Holiday Inn for good poached eggs

Back to work after the early May Bank Holiday and I’m working in leafy Surrey. The toss up between Premier Inn and Holiday Inn was won by the Holiday Inn Guildford which was marginally cheaper than the nearest Premier Inn.

Yesterday, after I’d got my breakfast from the hot buffet, I discovered that you could you could get poached eggs to order so, when I checked in for breakfast this morning, I ordered two poached eggs. They arrived fairly quickly, in their own little bowl. They looked perfect! I carefully transferred them to my plate, without the water that they were sitting in and tucked in. The eggs were the right shape and perfectly cooked, and even better than that, there was fresh black pepper to grind over them!

Pity I didn’t notice the “eggs cooked to order” notice until too late yesterday. I will be staying here again the next time I’m in this part of the country.
