British hotel breakfasts among top five most expensive

Britain is in the top five countries in the world when it comes to the cost of hotel breakfasts, according to an international analysis of hotel breakfasts.

The study, by hotel solutions provider HRS, called the Great Hotel Breakfast Survey, found that the average price of a UK hotel breakfast is £11.60, compared with the international average of just over £8.

Singapore topped list as the most expensive, with an average of £13.89; Switzerland came second with £13.60; and Belgium third with £12.40. Latvia £6.71, Finland £6.30 and Poland £5.27, came out as the most affordable when it comes to guests' morning meal.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the study found that the more stars the hotel holds, the more expensive the breakfast. A five-star breakfast in Singapore will set guests back an average of £25.70; in Germany, £22.84; and in Belgium £22.66.

A six-star hotel in Switzerland was found to charge the most, with £32.68 for its breakfast.

The study analysed breakfast practices across 30 countries, also including Austria, Luxembourg, USA, Italy, Russia, Greece, Sweden, Sweden, China and Brazil.
