A WOMAN has shared how she nabbed a hotel breakfast for £3.

However, Bethan Shufflebotham revealed that wasn’t all quite as it seemed when she tucked into her first meal of the day courtesy of the Moxy Manchester City hotel.

She explained on Manchester Evening News how she got the buffet breakfast without having to stay at a hotel.

Bethan said she downloaded Too Good To Go, which has partnered with the hotel to offer people breakfast at a discounted price.

The app connects restaurants and stores that have unused meals or groceries, offering them at a bargain price.

Sharing her experience, Bethan said: “I reserved a bag for £3, with around £9 worth of ‘delights of a breakfast buffet’ inside.”

Having stayed at the hotel before, she was aware that their morning buffet featured items like fruit and pastries as well as a Full English of sausages, bacon, eggs, hash browns and beans – but what she got was something slightly different.

She recalled: “First up was a chicken, sweetcorn and iceberg lettuce sandwich which would make a rather suitable lunch, to which, if I wanted, I could have added slices of ham or chicken which had been individually wrapped in cellophane.”

There was also a handful of cherry tomatoes that she roasted for dinner, while her dad munched on two peeled boiled eggs for a post-gym snack.

Additionally, there were three cinnamon rolls that she shared with her family and, while not that soft anymore, were perfectly fine for toasting.

However, don't expect to get it at breakfast as you may have to wait – guests at Moxy fuel up from 7am to 11am, with collection spots for leftovers from 11.30am to 12pm.

Bethan said her collection slot was extended to 3pm, but she arrived at 12.15pm to pick up her bag – which featured what she described as a “bizarre” combination of items that gave her a “good giggle”.

Bethan concluded: “It was a real mismatch of finger food and while it would have been difficult to make a meal from all of the ingredients provided in Master Chef-style, I was able to use or share everything within 48 hours, which saved it from going to waste.”

Not in Manchester? Too Good To Go works with thousands of other hotels too, with bargains at London hotels for just £2.50.
