Booked for my birthday 31st may and was wondering if they serve cappuccinos at breakfast as that's all I drink ? I read it's Buffett breakfast , is this right and what's the continental breakfast choice like . Having stayed at Simon manor many times their breakfast is good and loads of choice don't want to be disappointed.
Ah never asked for cappuccino so unsure think it was just filter coffee
