and pubs with rooms across the UK of course, is the variety of offerings available. Far from the toast and cornflakes you may have at home, proprietors at our selection of hotels with great breakfasts have put considerable thought and consideration into presentation that makes the occasion special, as well as options that cover both classic favourites and uniquely individual ideas. Invariably, the emphasis is on local, seasonal produce wherever possible, giving a true taste of each destination’s surrounding area.

From a vegetarian full English at the Horn of Plenty in the Tamar valley. To the unique toffee vodka porridge at Stoberry House B&B in Somerset, and a hearty start to the day with Cumberland sausages, Bury black pudding and Bannerigg eggs at Lindeth Fell in Cumbria. Then again, perhaps you will fall in love with the views over the Chatsworth Estate while tucking into breakfast at the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire’s hotel, The Cavendish in Baslow.

You can tell a lot about a hotel by the breakfast they serve, and these are the destinations where Good Hotel Guide readers and reviewers had an exceptional start to their day. Here are our top recommendations for hotels with great breakfasts…
