Your breakfast will be one of more than 240 million variations on offer (we counted them!), including fruit juices, porridge and cereals, yogurts, breads, toast, home madejams and marmalade, home made fruit salad, dried fruit, fresh fruit (we can prepare a smoothie from your favourite fruits), and cook the biggest and tastiest Full English (Eggs, Bacon, Sausages, Baked Beans, Mushrooms and Tomatos) you will have ever seen or eaten. All cooked breakfasts are made to order, with no nonsense of having to choose the night before; and of course fresh FairTrade Tea and Coffee.
The Guest Lounge is on the first floor and is a superb place to take in the views and just relax. It also houses a collection of Wellcome pharmaceutical memorabilia. This includes original tea tablets from WW1, Bromide Tablets, and the first inhalers used for asthma. Several magic lantern projectors are also on show. The lounge also has a large collection of non-fiction books for browsing. Small groups and families who can use it as their base during their stay particularly appreciate the Guest Lounge.
