We are thinking of offering breakfast hampers to our guests they can order the night before, sort of like room service. We would charge a certain amount per hamper and have a few different options and then deliver it to the guests at a time of their choosing.
Has anyone tried this or something similar? Just wondering what would be the best way to get payment from the guests. Can you just request additional funds and add it to their stay total?
As part of the guests experience at our Poolside Cabana, I make the guests full prepared breakfasts each morning. There are over a dozen items on the menu which they can choose from, but there are three items which are “takeaway” – Savory Breakfast Muffins, Scotch Eggs, and a Spanish Tortilla de Patata.
For us, the price of breakfast is simply rolled into the per night rental fee. During High Season we charge $97 per night and during the low summer season we charge $65 per night. I have the costs of materials for each breakfast broken down, and my most expensive breakfast-for-two is $5.13. To buy equivalent breakfasts at nearby restaurants would cost you $18-25 and I offer items which most restaurants simply don’t even think about.
For a once-in-awhile thing, I would charge either cash or Paypal.
