    Maybe.. It is quite a difference between the one layered toilet paper and the three layered.

    So where does the start and end begin of reviewing individual items?? why not the sausage or bacon at breakfast why not the quality of sheets on the bed??

    Some guest are ignorant when comparing the price they pay to what they expect.

    So if I served you a very expensive up market coffee you would rate it high because of its status or because it was to your taste.

    Can you still buy that "tracing-paper" stuff ...... hahahahahahaha

    I remember at school being sent to the toilets to obtain our supply of tracing sheets!

    Coffee wise, if charged for it should be good, if free you decide (we use Nescafe sachets).

    The only problem is I think many guests rate your coffee on the freebies and not the "real" stuff. 

    How about BDC differentiating between the two or better still, only rate on purchased coffee. How can a guest complain about free stuff FPS!

    X) free coffee wasn't Blue Mountain double gold fandango dodo poo, very unhappy

    X) Toilet roll was white! I can get that at home, very poor. (I prefer newspaper in the local language)

    X) Toiletry consumables were generic, I wanted a new bottle of my favourite designer brand, very disappointed

    ETC!

    Sorry I totally disagree. What do you say to the accommodation providers offering budget accommodation, should they jump through hoops and provide top notch supplies just to keep those who have no reality of what they are paying and what they expect? they are the types unfortunately who tend to leave negative comments.

    Once again a persons likes is a matter of taste and will differ from person to person.If coffee is so important to a persons life then I would say they have serious issues.

    I offer a budget accommodation.

    Again, if overall score is 5,0 it is not matter of the taste differ. If it is rated above 7,5 then you can say it is matter of taste. Do you consider 7,5 as a bad rating?

    lol David.. its not what I think. It's the stats and facts. Probably same with tea in the UK.
    I don't drink coffee at all. I preffer coca-cola early in the morning. ;)
    I've explained and argumented my point... and you are being just defensive like the owners in Hotel Hell with Ramsey ;)) joke aside, wish you all the best with hosting.

    My comments are based on accommodation providers charging budget rates and offering complimentary tea and coffee trays in room.

    I'm on BDC for almost 10 years. Went from 8,1 to 9,2 in the past year, because I've learned to control my ego, and started to listen to reviews. Local competition is getting bigger and better so I was kind of forced to make some changes. Luckly ratings are removed/replaced after two years, so my final goal is to reach 9,3.

    Fluff we are on the same frequency. You differ the free ones with ones that are served in the bar/restaurants. From my point of view there is no difference if you offer either one of them. And as explained, nobody is hurt because of those coffee ratings except maybe someones ego.

    Callshannonfirst The more you give the more they want, not only guests.  Life is like that...

    I also  have a coffee machine with 4 different types of coffee, instant coffee, Greek coffee, many tea flavours bags as well as herb teas. Fridge and cupboard  are full of goodies. Milk, eggs, butter, cheese, fruit juices, wine, yogurt, home made marmelade, honey, cookies, cakes,  fruits, nuts, chocolate,  bread etc.,  most of them from local producers.

    Have no complains for breakfast as they know that breakfast is not provided but all this is free to them. Gusts  highly appreciate it and mention it in their reviews.

    Have a pleasant day...

    I would definitely say yes. You could even go one step further and have a coffee menu.

    Well.. the more you offer the better right? Go farest as you can. 

    We have a small bar with drinks, expresso machine, kettle for hot water with tea bags..
    I've made it as a "selfservice bar". Guest grabs the drink, coffee, tea,.. writes it on the list what he took and at the check-out i put it on the invoice. :)
